Driver’s education is an important consideration for many teens who are edging closer to that magical time when they become licensed drivers. However, before all the unbridled freedom and power of driving become yours, there are a few essential things you need to know about driver’s education.

Preparing Drivers

Driver’s education is designed to prepare both young and adult drivers that are interested in getting their driving license. The goal is to make sure that the rules of the road, along with how to stay safe when behind the wheel, are understood before a new driver gets behind the wheel to drive on his or her own.

All Courses Are Not Equal

When choosing a driver’s education course, it’s important that you ensure it is approved by your state. The increasing number of courses available, especially those that are online, could result in wasted time and money if your state does not recognize it. Additionally, you should verify that the instructor teaching the course is licensed to do so. Generally, the course should offer 45 hours of instruction in the classroom, followed by a minimum of 8 hours training behind the wheel.

The Course Isn’t Enough

While driver’s education is designed to help soon-to-be drivers gain the knowledge they need for safety and following road rules, the learning should not stop there. In order to make sure the new driver is comfortable behind the wheel after receiving his or her permit, additional drive time with parents or other licensed drivers is a must. This will expose the driver to more situations that may occur on the road, and the experienced driver will be right there to help him or her through the most difficult ones.

Requirements Vary for Each Course

Whether through a high school, the state or a standalone facility, driver’s education courses have different requirements. While some accept students at 15, others require students to be 16 years old. Some also have requirements concerning cost and how long the course will take.

State Requirements

You will also need to verify the driver’s education requirements for the state in which you live. There are strict rules as to whether the course is required in order to get a license, the eligibility and age requirements and where the course must be taken.

Andrew has come to fix my car on two occasions and both times he was on time for the appointment, professional , and extremely thorough in his examination of my car and diagnosis. He is honest and straightforward as to what my vehicle actually needs done immediately, and what I can hold off on for awhile. Money can be tight sometimes, so I do appreciate that. I highly recommend this mechanic!
