Hesitation. Panic. Fear. Those are some common feelings parents experience when their teen is of age to learn to drive. The idea of their “baby” driving is not only a confirmation of their child’s soon to be independence, but also the helplessness in keeping them safe. However, you can help your teen develop good driving habits by not only leading as an example and teaching them but also enrolling them in a driver’s education course.
Driver’s Education is not only a great opportunity for your teen to get a better understanding of the rules of the road, you may even have an opportunity to receive an insurance discount on the vehicle your teen drives. Some insurance companies offer discounts for teens who complete a driver’s education course.
Students who take Driver’s Ed will not only receive a basic understanding of driving, but they will also get more experience driving with a teacher, enabling them to be more prepared and confident on the road.
There are several options for students to take drivers’ education courses. Many of the high schools in the area offer driver’s education courses at a minimal cost. Williamson County Schools offer a class for $300.
Some students also need extra instruction or simply don’t have it in their school schedules to take the course. There are other local options available including:
