Parents Guide to Virginia Drivers Education
As a parent, you can't help but be concerned about your child's education – especially when it comes to drivers ed in Virginia. Are they truly learning the skills they need to be safe on the road? Will they understand the huge responsibility that comes with the privilege of driving? Is their Virginia drivers ed course teaching them in a way that will help them absorb and remember these skills for life?
I Drive Safely aims to answer each one of your questions with a resounding "yes!" Our drivers ed course employs specific teaching tools that have been proven to help your child learn more efficiently. Each lesson targets a single essential topic that your child needs to master before they ever get behind the wheel. And with your help and encouragement, they will flourish into the responsible Virginia driver that you know they can be.
Let Them Learn How They Choose
When your teen sits for hours in a classroom, listening to a lecture and reading from a textbook, they aren't actively engaging with their education. They lose focus, and become distracted by other students in the classroom with them. And, most importantly, they miss crucial information that could potentially save their life one day.
Our online Virginia drivers ed course is designed to combat these issues. With an online course, your child can study in a comfortable and relaxing environment, utilizing interactive technology to learn the topics at hand. Our course caters to their individual needs, instead of placing them into a generic box of general learning.
Your Teen Will Be Able To:
- Study whenever and wherever is convenient
- Learn faster and remember longer
- Study at the pace that works for them
- Engage with the material through videos, animations, graphics and more
How the Course Teaches
Instead of teaching through textbooks, our online Virginia drivers ed course uses a proven combination of graphics, interactive multimedia, and text lessons to keep your teen’s attention. Each unit focuses on one specific topic, including:
- Defensive driving techniques
- Virginia traffic law, signals, and road signs
- Road distractions and hazards
- Essential vehicle maintenance
Your teen will review each topic with multiple-choice quizzes that they can retake as many times as they choose – they can use them as a study guide for the permit exam!
Parent-Teen Driving Contract
As an added bonus, we've included a fully-editable parent-teen driving contract with your Virginia drivers education course. This contract gives you and your teen the opportunity to set agreed-upon ground rules once they have full driving privileges (and access to the family car!). It's important for everybody to be on the same page with rules and consequences, and for everyone to be accountable for their own actions and reactions in regard to these rules. Download and create a personalized contract for your family today!
Just a few of the topics covered in the contract are:
- When/where your teen is allowed to drive
- Rules about passengers in the car
- Use of cell phones while in the car
- Driving in poor weather/road conditions
