Teen car control clinic Oct. 7

ACW Teen Car Control Clinic October 7, 2017 at State Fair Park

Audi Club Wisconsin along with Just Drive is Sponsoring a Teen Car Control Clinic

on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, from 8 am - 4 pm at Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis.
 
The Teen Car Control Clinic will teach many skills not taught in Standard Driver Education courses.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for United States teenagers, accounting for more than one in three deaths. Young people are at a greater risk for traffic accidents due to one major reason—lack of experience. Safe driving is a learned skill. The clinic is designed to heighten students' awareness and responsiveness to real-world situations and boost confidence in their own driving skills.

THE CLINIC TEACHES: the fundamentals of vehicle control during the classroom session as well as invaluable behind-the-wheel exercises with one-on-one instruction with emphasis on:

     •Driving basics – Driver courtesy
     •Proactive vs. reactive driving techniques
     •Importance of vision
     •Proper braking concepts with and without ABS
     •Effects of vehicle weight transfer
     •Cornering – understeer and oversteer
     •Unexpected lane changes

The cost is a tax deductible donation of $65.00 which includes a lunch for the participant and the accompanying parent/guardian.

Course requirements:

     •The driver needs a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit.
     •A parent or guardian must attend the clinic with the teen driver.
    •We recommend the teen uses the car he or she typically drives.
    •The car must be insured, in good working condition, and have good tires.

Any Brand of Car or SUV is WELCOME
