Classroom Driver Education
Certificated instructors interact with students, using guest speakers and contemporary audio/visual aids. Our program uses the brand new version of "License to Drive," including the text and videotapes.
We truly believe that classroom driver education is the most important class your child will ever take. Together we can make a difference in what they learn and how well they learn it. The experts will tell you that the biggest advantage of classroom driver education is that students interact with other students and learn from a qualified professional and not a computer screen. It will also help when they take get their learners permit and take driver training.
