5 reasons to book Driver’s Ed classes for Summer 2024 NOW

Even if you’re not much of a planner, here are five reasons why you should book Driver’s Ed classes for summer 2024 NOW. If your teen wants that coveted campus parking pass when school starts, it’s important to start early to get all the DDS requirements completed on time. However, there are four more compelling reasons to book Driver’s Ed classes for summer 2024 now. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did!

Reason #1: Take Driver’s Ed during early summer to finish those in-car lessons before school starts

Just like accountants are crazy busy during tax season, Drive Smart Georgia gets super busy in the summer months. That’s because students and parents prefer to focus on Driver’s Ed when school is not in session and students are not swamped with tests, projects, after school activities, and sports. To say demand for our services soars in the summer is an understatement.

Where to start to book Driver’s Ed for Summer 2024

Joshua’s Law in Georgia requires that all 16- and 17-year-olds must complete a 30-hour DDS-approved Driver’s Ed class, plus a minimum of 40 hours of supervised driving experience with at least six hours of night driving. All 16- and 17-year-old applicants must pass the road skills test with a minimum score of 75.

Drive Smart Georgia offers the required 30-hour class with these options for students:

Option #1: In-person Driver’s Ed classes

Because teens retain more information when they are engaged in hands-on Driver’s Ed activities, Drive Smart Georgia recommends our classroom packages. Our high-energy, on-site program includes learning games, an outdoor activity with “drunk goggles,” and small group participation projects.

Option #2: Zoom Driver’s Ed Classes

While most students benefit from an in-person class, some are perfectly suited to learn in a Zoom class with a real teacher in real time. The students can also interact with other students, making a Zoom Driver’s Ed class a good option for teens who want to learn from the comfort of their own home.

Option #3: Book an online program

Some teens need even more flexibility. Our online program lets students start and stop the online Drivers Ed program at their convenience. We hand selected the best and most engaging course in the country for those busy teens who need a convenient alternative to our classroom program.

Benefits of all the three options above

All of our in-person or Zoom Driver’s Ed classes for summer 2024, and our online program include 6 hours of in-car driving lessons. One of them even includes a convenient on-site Road Test to avoid the long lines and chaos at the DDS.

Reason #2: Score that coveted parking pass before school starts

If your teen wants to get their Georgia driver’s license before the first day of school, make sure they have enough time to complete the Driver’s Ed course, their in-car driving lessons, and the road test.

Drive Smart Georgia suggests waiting 7 days between driving lessons. That’s because students need time to work on and perfect the skills they learned from their instructor.

Our cars run from 7 am until 10 pm, but it may be a bit more difficult to book a lesson during the busy summer months. That’s why it’s important to book now to take summer 2024 Driver’s Ed classes in late May or June.

By doing so, your teen will have plenty of time to book and take the three 2-hour in-car driving lessons and the road test in time to apply for their campus parking permit before the start of school.

Reason #3: Students absorb more when they’re not busy with school

Here’s yet another good reason to take Driver’s Ed during the summer. When class is in session, student’s brains and schedules are packed with studying for tests or quizzes, working on projects, attending sports practices and after school activities, and stressing over grades.

That means when the leisurely days of summertime hit, teens are less stressed and open to learning new things because there are fewer distractions in their lives. In other words, they can more easily absorb what they learn in class and put it to use on the road when they begin their in-car driving lessons.

Don’t fret, parents. All of our vehicles are equipped with an extra brake and accelerator on the instructor’s side.

Reason #4: Students are still delaying getting their driver’s license

Another reason to book Summer 2024 Driver’s Ed classes now is because more teens are still delaying getting their driver’s license. It used to be a rite of passage to get a driver’s license on one’s 16th birthday. Times have changed. Because of ride share services like Uber and Lyft, teens are in no hurry to get their license. In fact, only a quarter of 16-year-olds have their license to drive. That’s about half as many as teens in the mid-90’s.

These reluctant teens are now anxious to take Driver’s Ed in 2024. That means more of our classes at Drive Smart Georgia could be fuller than in recent years. That’s why it’s best to book an early class now to ensure the schedule that fits your teen’s needs. In this case, the early bird gets the worm.

Reason #5: Parents get a break from being the taxi driver

Parents, we get it. Being a taxi driver for your teen is time-consuming and a thankless job. Wouldn’t it be nice if your own teen could drive to school, practices, and after school activities, instead of relying on you to get from point A to points B and C?

Again, if you follow our advice to take Driver’s Ed in May or early June, your teenager should have no issues getting the campus parking permit.

Your teen will love his newfound independence and you can rest assured that he has received the best training from Drive Smart Georgia.

It’s time to enjoy your own independence from being the family taxi driver, dear parents. Rest easy and leave the teaching and lessons to the pros at Drive Smart Georgia.
