More than one-third of teen driving fatalities are speed-related.
Teens are more likely than any other age group to be involved in a single vehicle crash.

Winter Driving skills are taught through our one-hour classroom multimedia presentation and two hours in-car practical demonstrations. Students will learn vehicle dynamics (physics) changes in, steering, braking and effects on different road surfaces, how to use ABS-braking correctly. The in-car portion allows students to safely correct, front-wheel skids and rear-wheel skids. Students will be allowed to use their vehicle for a portion of the in-car skid training.

All behind-the-wheel instruction is demonstrated with Law enforcement Emergency Vehicle Operation Course professional instructors during all exercises and students learn how to recover from these simulated emergency situations to minimize “panic” and “driver error.” At the conclusion of our Winter Driving Clinic, parents and their teens will never look at driving the same way again.

The Drive2Survive® Advanced Driver Training Winter Driving Clinic is recommended for all drivers, especially, newly licensed drivers. Minimum requirements are that the student must possess a valid learner’s permit and have had 20 hours of supervised driving experience prior to attending the clinic. For students who are sensitive to motion sickness, we recommend that you take, “Non-Drowsy Dramamine” prior to attending the training.


NIVD’S leadership has more than 110+ years of combined law enforcement experience. The company’s founders have trained tens of thousands of individuals, from new drivers to law enforcement officials throughout the nation.

The Drive2Survive® Programs are positioned as follow-up to Basic Drivers’ Education to be the next level of behind-the-wheel training to reduce “Driver Error,” the leading cause of young drivers’ collisions and fatalities.
