Alliance Defensive Driving School Defensive & Teen Courses in Escondido, CA

We know from experience that not all students learn the same way and since we are a small and unique school, we are able to tailor each lesson individually to the needs of each student. We take our role seriously and do not stop and take personal breaks, or talk on the cell phone, or pick up multiple students during lessons. You get full value and great training for your money.

Having the training car equipped only with a brake, makes you only half as safe. We want our students to be completely safe in the car if something unusual should happen. Don't be fooled if other schools tell you otherwise. Common sense tells us it is indeed safer to have both a gas and brake pedal installed on the passenger side of the car for complete control of the vehicle during driving lessons. Second, our vehicles are equipped with four training mirrors and three student mirrors for complete circular vision.

To be completely safe, the instructor must be able to watch not only the road, but the student's movements as well. Having these mirrors ensures that the instructor is able to see all angles clearly for maximum safety. Our instructors have never been in an accident with a student, and to this date we are unaware of any student being involved in any injury accident.
