On-Road Driving Instruction
Our on-road instruction is designed to meet specific objectives and benchmarks including navigating freeways, traffic circles/roundabouts and one way streets. An instructor works 1:1 with a student at their individual skill level and progresses accordingly. DrivingMBA does not offer on-road instruction as a stand alone program. It is our firm belief that the combination of simulation and on-road experience develops better and safer drivers. An integral part of our on-road program is the student and parent debrief. This allows the instructor to speak with both the student and parent about student progress and areas that still need work. We offer many options for on-road instruction. Our most popular program is our 8 hour program which both includes a Safe Driver Evaluation.
DrivingMBA has a comprehensive Safe Driver Evaluation where we evaluate in 10 specific categories. It is our practice to review the evaluation with both the student and the parent the very first time we take a student on-road so that they understand the requirements to pass our test. Our commitment to families is we will not put teens on the road unless we are reasonably assured they are prepared for the challenges of negotiating today’s complex driving environments. Since October 22, 2012 we are using the last lesson as our Safe Driver Evaluation, and provide the student and parent feedback on a students readiness for a license.
We also offer a Busy Parent package for those parents who simply do not have the time to practice with their teenager. It is imperative that teens have a minimum of 30 hours of practice before receiving their license, our recommendation is 100 hours. Our Busy Parent package is available with 30 or 50 hours of on-road instruction.
