Training for LIFE

Tips, Tricks and Links for Post Secondary Transition

It is finally done!!! Get Ready to Drive!

We were working overtime to get our first TRAINING FOR LIFE product ready for publication and sale and then the pandemic hit. It is now finished and ready for sale. At this time, it is only available by emailing Patricia Kauffman at We are working on a website and other marketing materials, but the pandemic put those plans were stalled, ugh.

But now it is finished and ready to go!

Get Ready to Drive!

Get Ready to Drive! is a 5 module hands-on curriculum that prepares students to take the Ohio written driving test. It is easily adapted to other states within the US.

The Get Ready to Drive! kit has everything you need to teach the prep course, including:

  • Course manual
  • USB drive with presentations for each module and printable files for tests, data collection, and handouts
  • Pre & Post-course tests and module tests
  • Data Collection forms
  • Student handouts
  • 285 high-quality simulation cards & flashcards
  • 36 road tiles
  • Signs & traffic lights that connect to the road tiles
  • Various small vehicles
  • Driving Consequences gameboard & pieces

The course was initially designed for students with various disabilities but is appropriate for all students that learn best with hands-on materials. Let's face it, that driver's manual is not really engaging reading material! Why not make it fun.

Big picture
The cost of the program is $599.00, with a discount for multiple sets purchased by the same organization. Shipping is determined by the shipping address, and you will only be charged actual costs. This is a one time cost; there are no subscriptions or additional materials needed except printing out tests and handouts.

We are always available by e-mail for questions and can provide virtual or in-person in-services about the program upon request.
