Boys and Girls clubs learn driving from SWERVE

SWERVE Driver Training was selected by Boys and Girls Clubs of King County to teach safe driving skills to more than 100 club workers who drive 600 children to and from summer programs occurring through August.

Federal Way’s Boys and Girls Club is one of 12 chapters that participated in the training.

Redmond-based SWERVE instructors taught skid control, cornering techniques and and how to react to road hazards, distractions and changes in road and weather conditions.

SWERVE’s training combines “real-life driving experiences with professional coaching and instant feedback,” said Quincy Robertson, program services and training director for Boys and Girls Clubs of King County

Fred Wright, chief executive officer of SWERVE, said club drivers are “very sensitive to the valuable cargo they’re entrusted with on a daily basis and totally dedicated to transporting the kids safely.”    

Funding for the club’s driver training was through a grant from Safeco.

SWERVE is a division of The Driver Training Group.  More information is available at
