Why Start Smart Driving Academy?

At Start Smart Driving Academy, we love to drive! We enjoy the open road and relish the experiences that traveling by vehicle can provide. We want to share the responsibilities of driving and teach safe driving skills to our students.

Driving on roadways can be a complex and fast paced activity that needs to be taught by professionals. Our professional driving instructors educate students to reduce the risk of accidents, injury, and property damage that can often occur with young drivers.

  • A typical driver makes at least 20 decisions per mile. We will teach your teen how to manage the risks, mile after mile.
  • There is less than a 1/2 second of reaction time to avoid a collision. We will teach evasive driving skills to avoid collisions.
  • One in five licensed 16 year-olds will be in a motor vehicle crash. Our mission is to make your teen a safe driver for life.
  • Distracted driving is the #1 cause of vehicle accidents. We will teach your teen how to handle distractions.

How do we teach safe driving skills?

At Start Smart Driving Academy, we use a State of Colorado approved curriculum, utilizing the Drive Right textbook.

  • 30 hours in a classroom setting
  • 6 hours behind the wheel, hands-on training
  • City, Rural, and Mountain driving
  • Classroom exercises utilizing Drunk Busters goggles
