For Students

At the one-day Tire Rack Street Survival school, you will gain valuable skills to improve your driving techniques. You won’t just sit in a classroom listening to a boring lecture; you will be behind the wheel, driving through real-world exercises.

Check with the local registrar ahead of time to find out about the facilities. The classroom may be outdoors as well and you should be prepared for whatever the weather may be that day — bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, etc. as you feel necessary for the sunny days. If your local forecast calls for rain or cooler temperatures, be prepared with an umbrella and warm clothing. The Tire Rack Street Survival schools occur rain or shine. In fact, rain helps some of the exercises.

Your parents may want to bring a comfortable chair to sit outside to watch the activities, or possibly even have a good book in case they tire of watching the activities. Some of the schools may need extra help. If interested in volunteering, your parents should contact the school registrar and let them know they are interested in helping with the school.

Suggestions for getting the most from your day with us

  1. See the FAQ page for rules regarding age requirements and vehicle type restrictions (SUV and high center of gravity vehicles).
  2. Shoes must be closed toe, no sandals. We recommend running or tennis shoes.
  3. Hat, sunglasses, bug spray, sunscreen, rain gear, jeans or shorts are acceptable.
  4. Lunch will be provided by the school for all students and parents. Plenty of water will be available.
  5. Dress comfortably and accordingly. Check the local weather report the night before the event. This suggestion is for the student’s comfort. The event goes on rain or shine and you should  prepare for it being hot or cold or wet.
  6. Bring an open mind, with an attitude and willingness to learn.

“Great program! My daughter Erin loved it. She talked all the way home about the program, and I noticed her already using the skills she learned. Thanks again on a great program! My son will be ready in another year.”
