Driver’s Education—Part 2: Getting behind the wheel
Teaching your teenager to drive can be real eye-opener, for both of you! Understanding the key components of a training program as well as the standards for teaching driver’s education can significantly improve the teaching and learning experience for you and your child. Join Steve as he takes you through the step-by-step process of teaching a young mind the principles of driving safely. Not only will he share what’s changed in the realm of driver’s education over the last 10 to 20 years, but he’ll also share tips for keeping it rigorous and for staying calm and in control while instructing your child behind the wheel (with or without the option of a second brake).
