Marysville, Washington (PRWEB) April 15, 2011
Marysville 911 Driving School opens its doors on May 2, 2011, providing a one-of-a-kind approach to drivers education. All 911 Driving School classes are taught exclusively by local police officers who bring their unmatched experience, knowledge, and trust to the classroom.
Co-owners Peter Barrett, Ronnie Johnstone, and Seth Kinney, all officers with the Arlington Police Department, will host an informal open house for the community. They encourage parents and potential students to stop by and meet the instructors, learn about the curriculum, and check out their facility and their brand-new Kia Soul training vehicles.
“We are convinced that police officers are the best driving instructors,” said Barrett. “We see the effects of poor decision making every day on the roads. We have a complete vested interest in helping kids become good drivers.”
Barrett, Johnstone, and Kinney collectively have over 20 years of law enforcement experience and see this opportunity to teach drivers education as a way to give back and do more than just enforce the law.
“Kids have to learn a very valuable skill in a very short period of time,” said Barrett. “It’s imperative that they have passionate instructors who are well-versed in current traffic laws and engage students by sharing their real-life, first-hand experiences.”
As active police officers, all 911 Driving School instructors have received more than 700 hours of professional training, including vehicle operations, traffic enforcement, and communication skills.
“We learn how to operate vehicles in the most strenuous and adverse conditions, so we’re virtually experts and can apply these principles on a simplified level to our students,” said Barrett. “We also know the traffic laws and regulations inside and out.”
911 Driving School aims to reduce the amount of accidents and traffic violations, but its primary goal is to ensure that each driver comes home safely every time they get behind the wheel.
“We know that parents want their kids to have the best possible chance to be successful drivers” said Barrett. “If we are able to teach kids to make good, informed decisions, we’ve done our job.”
Marysville 911 Driving School is running a grand opening promotion through May 31, 2011, offering a $100 discount off of class tuition. For more information, please visit http://www.911drivingschool.com or call (360) 658-0911.
