The Tire Rack Street Survival program is a safe driving program for teens designed to go beyond today’s required driver’s education and give teens across the U.S. the driving tools and hands-on experience necessary to become safer, smarter drivers.
Formed in April 2002 by the BMW Car Club of America Foundation, the Tire Rack Street Survival teen driving program, together with the support of several corporate sponsors (BMW of North America, The Tire Rack, Michelin, Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) and Enterprise, is built upon the premise that ‘safe driving is learned by doing.’
From the outset, Street Survival has always been hands-on and designed to go beyond the typical high school driver’s education program. The program teaches students to avoid accidents by anticipating the actions of other drivers. We teach students to control their cars in unpredictable situations based on their specific vehicles handling limits. Students master the application of driving physics using their own car.
