"If I do not drive the way I teach, I should not be teaching!'
Reality is that most people out on the road driving today are barely average drivers who never have taken any formal theory or driving classes. Many who did attend formal classes have become complacent.
This happens because most people have the attitude even before they take the required theory class, that they know how to drive. The theory test is taken at DPS by just guessing at the answers, if they fail then they attend a Driving School and as long as they pass with a minimal score, a license is obtained. It is not the quantity of years you have been driving, but the quality of how you drive. This is where we get the below average or barely average drivers on the road.
The lack of knowledge of what to do legally, how to protect yourself, how to control smoothly the vehicle you are operating, how to do it in the most safe manner, how to drive smart and how to read traffic is the fallout from the above. Most people know how to move the car, but not drive it. Not everyone learns the same way or has the same skill set, yet there are still countless advance skills that can be taught to help anyone have the potential to at least be a better than average driver and/or ultimately be an outstanding driver.
School Classroom Atmosphere:
It is my personal belief through life and experience that the best education method is done by hands on, interactive, in a classroom setting. Our teen students are graded by attitude, participation,notes taken, module grades and final test in an atmosphere where class in taught in an interesting and entertaining manner with incentives for doing well. The value of attending a Driving School who has the students interest first is immense. The vast majority of both adults and teens learn little and retain even less when taking on-line courses. No check and balance of personal taking class, and no interaction. Sadly, it is about convenience and price, before it is about knowledge, skill and safety. It is about as bad as going to Driving School where you are just a number, they just want get your money, get you in and out or they cut corners instead of doing the Driving Program as it should be.
Our hope is that we want students and clients who have the desire to want to become the best possible driver, they can become and not settle for "just a license" or "minimal standards" "Do not settle for having a license and being an average or below average driver."
