Dove Canyon Behind the Wheel Training
Welcome to Safety 1st Driving School – Dove Canyon’s #1 driver’s ed training program!
As you might know, statistics show that teenagers are by far the most dangerous group of people when it comes to driving in America. Sadly, the #1 killer of teenagers is auto-related accidents.
Why is driving so dangerous for teens? There are several possible explanations. Teenagers tend to take riskier behaviors, they tend to be overconfident, they don’t multi-task as well as adults; and many lack the mental capacity to fully appreciate the impact of their decisions. Not to mention the fact that in this day and age, Americans in general are very dependent upon their cell phones and immediate (and almost constant) interaction via text messaging and social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter.
Regardless of the reasons behind it, we have an epidemic here in America. And to us, it is just plain unacceptable.
Safety 1st Driving School was founded with the #1 goal of reversing those awful statistics. We believe teenagers can and should become safe, skilled drivers, and we make it our life’s aim to make that happen. We are committed to educating, modeling, and encouraging teens to respect the law, respect their automobile, and respect other drivers.
1. We offer a fun, interactive online driver’s ed course.
For only $30, you can learn all the “book stuff” you need to know about driving in Orange County. Do the course wherever and whenever you want. Our instructors are often available for any questions you have, and our tech team is local, so any glitches in the system will be fixed right away.
2. We give you WAY more driving time.
The “book stuff” is only useful if you put it into practice. While most other driving schools only log about 15 miles per behind-the-wheel lesson, Safety 1st logs 30-40 miles!
We don’t allow piggybacking, so only one student in the car at a time. (Parents are welcome to ride along, though!)
3. We keep you and your parents in the know at all times.
After every behind-the-wheel session, you’ll receive a grade with our unique grading system. The grade comes with specifics about your progress, your strengths and weaknesses, and what you need to work on for the next lesson. This ensures the process is specifically tailored to the student’s individual needs and that your progress is meticulously monitored from start to finish.
4. Our instructors are awesome.
Not to brag…but it’s true. These guys are licensed, bonded, and insured. They are highly trained professionals, but what’s more important is that they really, truly care about each individual student.
We could boast about our high DMV pass rates, but we don’t place that as our standard for success. Our standard is that each student leaves our care as a skilled driver with safety, respect, and caution as their top concerns.
Our instructors can pick you up and drop you off for each behind-the-wheel lesson if needed. They are on time every time, looking clean and professional (no personal business on your time – this is about YOU!) We are confident you’ll love our instructors – and your whole experience with Safety 1st.
Check out our many Behind-the-Wheel Packages and give us a call with any questions you have. We look forward to meeting you!
