RMM NEW DRIVERS SKILLS PROGRAM

NEW FOR 2024!

Designed for drivers with minimal time behind the wheel, our 3 hour new driver skills course at RMM is designed to teach drivers how to properly operate a vehicle. Navigating busy traffic scenarios can sometimes be overwhelming—our course eliminates the need to focus on other traffic, allowing drivers to fully focus on developing their operational skills of a motor vehicle, while learning basic driving skills in a safe and controlled environment.

Drivers will learn proper usage of the accelerator and brake pedal, steering techniques, how and when to use mirrors, and how to set their seating positions to optimize their vision of their surroundings. Our specifically designed exercises will teach drivers proper accident avoidance, parking proficiency, and reversing.

Mechanical Knowledge

There’s more to operating a motor vehicle than what’s behind the wheel. The mechanical knowledge portion of our program includes how to check the engine fluids, correct the tire pressures and understand how to check them, as well learn how to change a flat tire.

Our program will leave you with the confidence of having a greater knowledge of the basic mechanical upkeep required to have your vehicle running in the best condition.

NEW DRIVERS COURSE FAQS

Q: I have a class 7 license that requires me to carry a right seat passenger with a class 5 license, will my parent/guardian be required to ride with me during the course?
