It’s wet and rainy out there this morning! Remember to turn on your headlights AND windshield wipers for safety. Keep space and arrive alive!
My student made my day today when I looked at his practice log. This is an example of a student who is serious about making sure he gets regular practice. His Dad teaches motorcycle classes, and understands the importance of regular practice in all conditions. I’m proud to be a part of this team!! Way to go!!
Summer is fast approaching and we know that you’re eager to finish up your driving lessons and get your License. Please remember to contact us to schedule early. We work hard to find the right space for you, but we’re only human and there are only so many spaces available in a day.
Please do not wait to schedule your final driving lessons days before your permit expires, or before your Drive Test. In fact, you should not schedule your Drive Test until you have your last driving lesson scheduled.
There is a very good reason that you are required to hold your permit for 6 months before your driving test. Allowing sufficient time for training and supervised practice will not only help you prepare for your driving test, it will make you a safer and more confident driver for years to come.
Thanks for reading, and Drive Happy!
Keeping a safe following distance is not hard. Use the 3 second rule. When the car in front of you passes a fixed point on the road count, one one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand. If you can’t count to three by the time you reach the fixed point you’re following to close. Ease off the gas and create space! 🙂
The brake pedal, gas pedal, and steering wheel are all safety devices. Every driving scenario is unique, and may require the use of some or all of these safety devices. Stay alert, and consider all of your options when responding to danger.
The speed limit in a school zone is 25 miles per hour when children are present. Always look carefully for children when driving near a school and adjust your speed as needed.
Pedestrians have the right of way in marked, or unmarked crosswalks. When approaching an intersection, always check the corners for pedestrians who may be preparing to cross and yield as needed.
Monday Driving Tip: Did you know that you can and should enter the bike lane before making a right hand turn? You may travel in the bike lane for up to 200 feet before turning right. Be sure to check your mirrors and over your shoulder and yield to any bicyclist already traveling in the lane before your maneuver.
When contacting us to schedule remember the following:
- Tell us your first and last name
- Tell us what your schedule looks like

Another one! Congratulations to one of Elsinore’s newest licensed drivers. This adult student completed 8 hours Behind-the-Wheel training with Amber, taking the DMV Drive Test in the Drive Happy car 2 weeks ago. He passed on his first attempt with an excellent score of -4.
Wouldn’t you like us to be writing an article like this about you? Of course you would! 😉
