“Killing Cones To Make Safer Drivers”
The ALSCCA is proud to conduct several Teen Driver Clinics each year. These are one-day, hands-on, behind-the-wheel collision avoidance and defensive driving clinics that teach new teen drivers the skills needed to avoid vehicle incidents.
Using the students' own vehicle, the maneuvers practiced begin with simple elements and grow step-by-step to combine emergency braking and turning while staying in control of themselves and their vehicles.
Classroom sessions emphasize the theory behind the practice, but it is the practice on pavement that makes the clinics effective. Training in how to react as a driver follows the same principle as that used in training for sports - practice the right emergency responses so they can be used when the emergencies occur.
Clinics are scheduled this Spring on April 18th, May 9th, and May 16th at Gardendale First Baptist Church, located at 940 Main Street, Gardendale, AL, 35071. Note this is the church's South Campus, NOT the newer North Campus which is located directly on I-65.
Requirements include: driver's license or learner's permit, valid insurance card/certificate, parent or guardian on-site, and, if possible, the vehicle the teen will be driving regularly.
