Novice Driver Training

Coaching New Drivers -

Coaching New Drivers is a program we designed to supplement driver education for novice drivers.  The crash rates for new drivers have been approximated at 1 in 2 for drivers in their first 6 months of driving on their own. Together with premier driving educators, governments, insurance companies and particularly parents and guardians, we want to do our part to help reduce the human and financial costs of these avoidable collisions.

We teamed up with veteran crash investigator and driving educator, Mike Pehl to provide a comprehensive program which helps parents to be more effective during supervised driving in the learner's stage and helps new drivers stay aware of the situations that have proven most dangerous for novice drivers once they start driving on their own.  These two online courses are presented on a customized, password protected dashboard to accommodate all different course completion rates and styles of learning.

We follow that up with automated monthly newsletters to engage coaches and provides more useful tips and tricks, video resources and graduated licensing information.  Included is access to our Coaching New Drivers You-niversity site with even more information more parents and guardians of a soon-to-be new driver.

Part two of the program helps novice drivers to maintain awareness of the most dangerous situations shown to be the primary causes of collisions.  "Danger Zone Training" is our novice driver collision reduction course and features 6 videos with a new danger zone lesson being delivered every month for six months.  This type of drip-learning in which small bite-size chunks are presented at regular intervals has been shown to greatly increase the retention of valuable material.  The content in this course includes important information and strategies on reducing risk in the top areas of novice driver collisions as determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (
