Special Needs Driver Training Program

DrivingMBA caters to students that live with learning challenges.  We have experience working with students that have ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, Autism, Asperger Syndrome, OCD, Crohn’s Disease, Epilepsy, and Bi-Polar disorder. DrivingMBA offers a safe and nurturing environment for students to learn and experiment with driving in a virtual environment.  Our trainers will provide you with feedback on your student’s progress and what it will take to get them road ready.

There is growing evidence that teen drivers diagnosed with Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have more collisions than teen drivers without ADHD.  Often times parents of adolescents with ADHD find it very difficult to work with their student in developing the skills and the behaviors necessary to become safe and responsible drivers.  The DrivingMBA staff works closely with students and parents to develop appropriate strategies to address a student’s specific needs.

We often begin the process for a student with special needs in a 1:1 Beginner Simulation Lab lesson.  DrivingMBA has Specialist Trainers on staff that will be assigned to your student.  They will provide a parent or guardian with a recommendation as to whether a student is ready to begin the process of learning how to drive and a plan for moving forward.  This gives a family the opportunity to decide if the timing is right for them.  Click here for a letter to parents regarding students with special needs.  It is imperative that parents understand the commitment required from both the student and their support system.  Call our Enrollment Counselor today at 480-948-1648 to learn more.

ADAPTIVE BEGINNER DRIVER TRAINING PACKAGE

This package has been specifically adapted for students with challenges.  We will often begin with a single 1:1 lesson with one of our specialists to truly assess where the student is and if the timing for driver training is appropriate for them.  Once we have completed the evaluation, many students with challenges will complete the Beginner Simulation Lab 1:1 with one of DrivingMBA’s specialists.  This provides the student the attention necessary to help them begin to develop skills.  This package does not include the Defensive Driving classroom or simulation labs as a student may take years before they are ready for that type of training.  If the student does not have their permit this package may include an adaptive permit class , consisting of 1 to 4 students in order to provide a more tactile and customized approach to the classroom.  This class is designed to prepare a student for the test at the MVD.   This class does not provide a waiver for the written test at the MVD.   This package also includes 12 hours of on-road instruction.  DrivingMBA can issue a waiver for the license test at the MVD if a student passes our evaluation.
