Main Street Minute: ABC Minot Driving School

Posted: Updated:

We've all been there. We've just received our permit to drive a car. But, in order to hop behind wheel it's important to practice defensive driving.

Once your teenager steps into a car; putting a key in the engine could be pretty scary for a parent.

"You start off in driving situations where there isn't much traffic, but eventually you're going to have to get in that traffic,” says Jason Schwarz a ABC Minot Driving School instructor.

That's why Schwarz opened up ABC Minot Driving School to teach students to become safe drivers.

When a child turns 14 in the state of North Dakota, he or she is able to get behind wheel.

"It is a young age. But its state law and when the kids turn 14, they're looking to get that permit right away. And, parents are supporting them in that decision and so we want to best prepare them in the right way,” says Schwarz.

The student driver car has dual controls so at point during the drive, the instructor can take over.

"Whether it's the brakes or accelerator, should there be a potential problem. But, as a parent, in your normal vehicle, you don't have those controls, so you're at the mercy of the decision making of the student. Being in situations that they've never been in before,” says Schwarz.

The program consists of six hours minimum of driving behind the wheel. They usually spread the hours out on a three day period.
