  • Drivers under 21 years are involved in 3 times more crashes than drivers 21 years or older.

This is an intense one day program that teaches safe driving attitudes and advanced defensive driving skills at the only facility in the Chicago area large enough to safely conduct these exercises. Our staff of Professional Advanced Driving and Car Control Instructors teach emergency handling to Law Enforcement, Fleet Drivers and Individuals.

Your teen will get behind the wheel of their own vehicle, not a simulator. We are setup year-round to create winter driving conditions and teach techniques including emergency braking, skid control, crash avoidance, and vehicle familiarity and maintenance.

Through the creation of various accident scenarios your teen will learn the skills of how to handle a car, the importance of awareness and the potential results of distracted driving and excessive speed. Parents are invited to meet the instructor team and get behind the wheel of the Mazda fleet to execute several key drills while the teens are in their morning classroom session.
