Teen Driver Education - Can You Count on the High School to Properly Train Your Teen for the Road?
By Tom Wiecek, President of the Society of Family Insurance Specialists
It is recommended by driving instruction experts that every teen should have 100 hours of supervised time behind the wheel. However, in driver education classes provided by the high schools and even most private driving schools, supervised driving time is limited to just a few short hours.
It understandable that with so many young drivers to train that these schools just aren't capable of providing the time required to give a teen the experience needed to handle the dangers on the road. That is where you must come in.
