Why Take Driver's Ed? - Your mom might be a good driver, but she might not be the best one to teach you. Many states require new drivers to first obtain a learner's permit and then to take a state-certified driver's education course. Even when it is not mandatory, such courses are often more comprehensive and efficient than learning on your own or from a biased family member.
Driving schools do their research - they know exactly what the state expects of you in the written and driving tests. That means they know the best ways to prepare you including teaching you everything from the basics of traffic laws and traffic signs to fundamental safety tips that, even if they're not on the exam, will undoubtedly make you a better driver.
Teaching the Importance of safety in addition to modeling good driving etiquette and providing experienced instruction, driving schools reinforce the best practices - such as distraction-free driving tips - to keep all of us alert and safe on the roads.
Your local driving instruction courses may provide additional information specific to your area, such as tips on: Freeway driving, inclement weather, navigating busy urban streets. Driving schools often offer practice tests aimed at your state's specific driver education requirements, giving you the inside scoop at what is expected.
You can even find these practice tests online, on your state's DMV Web site, in your driver handbook, or from third-party companies. Also, some states will even waive portions of your license or driving exam when you present a waiver from your driving instructor showing that you have completed a certain number of training hours. Another benefit that will be a bigger interest to parents, most insurance companies/agencies will offer at least a 10% discount on their premiums with a certificate from a completed Drivers Education course. - Geneva Scroggy,
