FRESNO, Calif., Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A Leader in the Nation's Driver Education Industry, Creating A 5 Star Driver Beyond Drivers Ed™ (www.5stardriver.com) says that the driver training and licensing industry is broken. 5stardriver.com was developed to fill the safety gap created by cheap driving schools who don't teach, and a current drive test at most DMV's that is barely ten minutes long. In some states like Florida and Arizona, subscribers to our YouTube channel have commented that they never left the DMV parking lot and received a driver's license.
Parents often do the bare minimum of driving instruction with their children, all the while yelling and stressing and not really teaching. Families need the advanced training methods shown in eleven hours of digital video instruction filmed on actual driving lessons. By subscribing to the 38 video lessons or purchasing the 5 DVD box set @ 5stardriver.com parents and their young drivers can watch and go apply the best and most effective training methods available. The concepts and defensive driving strategies implemented in this innovative video driver training program are by master driving instructor John Cullington. With over 60,000 hours of behind the wheel training he developed the Cullington Driving Concepts™. These proven concepts put parents and their young drivers on the same track as they watch the progressive lessons and learn how to deal with an increasingly dangerous and thoughtless driving culture that maims and kills thousands every day. How big is the problem? According to the NTHSA in 2011, about 2,650 teens in the United States aged 16–19 were killed and almost 292,000 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor-vehicle crashes. That means that seven teens ages 16 to 19 died every day from motor vehicle injuries.
The many challenges of modern day traffic require teaching methods that are more advanced. Sadly cars are safer than ever but drivers are worse than ever. That is why there is the push to have self-driving cars. Teenagers of today have extra challenges that inhibit the learning curve for being a safe driver. They have increased tunnel vision and limited multi-tasking abilities due to their sedentary lifestyle. Our automobiles are tested for their crash survivability rating, 5 Star being the safest. We should all strive to make new drivers 5 Star rated as well. The video lessons are available as an online subscription or in hard copy DVD's.
