Automobile accidents are the leading cause of death among teens. The freedom afforded to teens by access to cars is an important part of the maturation process, but safety is absolutely imperative. There is always so much at stake whenever anyone gets behind the wheel, let alone a teenage driver. Driving schools introduce teens to the serious realities of driving and what can happen at any given moment. They teach teens how to focus on all the little things we must remember while driving. Picking the right school is important, so here are some things to consider:
Friends and neighbors with older children have gone through this process before. Ask them about their experiences with the schools they chose and compare their answers against each other. Why did they choose that school? What was their child’s experience? Are they happy with the school’s curriculum and attention to detail? Is the material in classroom sessions integrated with driving sessions to provide a cohesive and sensible plan?
Call & Visit
Calling and visiting potential driving schools is crucial, as you can see firsthand how a classroom will operate. Start with the basics- is it clean? Is it orderly? Is there a desk for every student and will everyone have a clear view of the educational materials from where they sit? Every question, no matter how small, is of the utmost importance when it comes to educating new drivers.
