When teens are first learning to drive, they are highly receptive to important messages about the dangers of unsafe driving and driving while intoxicated. That is why it is so important for parents to get involved at this initial stage to ensure proper and thorough education to help set ground rules and instill good driving habits, as their teen takes on the responsibility of operating a motor vehicle.
The course takes a minimum of 24 hours to complete. Students may spend a maximum of 2-hours per day taking the course, which means it will take a minimum of 12 days to complete the course.
The final exam consists of 50 questions. The student must correctly answer 38 (or 75%) of the questions correctly in 3 or fewer attempts in order to pass the course.
There are two certificates for this course:
Certificate of Enrollment - which is sent to the student after he or she completes the first 2 hours of the course and must be presented at a driving school in order to begin in-car training;
Certificate of Completion - which is sent to the student after completing the entire course and must be presented at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles in order to apply for a learner's permit.
