The Aapex program consists of 40 hours of training — 20 hours in-class, 10 hours behind the wheel, and 10 hours homelinks. During the hours of in-class instruction and 10 hours of private one-on-one in-car instruction, our emphasis is on collision prevention. We believe that there are no such thing as "accidents", the vast majority of so called "accidents" are predictable and preventable.
Most drivers have never had effective driver training. They lack education in defensive driving, risk evaluation maneuvers and head-on or rear-end crash avoidance. Since "accidents" can be predicted, we teach how to look, predict and prevent effectively. There are no short cuts when it comes to driver safety; and that's what we teach all our students.
