Driver Education Summit Announced for October


Houston, Texas, September 4, 2009 - The Association for Collision-Free Driving (ACFD) announces its annual Income Explosion Summit to be held at The Woodlands, Texas on October 22-24, 2009. Mr. Patrick Barrett, director of ACFD, said “This event attracts the ‘best of the best’ in the driver education industry. We have school owners for all over the United States including Texas, California, Maine, Connecticut, North Dakota, and Minnesota scheduled to attend the event. Mr. Barret also stated “We’ve had inquiries from Mexico and as far away as New Zealand regarding the event.”

This event is also open to anyone interested in owning or operating a driving school in the United Sates. Interested individuals and companies can register on the ACFD website at or call 1-800-792-5339.

With high schools tightening their budgets and staying out of the driver education business, the private sector has shown steady growth and produced stable business even in this economy. The secrets to producing collision-free drivers have only been implemented by a handful of elite driver training businesses in this country.

The Association for Collision-Free Drivers (ACFD) fosters and promotes the expansion of these concepts of life-saving techniques of collision-free driving through events such as the Income Explosion Summit. This particular event focuses on the business aspect in the driver education field. The ACFD also provides instructor training and development courses to ensure that the customer receives the best possible instruction in the techniques of collision-free driving.

The average age of people in the driver training business was reported by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) as being 52 years old in the state of Texas. There is a significant opportunity for early retirees and young people with sales and teaching backgrounds to earn a good living and/or operate their own business.

Mr. Barrett, founder of Driver Ed in a Box®,, has been in the driver training industry since 1974. He is a nationally recognized expert in producing safe drivers. Mr. Barrett is the author of numerous articles and books including the popular Driver Ed in a Box® course which is an at-home driver education course considered to be the ultimate in parent taught driver education. Mr. Barrett has also served at President of the North American Professional Driver Education Association.

What can be done to make teens safe drivers?

A Texas study demonstrates that certain teen drivers have fewer crashes. According to the Texas study, these teens use the course called Driver Ed in a Box®. Mr. Barrett states “Parents who follow the Driver Ed in a Box® program provide nine months to a year of extended supervised training to teach their teen to drive. And fortunately, our product walks you through the complete process step by step.”

According to Mr. Barrett, “A review of the driving records of the graduates of our parent-taught driver education course, Driver Ed in a Box®, shows that our 16 year old graduates have a collision rate of only 1.7%. Studies show that 16 year old drivers in the state of Texas using other methods of driver education have a collision rate of 11.4%.” This study can be viewed at
