DRIVER IMPROVEMENT TRAINING
Thank you for inquiring about our advanced programs. We are the region’s oldest and most effective driving school. Not all driver’s education programs are created equal. Accidents are often costly and deadly. Would you choose a cut-rate driving school to save a few dollars in the short run? Or invest wisely in your safe driving career by enrolling in a quality school in the first place? We care about you becoming a safe driver.
What makes our school unique?
More advanced curriculum, which exceeds the minimum standard.
We use exclusive Defensive Driving methods to enhance any skill level.
We get the best teachers because we pay them more and train them better than other commercial schools.
More teacher-led discussions during classroom sessions. We don’t just let a bunch of videos do the teaching. We’ve re-trained students, in our adult remedial courses, from nearly every public and commercial school in Western Washington.
Our Defensive Techniques
The Problems: Most drivers suffer in 3 areas:
- The ability to gauge their position relative to objects in their path.
- The ability to judge the timing for smooth interaction with others.
- The ability to make rapid-fire decisions to meet demand.
The Defensive Driving Solutions:
Plan Ahead, Create Space, & Advanced Commentary Driving.
