The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!

Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

All Schools $95.

Parents are encouraged to stay!  Please arrive early.

Vehicles with modifications that alter the center of gravity (i.e. lift kits) are not acceptable.

High Center of Gravity Vehicles (HCGs) such as SUVs, SAVs, Trucks, Jeep-type vehicles, and Minivans will need to be verified.  The older HCGs without electronic stability control (not just the electronic traction control) will not be accepted.

HCG vehicles may still be limited with respect to the exercises in which they are allowed to participate based on local venue conditions.

Please look up the HCG vehicle safety score. You can research the safety ratings that a vehicle has received at www.edmunds.com  Input the vehicle and year and look at the safety rating in the upper right corner of the web page.

Any vehicle with a listing of 3 stars or more out of 5 in the Roll Over test will be allowed to participate in our class. We are concerned about the Roll Over test on the HCG only. We are not concerned about the crash test ratings.

Any HCG vehicle listed as “not tested” in the Roll Over test will not be allowed to participate.

ALL COMMUNICATION REGARDING THE SCHOOL WILL BE SENT TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS ON THE REGISTRATION LISTED AS THE STUDENT’S.

Fall Colors Tour to Dubuque, IA – October 16-17

Fall Colors Tour to Dubuque, IA – October 16-17

Planning is underway for this year’s Fall Colors Tour, under the guidance of Warren Byerly.  We’ll start mid-morning on Saturday, October 16 at the Meskwaki Casino parking lot near Tama, taking a tour route through northeast Iowa and then overnighting in Dubuque. The Saturday lunch stop has not been nailed down yet, but watch for something with local color, so to speak! Saturday night’s dinner has been reserved at Timmerman’s in East Dubuque. A Sunday morning drive will bring us back down the Mississippi River before participants break off for their home areas.

Some of the details are still being finalized, but we encourage all potential participants to get Dubuque lodgings lined up now if you think you might want to participate. Fall Colors season is always busy, but this year will book up especially early with the return of visitors who were not able to travel last year. We will not have a single hotel with a room block; instead here are a few ideas for possible stays that we’ve used in the past. Some of these properties are already partially booked up, so don’t delay!
