The cost of the program is FREE, however, credit card information is collected upon pre-registration. Those who cancel within 48 hours of their scheduled program, or those who are enrolled but do not show up, will be charged $25.

Program details

Following a brief introduction, students will be split into two groups of about 15 students. The 3 1/2 hour program is split into two segments covering four main exercises: Emergency Braking, Skid Control, Evasive Lane Change, and Car Knowledge 2.0.

The first segment involves Emergency Braking and Skid Control exercises, with students switching after 40 minutes. There is a quick course changeover to prepare for the second segment involving the Evasive Lane Change exercise and Car Knowledge 2.0 (with an Officer from Detroit Police Department). The two groups of students switch after 35 minutes.


recap and certificate presentation

Following the two segments, the program concludes with final takeaways and tips from the instructors, as well as highlights (or lowlights!) from the day. Students receive a Certificate of Completion of the Teen Street Skills course, along with other participant swag!
