Our Technique

Our driver training technique is different because I want you to gain safe driving skills in a relatively short time. For this reason, I constantly evaluate your skills and judge if you are ready for the next step. At the end of every session, you and I will sit down together and go over what happened in the session highlighting what you did right and what areas you need to practice more. If I feel you are ready for the next step, I will encourage you to go ahead, but if you feel you need more time and practice, that can be arranged.

After showing you how to sit in your seat and familiarizing you with the controls and the dashboard, we begin by practicing in your sub-division basic skills like driving forward, turning, braking, reversing and scanning the road for potential problems. Once you get familiar with this we can proceed further and take you out on a quiet rural road. We slowly move into more and more traffic. Finally, I get you used to getting on and off the Beltline and highways merging, exiting, changing lanes and overtaking safely.

What you will learn

Here are some of the things we will teach you and practice:

  • Three point turns
  • Angle parking
  • Lane change (looking in your blind spot)
  • Reversing in a straight line
  • City driving (lots of stop lights) and Tailgaters
  • How to control your car as you come out of a turn
  • How to safely get back on the road if you go off the shoulder
  • How to handle your hood flying up
  • How to handle a tire blowout
  • How to handle the car if your brakes fail
  • How to handle a stuck gas pedal
  • How to avoid a rear end collision
  • Parallel parking (though not necessary for your test in NC, a useful skill to have)

Customer Comments

"I was able to learn by example on how to drive properly from Mr. Fuller. On several instances, we rode out and simulated perpendicular and parallel parking. I was given step by step pointers of how to prepare my mirrors, radio volume, windshield wipers and other necessities prior to taking to the road. I have been an excellent driver for 14 years with no traffic, speeding or accident violations of any kind. Sylvester is a well respected instructor that has imparted a great deal of driving lessons that have been applied in my daily life.",
