Classroom Drivers Ed FAQ
Traditional classroom drivers education vs. Online drivers education- which is better?
Although our driving school offers both classroom drivers education and an on-line drivers education for those student whose schedule does not permit for taking of the traditional classroom driver education, it needs to be understood that attitudes affecting the safe operation of motor vehicles in addition to defensive driving methods and its applications are the most critical elements in preparing the student drivers for a life time of safe driving. Learning the rules of the road is only a small part of any comprehensive and competent driver’s education course. That knowledge alone provides little in terms of safety, no more than memorizing the alphabet teaches you how to write a novel. On-line courses are limited to mere memorization of the rules and certain other factoids and are deficient in terms of practical and in context defensive driving knowledge imparted by a live professional discussing, explaining and sharing the nuances of defensive driving. This fact alone makes on-line drivers education an inferior environment for the delivery of drivers education and not equal in quality to the traditional classroom taught by a competent knowledgeable teachers.
