Use Your Driving Passion to Make a Difference at Street Survival

Teen crashes and teen-driving fatalities have long plagued American families. The mission of Tire Rack Street Survival is to significantly reduce these tragic accidents. Our instructors play a critical role in fulfilling that mission.

Volunteering at Street Survival is one of the most rewarding things we do. It’s about using our passion, knowledge and skills to give back to the community.

We come from different clubs and segments of the enthusiast community, but we all enjoy a special camaraderie. No matter our age, gender or the kind of car we drive, we share a bond because of the great contribution we’re making to the next generation.

A great feeling at the end of the day. Instructors often relate the glowing reports they get from students and their parents. One of the best moments is at the end of the day, when parents get in the passenger seat to see just how much progress has been made. They feel a lot more confident in their child’s driving ability. It feels pretty good to know the impact you’ve had on that family.
