Could spending $295 dollars potentially save your teen’s life?

DriveStrong Atlanta – in partnership with Atlanta Motorsports Park – provides Atlanta teenagers with a unique opportunity to learn life-saving advanced driving skills from professional instructors. Using the Park’s state of the art training facilities, including a world class skid pad and ice hill, DriveStrong Atlanta teaches advanced driving maneuvers that are not covered during traditional Drivers Education. Students learn vital driving skills for life including wet weather, evasive and defensive handling skills as well as the dangers of distracted driving.

Our program is available to students aged 15-19 who have had their permit for six months and at least 25 hours of basic driving experience with a parent or guardian.

We provide drivers of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to sharpen their driving skills, refine their handling, and learn how to navigate their vehicle under a wide variety of treacherous road conditions. In addition, the expert and professional driving instructors at DriveStrong Atlanta will emphasize greater “street and spatial awareness,” giving you the survival skills that will save your life when you need them the most.

DriveStrong Atlanta pledges to raise awareness about the risks and dangers of unsafe driving, providing teens with a solid foundation on the tools and skills necessary to reduce risky driving and promote safe, defensive driving to teens of all ages.
