We have had students from every major high school in California enroll in our course because we can offer it today while your local high school may make you wait until next semester.

Note to Parents: We encourage you to take an active part in your child's drivers ed course. Talk about driving laws, traffic signs and traffic safety while they are riding in the car with you. Give them real world examples of what they are reading about. Check over their worksheets and point out any mistakes. The more they learn now, the safer they will be when they start driving.

We truly believe that driver education is the most important class your child will ever take. You can make a difference in what they learn and how well they learn it. The the experts will tell you that the biggest advantage of home study driver education is that you can be involved and help them learn. It will also help when they take get their learners permit and take driver training.

An essay by one of our students:

Driver Education Online

The time that you have been waiting for all these years has finally come. You just turned 15_ and can’t wait to start driving your parent’s car around. The first thing that you need to do is get your learner’s permit. You won’t be able to drive without an adult in the car, but it will allow you to practice and develop the skills necessary to drive a car. The government department that handles all licenses and registration is the Department of Motor Vehicles or the DMV, as it is better known. The DMV requires everyone who is applying for a license to pass two tests, one is a multiple choice written exam and the other is a driving test. Here are the steps that you need to take to prepare for the tests and get your license.

Driver’s Ed Online

Even if you don’t need this class to prepare you for the written exam, the DMV requires that you pass it, so sign up and do it. The easiest route to taking this course is probably online, though you may find it more beneficial to do it at your high school. If a classroom environment is what you like then do it at the high school or with a local agency. Otherwise, online is definitely the way to go and is almost guaranteed to be the cheapest. Here are a few tips. Even if you are exceptionally bright, don’t blow off this class. Study and learn the material and all the effort that you put in will pay off. You need to know it all anyway if you want to drive safely on the road. Once you have this test out of the way, the next thing you need to do is get into a driver’s training program.

Driver’s Training

The day that you start driver’s training, your provisional permit will become valid and you can drive a car as long as a licensed adult who is at least 25 years old is in the seat beside you. Driver’s training will teach you how to drive a car and what you need to know to pass the driving test. In driver’s training, an instructor will work to teach you everything you need to know but the best way to learn is to drive around with your parents or a friend of your parents. The more that you drive, the more comfortable and confident you will become. Once you finish this course, you are almost at the end.

California Driver’s License

You need to have had your permit for at least six months and completed fifty hours of supervised driving, ten of which must be at night. You should be sixteen by now, so the only thing left that you need to do is the road test. Get an appointment with the nearest DMV office and go do it. If you have been driving consistently for the last couple months it shouldn’t be any problem at all. Pass the test and you are finished. There are a few small restrictions until you are 18 years old, but you are now a licensed driver.
