Driving school: Chicago’s Rusty’s driving practice gets the attention of some experts
A Chicago-based driving school has been featured on “America’s Got Talent” as the competition heats up for the $1.5 million winner of the $5 million driving school prize.
“The competition is tough, so we wanted to take a step back and really reflect on what we were trying to do here,” Rusty’s owner and head instructor Brian Cone told WGN-TV.
“What we’re trying to achieve here is get the students to take their first steps into driving.”
We really wanted to give them the opportunity to learn about what it is that driving actually entails,” he said.
Rusty’s is the largest driving school in the country, with more than 5,000 students in its facility.
Rustie’s Driving School was also featured in the new episode of “America and Me.”
Rusty Cone, owner of Rusty’s Driving Schools in Chicago, said his goal was to have the students take the “first steps” into driving as soon as possible.”
When you get to the point where you’re able to put the car in gear, then you have that opportunity to get the kids to actually take it on the road,” he told WGCL-TV on Wednesday.
Rusties driving school was featured in a recent episode of the show.
Cone said his students had already taken a test before going to drive the Rusty’s vehicle.
Rustys instructors were also able to give feedback on how the students were taking the course, which was “extremely helpful,” Cone said.
They’re super supportive. “
The students have been great.
They’re super supportive.
They want to know what they’re doing and how to do it, and that’s really helpful.”
