Learn to Drive and Do it Safely
Drive Safe and Well!
As a mother of a teenager I am concerned about making sure that she has the right tools and foundational education in order to drive safely. I wanted a course that would not only educate my daughter on the best driving techniques but one that was recommended by someone I knew. Well, I had to do some research.
I was looking for an educational course that was considered the authority in the arena of learning how to drive. It had to be an innovative course that is state-approved and that offered an online driver course as well as a traffic school. It needed to have a reputation for being not only fun, but convenient and easy for anyone to follow.
As a parent, I wanted a course that offered an approved online course to help beginner driver’s to earn their license. What I found is that many online driver education courses now offer high-quality videos and 3-D case studies to make the experience not only interestingly fun but simple to master. The courses are accessible via the internet, which means that the student can take the courses using their computer, table or mobile device which allows for the student to set their own schedule when going through the course.
In Georgia, the Joshua Law requires that a teen driver must meet the requirements to obtain a Class D Georgia driver’s license. The law was named after Joshua Brown, who lost his life in an accident in 2003. Joshua’s parents rallied with legislators in an effort to put stronger driver training laws into effect for our teens. The end result was a law that makes teens get more driving experience before obtaining a license.
In the end, I chose to go with DriversED because they have a reputation for being an icon in the industry because of their in-car driving lessons. Their instructors are experienced, professionals that are certified to teach safety techniques, driving defensively, vehicular control, and various other important information needed to help make sure a new driver is prepared for their driving experience. The instructor picks you up and drops you off from home, school or work for free. Not to mention, that it doesn’t hurt that the vehicle of choice for their lessons is a BMW Mini considered one of the safest cars to drive.
When making your choice, here are some things to consider:
The reputation of the company.
The certification process of their drivers.
Does the educational process include both on-line and in-car training?
Is the cost of the course reasonable?
Will they tailor their lessons to suit your needs and style of learning?
Can the course be used as High School credit for your teen?
Are they RSEA and DSAA accredited courses?
There are several online and in-car driver's education courses available. Here are just a few:
