Driving Towards a Safer Future: Empowering the Next Generation of Drivers

DriveSafe, a leading driving school in Colorado, is on a mission to cultivate the next generation of safe drivers and conscientious decision-makers. In the face of rising collision rates and concerning driving trends, DriveSafe is dedicated to shaping a safer future for everyone.

Who Are We?
At DriveSafe, we’re a collective of dedicated teachers, parents, and role models committed to education, road safety, and preparing students for their future.

What Challenges Is Our Community Facing?
Recent studies have revealed driver trends across generations. Generation Z is marked with the highest incident rates, driving citations, and DUIs. DriveSafe recently shed light on these statistics with FOX31. With populations increasing, roads and regulations becoming more complex, and the prevalence of smartphones and other distractions, Gen Z faces a denser diversity of roadway risks and challenges compared to any other generation.

Our Mission and Solutions:
Our mission is to empower young drivers with the skills and knowledge to navigate evolving roads safely, and to instill confidence and responsibility that can be applied in other aspects of their lives. How?

  1. Empowerment-Based Curriculum:
    Driving is more than just a practical skill—it serves as a platform for teens to explore and develop their autonomy. Our curriculum and training is designed to empower teens, through cultivating confidence and resilience. We take a non-fear based teaching approach to emphasize the importance of responsibility and accountability that come with the newfound independence of driving.
  2. Community – Oriented Programs:
    We view driving as a mobility tool that offers greater access to academic or professional opportunities. Consequently, driving can contribute to self-sufficiency and economic advancement for individuals and families. For these reasons, DriveSafe collaborates with various partners and populations to leverage our expertise and driving services to accommodate unique sets of needs. Some of these projects include working with the Colorado Department of Human Services, local trauma centers, youth experiencing homelessness, foster care programs, and the Colorado Department of Transportation.
  3. Destigmatizing Mental Health:
    We are witnessing a higher prevalence of students with conditions such as anxiety and ADHD today than ever before. While these conditions have always existed, the support networks are still catching up. At DriveSafe, we train our staff to understand and cater to various needs and learning styles in the classroom and behind the wheel. By providing an open and supportive learning environment, we ensure that all students have the opportunity to thrive behind the wheel.
  4. Expanding Reach:
    To better serve families across Colorado, DriveSafe is expanding its presence into Castle Rock and Northern Colorado regions. By bringing our comprehensive curriculum to these communities, we aim to reach more new drivers and instill values of responsibility and safety. To celebrate our new reach we are offering a discount to students who sign up for Castle Rock or Fort Collins Packages; Comprehensive Plus or Greater. Use PROMO CODE CPM50 Valid until 8/31/24

Safe driving is everyone’s responsibility. Through education, training, and responsible decision-making, we can create a safer and more sustainable future for each other.
