Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for American teens.
16-year-olds are three-times more likely to die in a motor vehicle accident than any other drivers.
Speed related accidents are four-times more likely for teens than any other age group.
Teens participating in continued driver education programs are 60 percent less likely to be involved in an accident and 40 percent less likely to be involved in a fatal accident.
"I would recommend this course for any teen because what we learned is extremely useful on the road. It was good for everybody and a lot of fun!"
- Joey, Teen School participant
"Driver education programs taught after school do an adequate job of familiarizing new drivers with traffic regulations and driving etiquette. However, this is only part of what is necessary for a new driver to safely pilot a +3000 lb. rolling weapon. The teen driving school at MSR provides hands on instruction in vehicle dynamics and car control in an environment that allows the student to safely explore the capabilities and limitations of a vehicle in emergency situations. This knowledge and experience is what will save a life!"
- Charles, Teen School parent
"As a parent who taught both of my teenager driving though a parent-taught drivers education program I recognized a serious lack of true real-world driving beyond the most basic skills. As a race car driver I understand the importance of knowing the capabilities of your car when you get into a situation requiring a quick reaction. The vast majority of teen driving accidents occur when the you no driver gets put into a situation requiring a quick reaction they have never experienced. The Teen Driving Program at Houston Motorsport ranch trains young drivers on the actual capabilities of a car in a crisis situation. They learn to control a skid, avoid accidents and actual methods to control a car retiring a sudden reaction. In one day the student learns techniques it may take decades to learn through normal driving. I firmly believe this program has saved the lives of several of the young drivers who have taken it. I know personally both of my teens used techniques they learned to avoid an accident. I personally recommend this I program to anyone with a teen driver. It truly saves lives."
