The purpose of driver education is to help develop the knowledge, attitudes, habits, and skills necessary for the safe operation of motor vehicles.
Drive Fit believes in teaching students safe driving habits to ensure safe roads for those who travel in our state. Our instructors are committed to high-quality education in preparing youthful drivers for the road. The curriculum used at Drive Fit addresses concepts in a pro-active way.
Through a 30-hour online course requirement, students learn concepts and skills which help them to be safe drivers, including:
Understanding the rules of the road, including “Driving Friendly” and State Handbook Laws. Instruction on the effect of alcohol, drugs, emotions and road rage, plus the dangers of cell phones and texting while driving. Understanding “Sharing the Road” with others, considering such concerns as construction zones, railroad crossings, and pedestrians/school zones, and bicycle safety.
