Most subjects seem pretty simple when you get right down to it. You remember doing them in school, you remember how to go about presenting a subject. Driver’s education is a bit different. It is the one subject that you can’t possibly do at home and have your student get their driving permit or license. Luckily there are many options available to you. You can choose a local driving school or you can have your student do all of their course work through online studies. There are many affordable options online and your student can usually work at their own pace. Most of these online curriculum options will meet the needs of your state standards and requirements so that the student can obtain a learner’s permit.
Even for public schools and private schools these programs are necessary due to funding cuts that have affected all schools. These programs are the first to be cut back and so parents are having to find options for their high school students.
Here are just a few of your options for online driver’s education curriculum:
DriversEd.com – These state approved programs are ready for you to complete at your own pace. The cost is about $300 for the courses and they are all online for your convenience. This includes your online curriculum, hours of observed driving time and several hours of driver instructor driving time.
TeenDrivingCourse.com – This site offers online state approved driver’s education curriculum. For some states the whole driver’s education package is available for around $75. This package has the course work, test preparation, a DVD and more.
DriversEdDirect.com – These all inclusive web site offers online driver’s education curriculum, “behind the wheel” instruction, practice tests to help you succeed and interactive DVD training. While the product seems wonderful the pricing on anything more than the DVD seems vague. Perhaps you know at final checkout what the prices are. If your student is great with interactive curriculum it may be worth finding more out.
