When your teen has their driver's license, and you no longer have to schedule your day around theirs, you might be wondering "now that I have this free time, what can I do?" Don't worry. We've put together a list of ideas to help you figure it out.
NAVIGATING ONE WAYS, STEEP HILLS AND ROUNDABOUTS
New drivers will quickly realize that not all roads seem to follow the rules. In this post, we’ll Go Ahead and give you some quick tips that can benefit both the experienced driver just as much as those fresh out of driver's ed.
Take a moment, close your eyes, and think of the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words "driver's ed." Perhaps you've already been through a program, or you've seen it in movies or on TV, or maybe your friends have been through it. There's a lot of stereotypes of driving schools and driving instructors being boring, droning on and on about tires, emergency brakes, 10 & 2...
Take everything you think you know about the industry, and forget it. None of that applies here. We're The Next Street, The Best Driving School in Connecticut. That's a title we're proud of, and something that we don't take lightly. We graduate 10,000 more students through our programs each year than any other school in the state, and we're able to do that because we have the best team out there. From our veteran Master Instructors, to our dedicated Customer Happiness Representatives, to our newest trainees, each member of our team is an outstanding individual in their own right and embraces our core values both personally and professionally.
"Now this is the story all about how, my life got flipped turned upside down..." Not quite, but the Fresh Prince theme song will grab anyone's attention...Now that I have you, let's talk about me for a minute. My name is Brandon Dufour, I grew up in Bethlehem CT, went to a small boarding school called The Gunnery, spent 7 years in New York City working on songs, then moved back to Connecticut to start a driving school. Almost 7 years later, I married the most beautiful woman on television that blessed me with a now 6 month old rockstar son, and I still spend my work days running this little driving school in Watertown. It is important for you to know, from the start, that my life is great. I wake up happy, I go to bed happier, and I work hard to make sure that everything that happens in between leaves the whole world a better place because of my efforts. There will be times in the next few minutes where I sound whiny, and I don't mean to, but as one of my favorite college professors told me "just be authentic, the readers will always appreciate an honest pen." This is my authentic, transparent, and honest story of why All-Star Driver is becoming The Next Street.
