For San Ramon Teenage Driver’s:

  • We pick up students at their residence or school which includes San Ramon High School, Doughtery Valley High School, California High School, and Diablo Valley CC on Bollinger Canyon Road.  We love working with students of all ages and experience levels.  There is a tremendous joy and satisfaction for us to see a driver develop safe driving fundamentals that will last a lifetime.
To be a great driver, every student should learn to drive defensively
5 Questions to ask before learning to drive
  1. Will the school start me at the right level?  Our San Ramon Driving School has a detailed plan which we cater to students of all levels.  Every coach at our school is well trained and experienced to help every student, every single time, and in every situation.  We believe in teaching students the proper techniques and mechanics when driving and we focus on helping students learn so that they can start to drive safely on their own.
  2. Is the school local?  Does the instructor know the local roads inside and out?  We feel that San Ramon is an excellent location to begin driving with its wide and well marked roads.  But San Ramon roads are very different from other roads and it’s important to have an instructor that will show you the best practices when driving through our roads.
  3. Is the lesson progressive?  We will start without live traffic such as a parking lot and progress to quiet roads before moving you towards higher traffic areas such as downtown Danville, Camino Tassajara, San Ramon Blvd, and we will work towards 580/680 freeways.  Doughtery Road is an excellent road for lane changes at higher speeds and Bollinger Canyon road offers high traffic situations.
  4. Will I learn how to pass the DMV test?  Our goal is to prepare you for the DMV driving test, but to also provide you with life long foundational safe and correct driving skills.  Just imagine how many drivers today that incorrectly check their blind spot or forget to use their signal indicator when merging.
  5. Will they teach defensive driving?  Although you will be a great driver, we are always concerned about neighboring drivers that are not driving safely.  That’s why we emphasize defensive driving techniques at all times to keep you as safe as possible.  Sadly, insurance companies premiums have increased cost significantly by upwards of 20% from 2022 to 2023 for new drivers and many large insurance companies are no longer covering high risk drivers or new drivers.  Some companies are leaving California in 2024.  You want to avoid any traffic incidents at all costs!  Reference 1 Reference 2

Take these steps to help keep your teen safe on the road:

  • Ride along with your teen for at least 50-60 hours. Teens lack driving experience; therefore, the more they practice, the better.
  • Watch closely and make suggestions on how your teen can improve.
  • Practice with your teen at different times of day, in different kinds of weather, and in heavy and light traffic.
  • Restrict your teen’s nighttime driving, and make sure your teen is off the road by 9 or 10 pm for at least the first six months he or she has a license.
  • Limit your teen to zero or one young passenger for at least the first six months he or she has a license.
  • Discuss your rules of the road with your teen. Create a Parent-Teen Driving Agreement that puts these rules in writing to set clear expectations and limits. Don’t forget to update the agreement as your teen’s experience increases.
  • 15% of teens still do not buckle up. Require your teen to wear a seat belt on every trip. It is the simplest way to prevent car crash injuries and deaths.
  • Be a good role model for your teen and always buckle up!
