Gerry Bontrager has been teaching Defensive Driving in Texas for twenty-eight years and has taught over 40,000 students during this time. Gerry discusses driving tactics specific to Metroplex freeways in an entertaining, and often, humorous way. Interjected in the course material are interesting anecdotes, real-life experiences, newspaper cartoons, and hilarious video clips about driving. Our philosophy at Lakeside is that the student will learn more if learning is fun.
