SKILLS was formed in 2004 by owner and CEO Dawn Stokes. At that time, over 5,000 teenage drivers were killed each year in motor vehicle related incidents. SKILLS built a curriculum centered around reducing this number by utilizing hands-on, in the driver's seat training. SKILLS believes in teaching outside of the classroom in order to give students the opportunity to learn through real-world, cause-and-effect exercises.
A few years later, Dawn realized that companies were facing a similar knowledge and skill gap with the drivers in their company fleets. SKILLS recognizes that each company faces a unique set of problems in regards to driver's safety, which is why we offer a flexible solution to any company's needs.
