|About||Defensive Driving Specialists is a driving school owned and operated by Alan Musilek.|
At DDS, we treat each and every person that comes to DDS as if they were a member of our family. The training and evaluation that they will receive will be second to none. As you have probably already heard, the death rate for 16 year old drivers has almost doubled over the past 20 years. Once a driver turns 17, the risk drops way off. Why is this? It's due to many reasons, but primarily to inexperience. Well then, how does one get the experience that is needed without driving? The answer is in the type of training they receive. If you only train on quiet residential streets and never face real traffic and difficult situations, then you will not be ready for it and more than not luck is the determining factor whether you are in an accident or not.
Automobiles are the number one killer of young people in the nation. Yet many people want the easiest, fastest, and cheapest driving course available. It's almost criminal that some driving schools teach only the minimum skills necessary to pass the Department of Transportation road test. As a result, some driving schools only provide minimal training, overload vehicles, and thus charge less. On the other hand, DDS has an up to date vehicle with a 4-wheel anti-lock brakes and a state of the art hydraulic braking system for the instructor for added safety. We use the I.P.D.E. method of defensive driving which will turn an average, new, high risk driver into a safe, defensive, low risk driver.

I have over 20 years of teaching experience in the Driver Education field and have never had a student killed that I taught both phases of Driver Education, too. These statistics only apply their graduation from high school as after that it is too diffi
