​My Purpose...

     I am blessed to finally find my purpose in life.  At first this was a job for extra cash but over the years I have realized that God has put me in position where I can make a difference in this world.  In college I worked in some downtown Boise bars where I contracted and almost died of meningitis.  God spared me.  I did not know why.  In 2007 I took a job at Borah High School where I met a driver education teacher.  I never talked to the teacher.  I just happened to stay late at the school one evening and I asked him why he was still at the school.  God had put me in a job that introduced me to driver education.  There are many more "coincidences" that convince me that God had a purpose for me.  From my own driver education experiences when I was 17, to my first car, to delivering flowers for Flowerama, to driving a cab - it is evident God was guiding me to driver education.  I owe everything to Him.

My thoughts on driver training...

     I take driver training very seriously.  It breaks my heart to hear of anybody getting injured or dying in a preventable wreck.  At Ultra Safe we not only teach the basics and advanced defensive driving - we strive to change students perspective on life.  We want them to enjoy the journey, live life stress free (at least while driving), and be able to forgive others.  If they enjoy the journey they might not speed, tailgait, or text.  If they try to reduce their stress they might manage their time better and utilizes simple strategies taught in driver training.   And if they forgive others it will reduce the anxiety and anger that can build up and affect their driving.  Students will spend a good amount of time behind-the-wheel, why not make that time enjoyable.  Another method we use to change a student's personal driving culture is to push for students not to drive like other people - to take pride in safe driving - to know that their safe driving could save other people's lives.  When someone speeds by us in the car I usually say "I feel bad that that person's life is so fast, point A to point B only, not enjoying the beauty of this world".  Our approach to texting and driving is also simple...Look at driving as your personal time for yourself - not others.  It's a time to decompress.  It's a time to tell the world "for the next 15 minutes it's all about me...I don't need to immediately answer back to others...I am free to text when I want to".  We also look at driving as a serious, yet rewarding activity that can assist your life or destroy it.  We do not hold back on many emotional, heart-wrenching stories.  We want students to appreciate all the gifts they have received and understand that they can be taken away in the blink of an eye.  

My Resume...

     My name is Wes Hult and I've been teaching driver education for over 10 years.  I stumbled upon driver education when a fellow coworker with the Boise School District mentioned I could teach driver education since I have a teaching credential and a good driving record.  So I took a 4 credit NNU course on teaching driver education.  I worked for public driver education for 2 summers eventually becoming certified to teach private driver education.  I drove for Boise Schools public driver education for 2 more summers and 2 private driver education companies for 10-30 hours per week.  After 4 years I decided to devote my time to private driver education only.  I drove exclusively for a local company for the next 2 years.  But it wasn't long before I felt the pull to start my own company.  I felt all driving programs were inadequate for today's driving environment.  I started Ultra Safe in September 2015.  Since starting this journey over 10 years ago I have taught over 1000 students ranging from young teenagers, young adults, older adults, refugees from 3 different countries, to autistic & special population individuals.
