Testimonials From Our Graduates


Wow.  I don’t think I’ve walked away from a program of any type with such immense respect for the people who run it and the final product as I have for TDSS.  This group is SPOT ON in its curriculum and its implementation.

They’re absolutely committed to their mission, and it shows.  The instructors know how to talk to teens and how to appeal to them.  On top of that, they know how to drive, and they know how to drive well.   My daughter walked away from this program with new driving skills and with an *appropriate* confidence level.  I walked away with new skills to work with my teen as she navigates this huge responsibility we call driving.  I simply cannot ive it enough praise.  Worth the investment, many times over. ~ Kristy Bivens Hansen

Wow – Real Eye Opener

My 16 year old son and I attended this past weekend  This was a real eyeopener.  I wasn’t expecting this much training and was so pleased.  Everyone on the staff was amazing and really cared about us.  You could tell that they are very passionate about this cause and come with a lot of experience and knowledge.  I recommend this to every driver.  ~ Kathleen Volk Kirk

Absolutely the Best $ We Spent

Absolutely the best $ we spent on my kid’s education so far!  We drive every day!  And take it for granted that our kids received a good enough “drivers’ ed” at their school when, in fact, they did NOT – drivers’ ed does not prepare kids for the road!

Teen Driving Solutions School is run by the most passionate and caring people and I was so impressed with the entire weekend course  My kids learned how it feels to drive on ice and rain and even know how to maintain their cars!  So much great information shared and we had a BLAST!  Really fun to drive the cars on the course (parents too!).  Can’t say enough about the weekend.  ~ Debbie Long

“I recently signed my 16 year old daughter up for Teen Driving Solutions. The instructors were very knowledgeable and friendly. The classroom and hands-on was the best driving experience that I had seen at VIR. My daughter is more confident in her driving skills since she attended the Teen Driving Solutions. I would recommend the class to everyone.” ~ David Crumpton, Director of Emergency Services Virginia International Raceway

I can’t express enough my appreciation for all the work you all put into this weekend. It was amazing to watch Camyns transformation over the weekend. I too learned so much that I have already started applying to other relationships in my life. I also appreciate the opportunity to speak to the participants. I received several inquiries while there that I am confident will lead to sales. ~ Thanks again, Miles Huneycutt

Dr.Dar, I wanted to thank you for your time this weekend. It truly was insightful and I have already started implementing listening skills to my relationships. I truly believe that you have not only helped me with my daughters, but have also helped my relationship with my spouse. The “un-communicated expectations ALWAYS leads to disappointment” particularly hit home. ~ Miles Huneycutt

Thank you so much for this program. My daughter went through this at VIR and I highly recommend it for every teen and every parent. She had not wanted to drive because of a death of a very close friend at 16 and your program taught her to feel so confident about her driving. ~Thank you so very much for your program. ~ Wanda Purdy

“After learning about a recent tragedy in Wake Forest the week before graduation (3 teens were killed in a high speed crash) I want to do everything that I possibly can as a parent to protect the welfare of my daughter. The price is a small price to pay to protect our children. We’re already signed up…can’t wait.” ~ David Melhado (Raleigh, NC)

Just want to take a quick moment to say thank you for what you do. I took your class with my husband and daughter. I learned so much from that class it saved my life and the young girl that hit me. Because of what I was taught I saw her and was able to move left before the impact which really saved her more than me. A young girl went threw the stop sign. But I saw the whole thing before it happened and reacted. Thank you so much for what you guys do…you do save lives!

2015 – 2

Two days ago (Sunday the 21st) we returned from a two day class where as you know, my daughter attended your school for the second time. (after being involved in a serious accident in which was not her fault so the second time around was to build confidence after being in such a traumatic accident). This morning on her way to school, she was passing a road that dead ends into the road she was traveling on. Apparently a car was approaching from the right and decided it either wasn’t necessary to stop at the stop sign and wait for traffic before turning right or simply didn’t see the stop sign. In either case, the car slid through the stop sign and entered her lane IMMEDIATELY at the point my daughter was driving by. She was aware of her surroundings and instinctively swerved her Jeep and drove around the eminent danger she was about to encounter. When she came home, she was a bit shaken but you could see her enthusiasm as she explained how she used the correct steering technique to defensively drive her Jeep.

I can honestly say if it weren’t for the skills she learned and practiced on the track at Teen Driving Solution, she would have fallen victim to yet another accident which was not her fault. I thank you for teaching the skills that prevented my daughter from yet another mishap. As a parent, I urge other parents to consider that what our children learn in driver’s education classes in this country is simply not enough and where they leave off, Teen Driving Solution picks up the slack. My sincerest THANKS! ~ Mark Mahoney, Charlotte, NC
