The TireRack Street Survival program is an advanced driving school for new teen age drivers ages 16-21, and is intended to teach young drivers advanced car control techniques they otherwise may not get exposed to in their early driving training. These techniques are intended to prepare them for many of the unusual circumstances they may encounter in their daily driving.


The SCCA Foundation has partnered with the BMW Car Club of America Foundation and TireRack so local SCCA regions can bring this training to student drivers in their local area.


The Philadelphia region has been involved with this program since 2007, and we directly host or help support at least 3 TireRack Street Survival schools each year.

What People Are Saying:

“I wanted to thank everyone involved in the Tire Rack Street Survival program. My granddaughter and I attended the October class at Coca Cola Park in Allentown, PA. Having her spend that much time actually handling the vehicle in real life situations was invaluable. Her instructor was great and very patient with her. And the classroom information was spectacularly on point. This program gives us (the adults in our children’s and grandchildren’s lives) such peace of mind”.

“I just wanted to compliment the people who ran the program in Joilet. The classroom stuff explaining about the physics of a vehicle and its interaction with the road was great. I was able to have a conversation with my daughter about it on the way home and she got it! The actual time behind the wheel was really good as well. She has been talking it up with friends…The opportunity to find out how you can avoid a problem is priceless. I had to learn the hard way by running into another vehicle.”

“The Street Survival program is the best! My son participated in the program staffed by Philly SCCA club members last spring. Today it paid huge dividends. He was driving home on a two lane county road, when the minivan in front of him was turning left and was broadsided by a small car traveling at a high rate of speed from the oncoming lane. The car veered directly toward our son. He calmly performed a lane change, which he practiced as part of the Street Survival program. He avoided a head on collision, drove through the debris in the oncoming lane and traveled to a safe location to ensure his tires were ok. He then returned to the scene of the accident to provide his contact info to police as a witness, not a part of the collision.”
