When Safety Matters, Proper Education is Crucial
Driving is one of the major milestones of a young person’s life. For parents, however,
it is one of the scariest. Car accidents are the number one cause of death in teenagers.
In 2009, 5,148 drivers, or 11% of car crash victims, were 15-20 years old according
to the NHTSA.
Studies show that young people are very receptive to online learning, as reported
by a recent CBS News study that found the online student population is growing by
an amazing 30% per year! Traditional driving schools have attempted to convince
parents that online driver education does not work. This is not true. Please read
about the Common Myths about online driver education.
- Myth #1:
Online driver education courses are not as effective as classroom-based courses.

Myth: Online driver education courses are not as effective as classroom-based courses.
Fact: Numerous studies show that online learning is just as effective,
if not more so, than traditional instructor-led classes. In fact, the California
DMV published a report in 2003 that compared the effectiveness of home-study driver
education courses and classroom instruction. They found no added benefit for attending
a classroom versus taking a driver education course online. The use of engaging
and interactive content in our courses, such as video games, drills, quizzes, and
instructional videos, helps to reinforce key lesson topics and is what sets DriverEdToGo
apart from both our online and classroom competitors.
- Myth #2:
If teens have questions while taking an online course, nobody is there to help.

Fact: Students can get assistance through our online chat or by
calling our 1-800 number 7 days a week. For each state where we offer an approved
course, we also have a licensed driver education instructor on-call for any questions
that students may have about driving laws or
any of our online course content.

Myth: Kids don't have to pay attention during an online course.
Fact: Designed by driving safety experts and e-Learning specialists
with over 20 years of experience, our
driver education courses are the finest and most comprehensive on the market. Each
of our courses has
been thoroughly tested by state agencies to make sure they cover every single topic
that is important and
necessary to the driving task. Safeguards such as lesson quizzes and a final examination
at the end of the
course ensure that students pay attention
during the course.
- Myth #4:
You pay less for an online course because it's not as good as a live course.
Get the Fact >
Myth: The reason you pay less for an online course is because it's not as good as
the real thing.
Fact: The old adage that the more you pay the better the product
is simply false. The fact is, DriverEdToGo enrolls so many students that we can
afford to offer our courses at much lower prices than our online competitors and
far less than classroom providers. Our course is fully DMV-approved, just like a
classroom course, so there is no need pay up to 5 times more money for the same
certificate of completion from another company.
