About Our Program

Teen Street Skills is a new community program, led by Robbie Buhl, educating teen drivers ages 15-21 with a legal driving permit on street safety. More than the typical driver's education program, teens will learn about how to maximize their car's performance in order to properly react to adverse conditions.

This program puts teens behind the wheel to learn skills that will be used for a lifetime. This includes techniques teens need to be safe and responsible drivers on our community’s streets, including:

  • Driving Basics, Defensive Driving Behavior

  • Skid Control

  • Emergency Braking

  • Accident Avoidance

  • and much more!

 
Great experience. Nicest instructors. Wonderful thing for the community! Thank you!

AWARENESS BEHIND THE WHEEL

The program will provide teens with hands on skills to prevent injuries and save lives.

My son got a lot out of the program. I’m so glad we took advantage of this opportunity. As a mom I feel a little less nervous about him being on the road. Thank you!

“They come away with more confidence and more awareness. When they have that panic situation on the road, it’s going to help them. We’re putting them in awkward situations.”
