Instructor Biography

Adam Newbloom, Owner & Lead Instructor at the Enhanced Driving Institute

I was a Police Officer for 7 years. During this time I learned a lot about driving behavior, distraction and inexperience that lead to hundreds of accidents. I resigned in 2006 to work toward my MBA and find a better solution to the problem of unsafe driving. In 2009 I graduated with my master's degree and built the Enhanced Driving Institute from the ground up. Within three years we were the top driving school in SE Minnesota and now provide training for teen drivers, senior citizen driving assessments, defensive driving courses as well as our winter driving course. We teach over 1000 students a year and our referral rate is over 70%.

I designed this online course after many requested an online option. This course is an impressive blend of my passion for road safety and excellent tips on how to build your confidence when the roads are slick.
