If you have a young driver in your family this book is a must have!

This book is intended for anyone wanting to become a more defensive driver. It’s especially ideal for new drivers learning how to navigate our streets and highways. The chapters are relatively short and direct because I know that, like me, most teenagers have a pretty short attention span. There are also areas for making notes that make it easy for parents to read the book first and then pass it to a young driver in the family with personalized notes and tips included. These note fields also make it a great resource for driver education classes. Not only is this book meant for new drivers, but it’s also a resource for experienced drivers wanting to refresh their defensive driving skills and learn new tips and skills.
