Sign your son or daughter up for drivers' education

Date: 5/8/2009

WEST SPRINGFIELD In an effort to address the high teen driving accident rate, AAA Insurance is partnering with the Driven School of Advanced Driver Training. The goal of Driven is to provide an advanced driver training program for drivers of all ages and all levels of driving experience.

Driven's mission is simple, to save lives by teaching skills that reduce the damage of property and the incidence of physical injury caused by motor vehicle crashes. Through innovative techniques, Driven seeks to provide training that will develop better, safer, more conscious and aware drivers.

Driven School of Advanced Driver Training offers an unmatched program and qualified instructors with law enforcement background. The instructors have also investigated many motor vehicle crashes and have a firm understanding of their causes and consequences.

Certified by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles, Driven was developed as a result of investigating actual car crashes on public ways. The instructors provide training to thousands of police officers (whose lives depends on it).

"We chose to partner with Driven because they offer a dynamic course that is reflective of real world demands," Steve Brochu, AAA's VP of Insurance, said. "Many other driving schools offer static courses. However, the real world is by no means static and that is why the dynamic training that Driven provides is essential. How students are trained can impact their real world responses."

Sign your son or daughter up for a Driven Advanced Driving Training course today. AAA members who enroll for AAA Day, May 9, will save $50 off the registration fee and their son or daughter will receive a free one year basic AAA membership. There will be two sessions on May 9 at the Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, Conn., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 1 to 5 p.m. For more information, visit or call Driven directly at 667-4365.
