Mercedes Launches Teen Driving School in The U.S.


Look at any statistics regarding vehicle accidents or traffic violations and there's no question that a good deal of those result from young drivers. Over confidence, lack of awareness and inexperience can often be a dangerous mix.

That's something that Mercedes-Benz is hoping to change, by launching it's first ever driving academy in the U.S., later on this year. The purpose of the academy is to teach young drivers, especially teens on how to be better, safer motorists by using a combination of interactive classroom sessions, online learning and also practical driver training.

Mercedes-Benz says that it has adopted an innovative driver education program that reflects the best teaching methods from around the world, but tailored to meet US motorists.

According to Alexander Hobbach, a Senior Manager with Daimler AG; "despite the dramatic changes in vehicles, highways, and the driving environment over the past 60 years, driver education remains relatively unchanged in the U.S. The skills required to simply get a license do not fully prepare young drivers to meet the demands of the road. Mercedes-Benz recognizes this issue and as a result is creating an educational program for the U.S. that is based on the best teaching methods and tools available."
