At Driver Training Services, we train hundreds of kids each year behind the wheel and in our classroom programs. We like to make the training as fun and interactive as possible while maximizing the education they receive. Periodically, we run contests and challenges for our kids. We look to our business partners and the community at large to help us by providing prizes we can give away to our students.

For twenty three million students nationwide, the school day begins and ends with a trip on a school bus. The greatest risk is not riding the bus, but approaching or leaving the bus.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood today announced that the Obama Administration is eliminating dozens of burdensome regulations on traffic signs which cash-strapped state and local governments expect will save them millions of dollars. The U.S. Department of Transportation is proposing that communities replace traffic signs when they are worn out rather than requiring signs to be replaced by a specific deadline. The proposed changes will eliminate 46 deadlines mandated by federal traffic control regulations.
If you missed it, June 10 launched North Wales Second Friday, a community-wide celebration from 6-9PM. Driver Training Services was proud to function as a designated “fun zone” for the event. The assembled crowd enjoyed live music, face painting and soccer games, along with demonstrations on our virtual-reality driving simulators. We’ll be doing the same thing in July and August, and we’re working to get some great guests to stop by. Hope we see you there!
