Tire Rack Street Survival Has Record 2015, Plans Bigger 2016

Tire Rack Street Survival, a national, nonprofit program for advanced teen driving formed by BMW Car Club of America Foundation and Tire Rack, held its largest program ever in 2015.

In 2015, eight schools participated in the program across the country on the same weekend, making it the program’s biggest weekend ever. The program also hosted its 800th class and taught 2,500 licensed drivers, ages 15-21, in more than 25 cities hands-on driving skills for safe driving practices.

As the program kicks off its 14th year in 2016, the program plans to add 130 classes, added locations and additional instructors, including emergency first-responders.

“To prepare young drivers for real-world traffic situations, Tire Rack Street Survival goes miles beyond the classroom driver’s education that students complete as a requirement to get their driver’s license,” said Matt Edmonds, vice president of Tire Rack. “Our belief has always been that safe driving techniques are most effectively learned from the driver’s seat, and that is where this program shines.”
