Learn to Drive | Crash Prevention Training
An excellent addition to your curriculum when learning how to drive a car is a crash prevention course. This training helps prepare teens for emergency situations when driving a car. Teens need to learn to drive in the safest possible manner so knowing what action to take in an emergency can keep them safe on the road.
One company that provides crash prevention training is called "In Control". In Control offers the nation’s first state certified crash prevention training to drivers of all ages. This closed course, hands-on education was adapted from existing law enforcement training in the United States as well as European instruction that led to a societal shift in attitudes toward driving a car.
In Control has trained over 15,000 students and receives endless praise from graduates, parents, schools, police departments, insurance companies, legislators and community groups all over New England. Most graduates enjoy insurance discounts and the peace of mind knowing that they have been trained for emergency situations when driving a car. For teens learning how to drive a car, a third party research company found a 70% reduction in crashes from graduates of the course.
While focused on training New England drivers of all ages, In Control has traveled the United States providing training, consulting and products to keep people safe from the most dangerous thing we do....driving a car.
Who are the In Control Instructors?
In Control's staff and instructors are dedicated to changing society’s attitudes towards driving a car and providing students with skills and experiences to keep them safe behind the wheel.
Professional instructors go through rigorous training before they are allowed to work with the students. All instructors have racing experience that provides them with a unique perspective on controlling and handling an automobile in an emergency situation. They have profound knowledge of vehicle dynamics. Each instructor is licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Parents Train with Their Teens
It is preferred that Moms, Dads, teens and grandparents all train together. Parents of all ages need this training. Just because a parent is an experienced driver, doesn’t mean that they are a skilled driver.
When Teens Should Take Training
Teen training should not be with a learner's permit. But once teens start driving a car by themselves (provisional license) they should take the course. The first few hundred hours behind the wheel are the riskiest for teens since they have not yet acquired the skills necessary to know how to drive a car safely.
