The Tire Rack Street Survival school is a safe teen program designed to go beyond today’s required driver’s education and give teens across the U.S. the driving tools and hands-on experience to become safer, smarter drivers. Trained and qualified in-car driving instructors as well as classroom experience for each student.
The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.
It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!

The Parent Driving Zone
We have partnered with Andy Pilgrim and the Traffic Safety Education Foundation to provide resources for teaching kids AND PARENTS about distracted driving. Don’t teach your children skills that kill. View materials online here or purchase The Parent Driving Zone DVD here.
The Driving Contract
It’s up to you, the parent or guardian, to instill good driving habits in your child. Safe driving is set by example. We have created a flyer with some tips to help YOU be an effective coach. Click the image at right to open an enlarged view.
We have also created a “Driving Contract” that may be executed between you and your child. This contract sets forth the expectations of both parties for safe driving. Click here to download our Driving Contract.
