What We're About...
We specialize in defensive driving. "Keep your eyes on the road" is good advice but there is a lot more to it. Identifying potential problems is a major focus of the course. Most driving schools focus on vehicle control and rules of the road. We believe defensive driving is probably the most critical. Many drivers learn defensive driving techniques through years of experience and possibly serious car accidents. What they don't understand is there are a few basic principles of defensive driving that apply to almost any driving situation. Some laws, such as Following to Closely, reflect defensive driving. But for the most part there aren't very many laws specificaly designed for when others don't follow the laws. We believe in immediately jumping into "advanced" techniques and principles. The students don't even realize they are learning vehicle control and rules of the road while they are analyzing the road for hazards.
The homework in the class is designed to make the student think rather than transfer knowledge from a book to paper. Here is a sample questions..."In what way is a Harley Davidson motorcycle safer than an electric car?"
Option 2: Prepay to get your drives scheduled before the parent meeting. This is the best option if you have a very busy schedule (school sports, clubs, work, etc.) The Policy, Contact, and Schedule Forms will be emailed. After you sign and send back a snapshot of the forms a PayPal invoice will be emailed ($5 charge is included). Your driving schedule will be temporarily reserved - you will have 3 days to pay the invoice. *When you pay, your schedule is locked in. We will still have a meeting to turn in signed forms, receive driversed.com access code and meet your instructor. Students are required to attend.
Here is a list of driving blocks. 2 students drive in each block for 3 to 3.5 hrs (1.5 -1.75 hrs each). Students can ONLY drive 1 block per day. Please view or print the official Schedule Form. It has information on the parent observation drive and locations. THIS IS ALL FIRST COME - FIRST SERVED. After you request specific days & times (and they have been confirmed available) you will have 3 days to pay for the course. After 3 days the the days & times requested will be available to other students.
Yes. Prepay allows for early scheduling if you have a busy schedule. We still need to have quick parent meeting at least 2 weeks before the first drive. To pay in advance you must...
-Call first to see what drive times are available. If your desired schedule is available we will email you Policy Form, Parent Contact Form, and Schedule Form.
-Print and sign each page of the Policy and Contact forms. Please text or email a snapshot of each page to 208-863-4154 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Some parents have PDF'd the forms.
-Please fill out the Scheduling Form. You do not have to print or sign it but please send a snapshot or PDF of it.
-After we send you a confirmation text, we will send you a PayPal invoice via email. Please pay using a credit card or debit card. You do not need a PayPal account. (The cost will be $5 more because PayPal charges a fee)
-When we get a PayPal receipt we will create a schedule based on your schedule preferences and email the schedule to you. You will get the driversed.com access code to start the online course at the parent meeting. The signed forms will also need to be turned in at the meeting. We will let you know via text or email of upcoming meeting places and times. Students are required to attend.
We must have a meeting at least 2 weeks prior to first drive or the "locked-in" schedule may become unlocked and you may lose your scheduled drive times. Students must have at least 2 weeks to work on the driversed.com online course before the first drive. You will be notified of meeting places and times throughout the month.
NO MORE DEATHS -- NO MORE INJURIES -- NO MORE CLOSE CALLS -- NO MORE STRESS
I believe driving today is more dangerous than ever and the typical drivers education school is not addressing these dangers nor giving students the necessary tools to avoid them. At Ultra Safe I teach students safer, defensive driving. This means learning how to scan the roadway, identify and prioritize potential problems, discuss what defensive driving tool can prevent the problem, and then what to do if the problem actually occurs. Students soon understand the majority of all wrecks are caused by just few things and most of those things can be controlled through knowledge, practice, and discipline. After working for 3 large driving schools and public driver education I feel most driving schools only focus on controlling the vehicle and memorizing driving laws - rarely going into serious advanced training. Ultra Safe goes above and beyond basic driver education. I always explain "Why..." so that students are able to explain advanced concepts like reaction time and identify the relationships between speed, space, distraction, visibility, and other factors in most wrecks. My students graduate with a deeper understanding of the driving task and a greater confidence when entering the driving culture. I ultimately want students to learn safe driving from effective training - not their own bad experiences. - Wes Hult
How Are We Different?
More Practice Time Behind-the-Wheel - Students drive a minimum 7 hours compared to *5.5 hrs in other schools. Students also receive over 7 hours of defensive driving instruction in addition to the 7 hours of actual driving. *All driving school including public driver education claim students receive 6 hours of driving - but after seat, headrest, mirror adjustments and pre-drive overview students lose at least 30 minutes of actual driving. UltraSafe students receive an actual 7 hours of driving.
Fastest Way To Get Your Permit - With only 7 drives most students complete the course within 2 to 3 weeks after the first drive.
Time Saving - Classroom instruction is online which means no driving across town to drop off and pick up your student. Students complete the online course at their own pace and convenience. Also, some students might be able to drive themselves home.
Parent Observation Drive - Very Important! - We have a 45 minute parent observation drive. You will have the opportunity to see first hand our defensive driving instruction and observe your student's strengths and weaknesses before they drive with you. We are proud of our training and have nothing to hide - Also UltraSafe is the only private driving school to allow parents to ride along on any part, or all of the drives!
Highly Qualified Instructor - Very Important! You will be trained exclusively by a 12 year veteran instructor who can accurately evaluate your progress. This is important because being taught by more than one instructor makes it harder to determine progress and address struggling areas.
High Quality Drives - Fast doesn't mean low quality. Your student will receive the best customized instruction. Special assignments, videos, and reading materials supplement the Idaho Online Driver Education course.
Flexibility - No Assembly Line Feeling Most driving schools have strict schedules where there is little flexibility. If a parent is late, the student's drive is shortened and the drives cannot go longer than planned because there are more students to teach. With Ultra Safe it is okay if your late and many drives go longer than planned simply because we enjoy teaching. Since we only teach a few students per month rescheduling usually isn't a problem.
Student Progress Updates For Parents - Receive text notifications of student progress, problem areas, and overall assessment.
