• ADVANCED, PERFROMANCE DRIVING SCHOOL • CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING AND MORE

- PERFORMANCE DRIVING OF ALL TYPES -


We hear it all the time - "Get the most performance out of your this or your that!" "Our products will outperform the competition!"

What does the word performance really mean?

According to Webster's Dictionary, it's. . .

• the execution of an action

• the ability to perform

• the manner of reacting to stimuli

Our programs train you to perform at your best. We teach you to be proactive, not reactive. We provide you with the tools to be a great driver. The better you perform, the better you will drive, the safer you will be and the more fun you will have behind the wheel.


WE OFFER A VARIETY OF EXCITING PROGRAMS

ADVANCED, SAFE DRIVING INSTRUCTION IN CARS THAT YOU DRIVE!

In fact, we encourage you to use your own car (which you are familiar and comfortable with) during your day at the school.

Your car has to meet certain criteria (listed below)

To Drive Like a Pro. . . .Learn From a Pro!

Sadly, the number one cause of teen deaths is car accidents. What's even more sad, is that most can be avoided. Do you know that most accidents involving one car with multiple occupants results in the passengers getting more significantly injured (or killed) than the driver. Young drivers are taught how to start a car, shift a car, adjust mirrors and seats, the rules of the road and how to change lanes, park, etc. but how many are taught to drive the car - REALLY drive the car? Not many.

The most precious cargo in any vehicle is the person behind the wheel. That's right! It's not anyone or anything you are carrying in the vehicle with you - IT'S YOU! If your hands are on the steering wheel and your feet are pushing pedals, you're the most important because it is your decisions and actions that protect all passengers riding with you. Do you honestly have the skills and confidence to do that or do you drive hoping that you will get from point A to point B safely every time you drive? Did you know that the person riding as a passenger in the right front seat is actually a co-driver/co-pilot. Much like the driver, passengers should always be aware of things going on outside and inside the car. There is a reason they install front, rear and side windows in cars. You're supposed to be seeing things in time/at all times to best protect yourself.

Today, more than ever, we are confronted with more and more gizmos and gadgets, more stresses and distractions and more things in general that keep us from paying attention the way we should. In addition to that we are constantly bombarded with how safe cars are - anti-lock brakes, air bags, better tires, better car building materials, better quieter interiors, more luxuries, more electronic entertainment devices - more distractions. Safety innovations have made cars better and safer but simultaneously, it has made us lazier with a false sense of security.

Today, we are more concerned with the cup holder that keeps our coffee secure and the cellular phone reception and devices to communicate and the movies being watched by kids in the back seats. You've probably heard of anti-lock brakes but do you really know what they are or how to (properly) use them? Do you know the air pressure in your tires on your car or truck right now? Do you know the fluid levels of your engine right now? Have you followed the maintenance schedule outlined in your car's manual?

Our driving clinics put drivers in situations where they experience how to truly control a car. You will learn braking techniques, cornering techniques, concepts, common sense and the science, physics and geometry of the art of driving.

Segment #1 - DRIVING ORIENTATION AND FIRST ON CIRCUIT TRAINING

All participants will be in a classroom segment where we will discuss the day's activities and will explain to all students every element of what they will be learning behind the wheel during the first on circuit training session. After some additional instruction you will be sent out for your first on-circuit session. There will be directional cones positioned throughout the driving areas.

Segment #2 - THE NEXT PHASE OF DRIVING TECHNIQUES

We will have a second classroom session and then you will get to experience what was discussed out on the driving circuit.

Segment #3 - PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

A last classroom session where we will debrief about all that has been learned so far and then we will explain the last segment. When students go out on the driving circuit for this last session, they will be putting all of the pieces together that they have learned throughout the day. There is always a great balance between theory and practice. Students learn and test from the time they arrive until the end of the school day.

Segment #3 - USING YOUR OWN CAR DURING YOUR DAY AT THE SCHOOL

Many people would prefer to learn in their own vehicle which is certainly encouraged at the school. This also will save you some money on your enrollment.

- Basic guidelines for using your own vehicle -

• Your vehicle must be mechanically sound

• Your vehicle must have good tires

• Your vehicle must have good brakes

• Your vehicle must be 2 wheel (front or rear) drive

• Your vehicle must have a quiet exhaust

• Your vehicle cannot have any cracks in the windshield or in any other windows

• Your vehicle must windows that roll up and down

• Your vehicle must have lap belts and shoulder straps

• Your vehicle must have a gas tank that is at least half full

• Your vehicle must have an empty trunk area and nothing else in the seating/interior area that will move around

• Your vehicle must be registered and insured

• Your vehicle must have front seats that are firmly mounted

We want you to have an exhilarating and enjoyable time during your day at the school. Participants must drive within their limits and abilities at all times. It is the discretion of the instructors and staff members to determine if a participant is over-driving and creating a potentially dangerous situation. The day concludes with closing comments, questions and a diploma presentation which includes discount coupons from all of our wonderful participating sponsors.

From the beginning of your first instruction of the day . . . to the last lap you make around the training circuit, it's a day you will always remember - with new driving skills you will never forget! One thing is for sure, you will never view the way you (or others) drive the same way again...
