WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Our son worked hard and enjoyed “learning from Mike”.

Jean H. – Homeschool Parent- St. Paul, MN.

Our son is homeschooled because he has a hard time with traditional learning. We were worried about him passing his driver test, but then we found Mike Pehl’s DriveSafeRideSafe Course. Our son worked hard and enjoyed “learning from Mike”. He passed his test the first time with 100%. We were so proud and so thankful to have this curriculum. Thanks to the DriveSafeRideSafe folks!

Easy to understand and very practical.

Vicki D (Driver Ed Instructor)

I like how the steps and ideas to help parents and students are easy to understand and very practical. Doing these steps and practices will make teen drivers and experienced drivers even more Roadworthy.

The car cam emails that we receive are really awesome!

Angie T - Homeschool Parent, Milaca, MN

These images are imprinted on my sons brain, and he has re-enacted them with Hotwheels to tell family and friends about the video.  I believe one of the best ways to really understand something to the point that it becomes a part of you is to teach it.  His Hotwheel demonstrations bring the level of understanding up for sure.  I know that these short video segments will have a lasting impression on his driving attitude and skills.  Thank-you for sharing these videos as well!! A sincerely, very satisfied and thankful customer! Blessings on your endeavors!!

I've told many a parent you don't invest 16 years into your child to have it wiped out by a wrong decision

Mary Madden (Range Driver Training)

The 3 DVD's are so hand-in-hand for putting safer teen drivers on the road. I am really pleased to add them to our curriculum and offer them to parents. They also are great for developing a parent-instructor-student working relationship. We've always tried to stress how important it is that we all work together to put the safest teen driver possible on the road.  I've told many a parent you don't invest 16 years into your child to have it wiped out by a wrong decision - 1 second decision your teen made BTW.  You need to work with them before,  during and after the licensing process.  Mike reinforces that message and validates what I've been saying for 37 years.

Was very helpful!

Rosa – San Diego, CA

I needed help with my driver test and the book helped me learn what I needed about the roads and signs and laws and then the DVD gave me step by step instructions on how to start in a parking lot and work my way up to driving on the freeways safely.

It was not boring!

Colleen - Homeschool Parent, Duluth, MN

I purchased and returned two Driver Ed courses before finding DriveSafeRideSafe’s curriculum. This course makes it easy for a parent to teach and keeps the teen interested. Mike’s stories and insights are practical and compelling. My son even liked the course and the enrichment activities because “it was not boring”. As parents we liked that we were teaching him how to become a safe driver.

An EXCELLENT Course!

Diana J (Tulsa, Ok.)

An EXCELLENT Course! I especially approve of the common sense, step-by-step instructions presented in such a calm manner!! I highly recommend for parents who are planning to teach their teens to drive.

Knowing how to drive is not enough when it comes to teaching someone else!Julie S (Mother of 3 accident free teens)

Julie S (Mother of 3 accident free teens)

Very valuable information!  This video gave me a real sense of security and plan of action when getting in the car with my new driver.  I learned several things about driving for myself,  as well.  Knowing how to drive is not enough when it comes to teaching someone else!
