“Our son is homeschooled because he has a hard time with traditional learning. We were worried about him passing his driver test, but then we found Mike Pehl’s DriveSafeRideSafe Course. Our son worked hard and enjoyed “learning from Mike”. He passed his test the first time with 100%. We were so proud and so thankful to have this curriculum.
Thanks to the DriveSafeRideSafe folks!”

“We are digging into the curriculum, and really are blown away how awesome it is!  I spent MANY MANY hours researching which program to use, and I am so grateful to have been led to Drive Safe Ride Safe.  It is absolutely top notch…the best of the best!  Mike’s delivery is so real, conversational, direct, and firm from a caring heart… is so obvious that this is his passion.  WOW!!  We are super impressed!!  The videos we have watched thus far are very well done.  They are informative, concise, clear, enjoyable and memorable…what more can one expect!”

Angie T – Homeschool Parent, Milaca, MN (part 1)

“The 3 DVD’s are so hand-in-hand for putting safer teen drivers on the road. I am really pleased to add them to our curriculum and offer them to parents. They also are great for developing a parent-instructor-student working relationship. We’ve always tried to stress how important it is that we all work together to put the safest teen driver possible on the road.  I’ve told many a parent you don’t invest 16 years into your child to have it wiped out by a wrong decision – 1-second decision your teen made BTW.  You need to work with them before,  during and after the licensing process.  Mike reinforces that message and validates what I’ve been saying for 37 years.”

“I purchased and returned two Driver Ed courses before finding DriveSafeRideSafe’s curriculum. This course makes it easy for a parent to teach and keeps the teen interested. Mike’s stories and insights are practical and compelling. My son even liked the course and the enrichment activities because “it was not boring”. As parents, we liked that we were teaching him how to become a safe driver.”

Colleen – Homeschool Parent, Duluth, MN

An EXCELLENT Course! I especially approve of the common sense, step-by-step instructions presented in such a calm manner!! I highly recommend for parents who are planning to teach their teens to drive.”

Thank you for creating such a thorough and also entertaining program.
It’s helping me feel better about my first born getting behind the wheel.
I’ve felt overwhelmed worrying about all the crazy drivers out there who could hurt this kid I’ve worked so hard to keep alive this whole time. 😉

Going through this program, side by side with him, has put me at ease (and even given me some helpful reminders). I feel like he’s better prepared for those crazies!”
