Our Parent class is a critical component of our program and meets National Standards. Parents play a critical role in the process of their child learning to drive. This class helps level expectations and is an opportunity for parents to learn how they can support their child throughout the process. It is mandatory if a student is receiving a waiver for the license test at the MVD. We have been running parent classes for years and the feedback is always extremely positive. Yes it is a 3-hour commitment, however, it is an investment in your child’s safety. We highly recommend this class for ALL of our parents no matter if your student is receiving a waiver or not. When parents take the time to do this class the entire experience for the student is much more effective.The program is split into 2 components. The first half of the program focuses on information regarding novice drivers. What parents need to be aware of and thinking about as they make decisions for their teen driver and the do's and don'ts of working with novice drivers. The second half focuses on effective communication while driving with your teen behind the wheel and tips and techniques for practicing with them. For example, how do you know when it is safe to practice on a freeway and much more.
