Marc M.- I must praise you for your teachings, patience, and your kindness. As you know, Amanda was involved in a major roll-over accident as a passenger, lost her little sister to a fatal car accident, and to top it off spun out in morning traffic in downtown while driving her mother to the doctor 2 weeks before your class. Needless to say she was a bit spooked to drive. Your Day One class, gave her the confidence and skills she needed to control herself and drive safely. She even shares what she has learned with her friends, and they are all better driver because of it. But, the BIG test came about 3 weeks after that day. She drove to the doctors alone, in morning traffic in downtown Dallas, again. She got a little lost. But, rather than use her cell phone while driving, she pulled into a parking lot, stopped, and called. I'm not sure I can honestly say I'd even do that! Now she has been through Day Two of your class and she enjoyed both days greatly! Her mother and I are not concerned with her driving skills in the least bit! We have a 14 yr old boy that will be attending when it's time for him to drive! Your school is WORTH EVERY PENNY AND THEN SOME! YOU CAN'T PUT A PRICE ON PIECE OF MIND!
Mckenzie N.- My experience at Skills Teen was truly unforgettable. I was what you would call a “timid driver” because, I had already been in 2 car accidents at 16 years old! Skills Teen was unique because, the instructors encouraged me to test my limits in different driving situations. A particular driving situation that I felt uncomfortable with was maneuvering in wet road conditions. Skills Teen simulates this specific situation and the instructors teach the student how to avoid an accident. My instructor knew immediately that I was nervous about getting behind the wheel for this exercise and picked me to go first! My instructor asked me to accelerate towards a cone about 50-100 feet in front of my car and then make a sharp turn to the right or left. The slickness of the road forced my car into “under steer” and my instructor told me exactly how to correct the direction the car was going in. He was calm and reassuring in his instruction, which helped me put aside my fears and correct my car. Throughout the day, I continued to put my fears aside in various exercises and discovered a new-found confidence in my driving abilities. The lessons I learned in Skills Teen will stay with me for the rest of my life and I am very thankful to the wonderful instructors. I would highly recommend this course to any driver, new or seasoned!
