Ok, think about this: When you were of age to learn how to drive or get your first car, what car fundamentals did you learn? Did you pick up the information from a parent, the internet, and friends, or were you actually guided on how to be a responsible car owner?
Today, instead of hoping that your teen or young adult gets enough information to become responsible car owners, you can just sign them up for this class! This class is designed for young people, ages 15 to 24, who are just learning to drive, considering buying their first car, or just want to get all the fundamental car knowledge they didn’t have when they started driving.
Sunday – 90 mins.:
Owners manual overview
Dash lights, and other things to pay attention to and listen for when you drive
When should you tow your car instead of driving
What car maintenance should you know how to do yourself?
How do you find a mechanic?
When (and how) to say no in a mechanic shop
Car buying fundamental know-how (not a full car buying seminar, just covering the very very basics everyone should know)
What is the cost?
Class is sliding scale $39 to $159 payable via PayPal. This is an effort to accommodate a range of budgets and needs. For more information about the sliding scale model and suggestions for what you should pay, see the Frequently Asked Questions page.
I also have a scholarship fund for folks that can’t afford to take this class. Priority goes to people of color, trans people, and folks with disabilities. If you are in need of a scholarship, please email me.
When and where will this class be held?
This is an online class that is held in a private Facebook group at 2PM EST. I will go live and discuss and teach. Participants will be able to ask questions live. You’ll even be able to go back and re-watch the recorded class videos for up to a month from when the class is offered.
