Parents Guide to Drivers Ed in Georgia
Being a responsible driver starts with getting the proper Georgia drivers education – and a good education begins with the right tools and a goal of success.
At I Drive Safely, we are constantly looking for new and better ways to teach your teen the essential driving skills they need. Our expert designers and professional driving instructors have created a comprehensive Georgia drivers ed course that will help your teen learn and grow into an independent driver.
The Advantage of Taking Drivers Ed Online
Experts the world over agree that online courses are better at teaching students than a standard classroom course. Our online Joshua's Law drivers ed course is engaging and interactive – instead of spending hours reading through a textbook, your child will participate in their learning process, increasing their memory retention as they do so.
With our online Georgia drivers ed course, your teen can:
- Study whenever they find the time
- Take as many breaks as they need, whenever they need them
- Set a pace that is perfect for their learning style
- Work from any computer – at home, at school, at the library, wherever!
What to Expect from Our Georgia Approved Course
Our Georgia DDS-approved Joshua's Law course contains all of the required lessons for your teen to earn their Georgia learners permit – you can rest assured that your teen will learn all of the fundamentals to become a safe, responsible driver.
The course uses single-subject chapters, multiple-choice quizzes, videos, animations, graphics, audio clips, and other tools to teach each lesson. Your child will be required to pass a final exam, after which they will be eligible to receive their learner's permit from the DDS.
Save on Your Georgia Auto Insurance
Did you know that your teen's Joshua's Law course can help you save on your auto insurance, and afford you tax benefits? When you submit proof of your child's enrollment in a state-approved Joshua's Law drivers ed course, you can earn a discount on your premium for all drivers! You are also able to earn a $150 tax credit when your teen successfully completes their Georgia drivers education course. Make sure you keep their certificate of completion in a safe place for when tax time rolls around!
Parent-Teen Driving Contract
Another helpful resource we offer is the parent-teen driving contract. Rules exist for a reason – especially when it comes to a new driver using your car for the first time! Avoid the hassles and frustrations of fights and misunderstandings by using this helpful contract. It’s free, downloadable, and fully editable, and it allows you and your teen to open a dialogue about driving expectations. Whether it's setting passenger limitations, or enforcing a curfew, you can both decide what's important to each of you.
Some of the items included in the contract are:
- Drinking and driving
- What happens in the event of a car accident
- Who is allowed to be in the car when your teen is driving
- Cell phone use while driving
You and your son or daughter should sit down and work on the contract together; it’s intended is to make both of you feel more at ease with your teen's driving situation, and to keep communication clear between everyone.
