Parents of teens in California will be exited to learn that California now allows teens to take their driver education online. Whether you live in the heart of the hustle and bustle of California or in a rural community, taking a California driver education course online has many benefits for both teens and parents.
In California, teens can begin taking an online driver education course at age 15. The state requires you be at least 15½ in order to apply for your learners permit. The first step is to enroll in a state approved California driver education course. The first six hours of the course teaches the student important information about rules of the road, California specific driving laws and general driving safety. Once you've completed this portion and reached age 15½, you can apply for your learners permit. You'll continue the course, online, in the comfort of your home at your own pace. Parents will assist their teen with behind the wheel driving lessons.
California Drivers Ed
The benefits of taking a California drivers ed course online are, that the student has the freedom to take the course in their own time. Traditional drivers ed courses require the parent to take off from work every day to get their teen to class. It's a stressful time and the course is rushed. By taking driver education online, the student doesn't have classroom instructions. The parent can assist their teen with their driving practice in the evenings when they get off work and on the weekends. It gives the parent control over when they feel their teens is ready to drive.
