About the North Bay Teen Driving Clinic
The clinic is designed go far beyond what is typically taught in Drivers Ed or a driving school with an emphasis on keeping the students in their cars with only a little time spent in the classroom. This is best described as a classroom within the car.
The event is open to all teen drivers between the age of 16-19 (consideration can be made for drivers up to the age of 21) who have either a valid Drivers License or Provisional Driving Permit. All teen students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and they must be driving a fully registered vehicle. All makes and models of cars are welcome and membership of the Audi Club of North America is not required for this event.
The cost of the Teen Drivers Clinic is $99 for each student which will include breakfast snacks, water and lunch with beverages. There is an additional $20 fee for any parent or other person who wishes to attend with the student (they will receive the same breakfast, water and lunch).
The event will teach teen drivers to control their cars in a variety of real-world situations. Each teen driver will have a dedicated in-car tutor who will guide him or her through practical exercises of: accident avoidance, ABS and panic braking and slalom driving all in wet and dry conditions. These exercises are designed to improve awareness of the teen driver's car and how to control it. Additionally there is an exercise called 'driving the dots' that is designed to help the teen drivers become more aware of where the edge of the lane (or curb) is located. Classroom sessions will focus on "real world" situations that teens face every day on the road, including proper lane changing, merging and passing techniques. Distraction hazards, such as texting while driving, will also be discussed.
This is an all day event where the teens will spend most of the day in the car.
The Clinic will take place on Sunday April 24th at Solano Community College in Fairfield, CA in Parking Lot #3. Everything you need to participate will be provided, except your car and a parent. Details will be sent a few days prior to the event but you can plan on meeting at Parking Lot #3, Solano College in Fairfield, 4000 Suisun Valley Road, promptly at 8:00 for check in. The event will end around 4pm. Morning snacks will be provided. If you have questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org
