Teen driving education program set for March 28


Tire Rack Street Survival driver education program will be coming to Qualcomm Stadium on March 28.

The national driver education program is aimed at teaching teens the skills they need to stay alive behind the wheel, according to a news release.

“Unlike traditional high school driver education programs based on classroom theory and simple maneuvers, the Tire Rack Street Survival program improves driver competence through hands-on experiences in real-world driving situations,” it stated.

Students use their own vehicles so that the skills they learn can be directly translated to their own daily driving experiences, it noted.

The class runs from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is open to permitted and licensed drivers ages 16-21. Registration forms can be found at

The cost is $75 per student, and some insurance companies offer premium discounts to graduates.
