The Driving School Industry Is Broken

CALIFORNIA, Aug. 20, 2015 A Leader in the Nation’s Driver Education Industry, Creating A 5 Star Driver Beyond Drivers Ed®( says that the driving school industry is broken. was developed to give families a way to make young 5 Star Drivers who can survive among low level drivers everywhere. New drivers may be able to pass the requirements of state driving tests however statistics show they lack the critical know how to drive safely. According to a 2008 Top 10 Leading Causes of Death in the United States report by the NHTSA automobile accidents are the leading cause of death for people ages 8-34. The driving schools and proficiency tests at Motor Vehicle Departments have miserably failed at putting trained and safe licensed drivers on our roads. How big is the problem? In 2011, about 2,650 teens in the United States aged 16–19 were killed and almost 292,000 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor-vehicle crashes. That means that seven teens ages 16 to 19 died every day from motor vehicle injuries.
How can Creating A 5 Star Driver Beyond Drivers Ed® save lives? has the answer by putting important driver training methods in the hands of parents and their young drivers. By subscribing to the online video lessons or purchasing the 5 DVD box set @ parents and their children can watch and go apply the best and most effective training methods available. These lessons are a new and better way to teach driving by master driving instructor John Cullington and the superior Cullington Driving Concepts®. Parents and their young drivers need better teaching methods then what is “the norm” today because sadly cars are safer than ever but drivers are worse than ever before. That is why self-driving cars are in the news these days. Think about it, as a driver you are encountering an increasingly dangerous and thoughtless driving culture that maims and kills thousands every day. This will only worsen due to the negligent driver training and testing that too many people accept as sufficient. Parents cannot allow the cheap driving schools to be the so called “experts” tasked with teaching their children how to survive among so many less than 5 star drivers out there. The run of the mill low level driving schools, or parents who yell and scream while teaching the young drivers their bad habits are creating inferior drivers who are ill prepared to be true skilled drivers in all types of driving situations. The Department Of Motor Vehicle agencies play a huge part in the ignorant type of drivers being licensed to drive. The current drive test at most DMV’s average a total of ten minutes of driving. In some states like Florida and Arizona subscribers to our YouTube channel have commented that they never left the DMV parking lot and received a driver’s license. This is totally negligible and will continue as currently in California 3,000,000 non US citizens are lining up to get their license and are put through a Mickey Mouse drive test.
Many teenagers of today have extra challenges that inhibit the learning curve for being a safe driver. Our current generation has increased tunnel vision and limited multi-tasking abilities due to their sedentary lifestyle which sets them up for trouble. Many kids don’t even grow up riding a bicycle and then when they are put in a car with minimal training they often learn as they go after they get their license. This is a real backwards way to go about being safe. The video driver training program by is the first of its kind drivers training filmed on actual driving lessons with five in car digital cameras. Our hope is that people put no faith in our nation’s driver education industry and partner with 5 Star Driver to progress through this complete innovative program and make their children superior 5 Star Drivers. Our automobiles are tested for their crash survivability rating, 5 Star being the safest. We should all strive to make new drivers 5 Star rated as well.

The video lessons are available as an online subscription or in hard copy DVD’s.
