Teaching your teen driver to survive behind the wheel

Last year, over 5,000 teenagers died in motor vehicle crashes, the leading killer of American youths aged 16 to 19, accounting for more than 40 percent of fatalities in that age bracket. To reduce this number, Tire Rack Street Survival has developed a non-profit, national driver education program aimed at teaching teens the skills they need to stay alive behind the wheel.

The goals of the Tire Rack Street Survival program are to teach students some of the basics of car control, to enhance their enjoyment of driving and to improve their competence as drivers. We want the students to understand how their actions govern a car’s responses, and as a result to become safer, more effective drivers on the road.


The Tire Rack Street Survival program would like to take the opportunity to thank our sponsors; without them, this wonderful program wouldn't be possible!

Program Director’s Corner

“Few people realize driving is one of the most dangerous things they do. A car traveling at just four mph has more energy than a bullet. That’s a lot of responsibility.”
