What is taught in the class?
Our driving school’s classes set a very strong foundation for understanding all drivers education topics. Our instructors teach above the state standard by providing students with real world challenges and scenarios. We also allow our student drivers to practice how to mentally process a variety of driving scenarios in group settings. Students leave our classroom feeling confident and knowledgeable. If you have any questions about our drivers education curriculum or would like to sign your teen up for a class, contact us today!
Class 9 (Skills Day) is actual behind the wheel training and is completed in a personal vehicle with a parent(s). Our Douglas County driving school’s expert instructors — all of whom have extensive driver training experience — teach the class and provide parents and teens the ability to safely and adequately begin drivers training. We have found over the years that to adequately train students to drive, we need to provide them with the ability to practice on a safe, closed course where we can lay the foundations for driving skills.
Even before receiving a permit, your student will be highly informed and road ready. Read more about what is taught during class 9 on our Skills Day page.
How are the classes taught?
Our classroom is taught through an active learning model. To increase retention and comprehension of material, students collaborate with their peers and drivers ed instructor through their student workbook.
How are the classes completed?
All of our classroom sessions are completed at the students pace and allow for flexible scheduling. Students must complete eight sessions, each three and a half hours long and complete two hours worth of homework. Class one must be taken first and class eight must be taken last. Classes two through seven may be taken out of order. There is no time limit on when the classes have to be completed and this provides much flexibility for busy students. Student’s can start classes as soon as 14 years, 6 months of age and thus these classes can be completed over many months period of time.
It’s refreshing to know that your student won’t be forced to finish Drivers Ed in 4 very long 8+ hour days. Our flexible classroom scheduling allows students to take the time needed to learn Drivers Ed – the key is not to rush through the curriculum, but to increase retention and comprehension of the material. Why? because your teen’s life depends on it!
We offer drivers ed classes on breaks and weekends during the school year throughout Douglas County. The schedule is listed above.
You can register for the location and class your student wants to attend for their first class, and then call our office if you’d like to adjust the schedule for classes two through eight.
