What Is Tire Rack Street Survival?
The Tire Rack Street Survival School is a safe teen driving program designed to go beyond today’s required driver’s education minimums and give teens across the U.S. the driving tools and hands-on experience they need to become safer, smarter drivers. Schools are designed to give each student trained, qualified in-car driving instruction as well as valuable classroom experience. They will learn to control their car in unpredictable situations based on its handling limits, and how to make good driving decisions and react more quickly. They become more aware and learn how to begin anticipating the actions of other drivers.
We need your help! Tire Rack Street Survival is a volunteer-based program. All of our coaches and event help are volunteering their time. If you’d like to be a coach and instruct, you can take the online course here to become certified. http://streetsurvival.org/schools/become-a-coach/. The mission of TRSS is to save teen lives through safe driving. Your participation as a coach will help in doing just that, and help make our community a better and safer place.
Where and When?
Our first event will be held on November 3, 2018, at Lancaster County Training Center. This venue has both the classroom and course facilities the program needs to provide both areas of education for the teen drivers.
The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. 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!

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.
This review is for HCG vehicles only. Passenger cars do not need to be reviewed.
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.
