Driver Education Program

Every new driver needs a basic foundation of knowledge and skills to be able to operate safely on the road. Quality driver education can help teens develop safe driving attitudes, the ability to recognize and respond to hazards, and a solid grasp on the rules of the road.

Having a professional train your teen as a driver can also relieve some family stress. Teens may feel pressure or judgment under the scrutiny of a safety-conscious parent—and parents can sometimes find it challenging to stay calm and objective when their child is behind the wheel.

What should you look for in a driver education program?

The key is finding a driving school that meets your needs. Always choose quality over convenience—the extra investment of effort will pay off for the rest of your teen’s life as a driver.

Ideally, a driver education program or school should:

  • Offer reasonable student-teacher ratios
  • Belong to a professional association
  • Require instructors to continuously train and upgrade their skills
  • Encourage parental involvement
  • Be open to and proactive about resolving complaints

Did you know that some driver education courses will even give you high school credits, help you earn your full licence sooner or lower your insurance costs?
