Why Take Driver's Education?

Every year 1 out of every 9 licensed drivers will have a collision. In a collaborative effort to ensure that new drivers are well educated and well prepared, educators, students and parents are supporting the step by step experience building process in becoming safe drivers. One step of that process is driver education.

 

In addition to basic driving skills, students discuss the effects of alcohol and drugs on drivers, distractions while driving, assessing and managing driving risk and consequences of choices you make as a driver and passenger.

All these skills and knowledge are reinforced with the actual driving time, observations and use of simulators.  Driver education is not just the business of driving a car, but how to be a safe and responsible driver that is capable of making life saving decisions.

Joshua's Law

In 2005 the General Assembly passed Senate 226 also known as Joshua's Law.  Effective January 1, 2007 all 16 year olds that apply for a class D license must complete an approved driver education course and 40 hours of supervised driving with 6 of those hours at night.

If this requirement is not met, the student must wait until he or she is 17 years old.

The new driving laws encourage parents to take an active role in their children's driver education.

The Gwinnett programs include:
30 hours of classroom instruction
6 hours of driving time
6 hours of observation
During the twelve hours of driving and observation, the instructor documents exactly the experience each student receives on various highways, interstate, parking etc.
