5 reasons to book summer 2022 Drivers Ed now

Will your teen driver need summer 2022 Drivers Ed classes soon? If so, the time to book them is now. Right now. So, exactly why should you book 2022 summer classes six weeks ahead of time? Please check out the five reasons below to book summer 2022 Drivers Ed classes now.

Reason #1: So many students need Drivers Ed this summer

Summer 2021 Drivers Ed classes The pandemic caused millions of students to delay getting their driver’s licenses. Although many took Driver’s Ed in 2021, many more still delayed taking the required 30-hour course and their in-car driving lessons.

That means demand is up for summer 2022 Drivers Ed classes. The key is to book them early to secure the best dates and times. Yes, we are able to offer online options like a Zoom class with a real teacher in real time or an online program with a convenient start/stop option. However, many parents opt for and know the value of in-person Drivers Ed classes, especially since we have super-safe COVID-19 precautions in place. For more details, see reason #4.

Reason #2: Take Drivers Ed early to get those drives in

If your teen wants to get his or her Georgia driver’s license before the first day of school, make sure they have enough time to complete their in-car driving lessons.

Drive Smart Georgia requires 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 2021 Drivers 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 in time to apply for their campus parking permit before the start of school.

Rest assured that we are taking precautions to keep our students safe!

COVID-19 precautions in our classrooms

Safety in our classrooms is still a priority at Drive Smart Georgia.

However, to align with current CDC guidelines, Drive Smart Georgia has revised our COVID-19 precautions in classrooms to below.

  • For the safety of our students, all classroom teachers have been vaccinated and boosted; therefore, they are not required to wear a mask during class.
  • Students are not required to wear masks in class due to the decreasing spread of Covid-19. However, if students are not fully vaccinated, we strongly suggest that they wear a mask during classes.
  • Before and after each and every class, Drive Smart Georgia will use a commercial grade disinfecting unit that is 100% safe to kill airborne germs. This is an above and beyond precaution that we are happy to offer.
  • In addition to using our commercial-grade disinfection unit, our teacher will sanitize all surfaces (doors, doorknobs, light switches, desks, chairs, faucets, desks, chairs, pens – everything that is touched!) frequently. Yes, we have plenty of hand sanitizer for all students too.
  • Before and after breaks, students will be asked to wash their hands, one of the best defenses against COVID-19.
  • All classroom teachers have signed agreements that they will NOT report to work if they are not feeling well.
  • Teachers will take the students outside as often as possible for fresh air breaks.

Reason #5: COVID-19 safety precautions in our vehicles

Drive Smart Georgia is is also keeping our driving lessons and road tests safe for our students.

  • All lessons will continue to be conducted from our locations in order to give our instructors more time to completely disinfect our vehicles between sessions.
  • For the safety of our students, all instructors are fully vaccinated. Vaccinated students will have the option of wearing masks. If they choose to do so, of course, our instructor will also gladly wear a mask. Unvaccinated students are strongly encouraged to wear a mask.
  • Rest assured that our instructor will be symptom and fever-free. All instructors have strict guidelines to be able to conduct driving lessons.
  • Upon arrival, please stay in your vehicle. You will receive a text from your instructor when your driving lesson is scheduled to start. The text will include the vehicle number of the car your child will use for the lesson. Vehicle numbers are located on the front and back bumpers of our cars. Our instructor will be standing next to the vehicle. We’re doing this to limit your contact with our office staff. Everything will be conducted outside or in the vehicle.
  • Instructors will sanitize every surface, switch, mirror, steering wheel, seats and more before and after each driving lesson.
