Driver’s Education designed with you in mind

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.

Course Syllabus

Course Duration

The online course is self-timed and students may start-and-stop the course as needed. Our software will track the student's progress so that when they log-out they can log in later and pick up exactly where they left off in the course.

Final Exam

The final exam consists of 40 multiple choice questions and may be taken as many times as necessary until the student has scored 85% (34 out of 40 questions correct) or better.


Once a student has completed the course, we will send them official DMV form DL400c. This form must be presented at a DMV in order to apply for a learner's permit and before a student may enroll with a "behind-the-wheel" driving school to learn how to drive a car.
