Driving skills are useful in avoiding auto collisions and performing in real-life recreations of MarioKart. Become a proficient car pilot with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a five-hour pre-license class or a six-hour defensive driving class at Learn-Rite Driving School (a $50 value) in Flushing.
Learn-Rite Driving School’s slate of classes uses technology to teach motorists vital on-the-road skills. Jalopy jockeys follow a two-lane highway painted on the school's floor to find their classroom, where an experienced instructor will greet them. Once students arrive, the smartboard on the wall springs to life—controlled by the touch of a teacher’s finger—to display colorful, interactive study materials and brag about its perfect SAT scores. Drivers of all skill levels can hone their steering skills in a defensive driving class, which teaches students to anticipate dangerous situations and head off possible crashes.
Alternatively, learner’s-permit holders can take their first steps toward solo cruising in the DMV-approved pre-license class, which explains the physics of auto collisions, administrative laws, and the DMV point system. Future speed demons will also don distorting “drunk goggles” to see what it’s like to drive while under the influence or when wearing Uncle Herb's contacts. After graduation, students will still need to complete behind-the-wheel training and take a road test before they can get their license.
