Teen Driver Safety Training – Individual Full-Day Advanced Defensive Driving Program • Two Classroom Sessions Hosted by Pro Instructors • Four Hours of Behind-the-Wheel Drills • Emergency Braking in Wet Conditions • Skid Control • Collision Avoidance • Safety-Related Maintenance • Vehicles Provided by BMW • Two meals included Teen drivers who have not completed driver's education are 75 percent more likely to get a traffic ticket, 24 percent more likely to be involved in a fatal or injury accident. PRICE: $389 ....... RUN TIME: Full Day Drivers must have a valid US driver's license to participate. Put simply, our training saves lives not only during their most vulnerable years behind the wheel, but through their lifetime. Learning Beyond the Classroom Unlike classroom-based or online programs, Autobahn's training includes four hours of behind-the-wheel drills, giving teen drivers the opportunity to apply what they've learned in the classroom and practice the skills in a safe, controlled environment. Our instructors are professional race car drivers with years of training and experience. And the cars are our fleet of BMW's, the official vehicle of Autobahn's Defensive Driving Program. In the classroom, your teen will learn the concepts of driving safety: • How cars react under emergency environments • The basics of car control • Common mistakes of other drivers on the road • How to avoid accidents in the first place Throughout the rest of the day, your teen driver will be placed in common emergency situations in a controlled, safe environment designed to replicate common emergency scenarios. These drills will cover: • Braking in low traction conditions (rain, snow, etc.) • Emergency lane change techniques • Safety Related Maintenance • Skid control recovery Your teens will leave Autobahn with necessary driving skills and confidence needed to negotiate the streets of Chicago.
