How to choose a driving school
You may have co-workers, friends or relatives that have already gone through the process and can provide you with feedback that would help you. Friends of your own son or daughter may be a good resource for information. But talk to the parents. What a teen looks for in a school and what a parent looks for aren’t always in sync.
There are a couple of key things to look for:
- Someone who wants you to be involved and wants to meet you and explain the program prior to beginning the training.
- A driving school that will provide feedback and guidance to you after each in-car lesson.
- A driving school that can tell you where training will take place so you know that your child will get a variety of driving areas with graduating levels of difficulty; from residential, to streets that are more complex and include a variety of traffic conditions.
- A school that has their total focus on your son or daughter’s instruction while he/she is in the car. Their lesson route is not contingent on the need to pick up and drop off another student before or after your child’s lesson.
- Ideally the lessons will be no longer than one hour in length since it is difficult for a new driver to continue learning new skills in a longer session.
