Top 3 Best Ways to Take Drivers Ed:
Home in Bed. Seriously, is there anywhere on Earth more comfortable than your own bed? Most people are able to pay attention best first thing in the morning. So wake up, pour yourself some orange juice, and climb back under the covers, and you’re ready to begin your course at your most attentive.
In a Coffee Shop. Some people thrive on having some sort of ambient noise, or distraction in the background. If that’s you, then taking your online driver education course in a coffee shop is the best way. Get a tasty beverage (tip the barista), get the WiFi password, pop in the earbuds, and learn to drive as the world hustles and bustles all around you.
In a Library. Are there too many distractions at home? Can’t keep your eyes off that cute barista? Head to the public library, where you’ll actually get in trouble for talking. This quiet environment forces you to pay attention to the lessons at hand, making you a better driver all around!
Top 3 Worst Ways to Take Drivers Ed:
Now that you know where and when you should be learning all about driving safely, here are the worst possible scenarios.
At the Movies. Sure, your date might appreciate your commitment to safety, but it’s gonna be distracting. You’re totally gonna miss the alien invasion on the big screen, and you’ll get popcorn butter all over your laptop.Verdict: $13 down the drain.
In the Bath. The single best thing about taking an online drivers ed course is the sheer convenience. You can take it in the comfort of your own home. Bundled up on the couch? Absolutely. In your bed? Sure, why not? But just because a nice warm bubble bath is also comfortable and relaxing doesn’t mean it’s a good idea for an online course.
While Driving. Online courses may be easier than reading a driver handbook, and they may offer you the chance to get the same (or in some cases, better) education that’s offered in a classroom, but instead of having to spend all day in a classroom, you can complete the course whenever it’s convenient for you. This means first thing in the morning, when you’re well-rested. It does not mean “while you’re practicing your behind the wheel hours!” Verdict: Distracted driving.
