Supervising Teen Drivers
Our driving school professionals have years of experience supervising teen drivers in Douglas County, and we use our dual control, newer-model cars for our private behind-the-wheel training. However, we also understand how stressful it can be to be in the passenger seat as you teen takes the wheel! That’s one of the reasons why we offer a drivers education skills day, which allows you to put your teen behind the wheel on a closed course before or shortly after receiving their permit. Our skills day consists of four hours with the teen driving in a personal vehicle with a parent.
Parents play an integral role in helping train their teen to be the safest driver possible, and we’re here to help you along the way to helping your teen log those 50 required hours of behind-the-wheel practice! If you’d like more information about how you can support and instruct your teen, check out this resource from the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles, and contact Freedom Drivers Ed to learn more about our driving school!
