The LEADER method consists of the following three steps.
Taught in the classic classroom environment, information regarding laws, safe stopping distances, etc. are best taught in this environment. This instruction can be made available at the Forsyth County School’s drivers’ education class. A summer class is available for those students not able to take during the regular school year.
Simulators are used in a classroom setting, with up to 24 students, and one teacher/facilitator at the main operations console. Using this method, students accumulate significant hours of "real" road situations without any of the dangers inherent in these situations. Click on the simulator on the left to view a driving simulation, or on Driving Simulators above to learn more about the training curriculum.
Roadway / Track Training
The LEADER facility requires a sizeable amount of land (about 25 acres) to accommodate the driving track. The large track allows for higher speeds, a skid area, expressway ramp simulations, along with the standard parking and turning exercises. The reality of this experience is best trained under controlled circumstances. This also leverages the instructor/student ratio to two instructors to thirty students.
