Learning to drive: the most exciting (and nerve-wracking) time in a teenager's life. While some kids are haunted by the ghost of parallel parking, others seem like they were made for the driver's seat. The difference? Often, it's a class from DriversEd.com, which boasts more than 25 years of experience. Their online classes?customized and approved for each state in the US?prep new drivers for the road with a combination of streaming videos, interactive case studies, and engaging activities. Once students master the principles of the motorway, they can prep for their exam with the site's practice tests. In addition to helping student drivers on the way to their first vroom, DriversEd.com also offers remedial traffic school and defensive driving courses for those who need to brush up behind the wheel.

The mobile technicians from Help My Headlights eschew quick-fix methods when they nurture polycarbonate plastic headlights back to crystal-clear health. Unlike older glass lenses, modern versions can oxidize when exposed to UV rays, pollution, rain, and the bottom of the Mariana Trench, so simple wipe-off treatments won’t produce lasting results. Techs start the meticulous process by taping around the headlight to protect the car's paint. They then treat the headlights before wet sanding the lens to excavate the clear plastic from behind the oxidized surface. They conclude the service by buffing, polishing, and covering the translucent lens with protective coatings.

Segway of Oakland harbors a fleet of off-road Segway x2s and street-friendly Segway i2s, which renters mount for city tours, lessons, and offsite events. Both tours and lessons begin with a video overview of segway basics to acquaint the rider and the ridden. Tours then traverse the city, with guides sharing historical tidbits on Oakland?s oak-ruled past on a route that hits Jack London Square, the downtown sector, and the shores of Lake Merritt. Group lessons jet through skill-building exercises in parking lots and on bike paths. After building confidence, students graduate to higher speeds and more varied terrains, such as bridges and grassy fields, and lessons culminate in an independent ride. Segway of Oakland can also enrich team-building events for companies or exceptionally competitive families with segway demonstrations.
