The thrill of cruising down the open road is surpassed only by the thrill of watching a chicken cross the open road, but not asking why. Saddle up for four-wheeled thrills with today's Groupon: for $279, you get enrollment in Day 1 of the Skills Teen Driving School from Total Driving Experience at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth (a $550 value). Classes are from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m on Sunday, November 20, or Saturday, December 10.
Total Driving Experience's skilled instructors teach teenagers essential accident-avoidance techniques through simulated real-life driving scenarios. During Day 1 of the Skills Teen Driving School, novice drivers with a valid learner's permit and up spend six hours behind the wheel, practicing challenging maneuvers on a dry obstacle course, skid pad, and rush-hour-themed bouncy castle. Instructors ride with students to offer tips on dealing with tailgaters, handling skidding, and harnessing the stopping power of cars' ABS systems. Each 20- to 30-student session includes a scrumptious lunch and awards participants a certificate of completion that may be used toward discounts with some car-insurance providers or as a makeshift screensaver for a computer monitor.
