If you’re over the age of 18 and still don’t have a driver’s license, you can take all of your “classroom” drivers ed coursework online. Most of the online adult driver education courses are faster and easier than courses for those who are under the age of 18. Back when I was a driving instructor, most adult driving students had very limited schedules, so the explosion of online drivers ed courses for adults has really helped a lot of people obtain a driver’s license when they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to get one.
Getting a license is not as simple as just going down to the DMV and taking a test anymore, though. States have different requirements, but taking some form of drivers ed is typically one of them. In a lot of places, the online adult driver education courses are very quick (just a few hours) and there are no behind-the-wheel driving hour requirements. As long as you can pass the exams at the DMV you’re good to go. In other states, the process is a little more intense, but usually there are fewer requirements than those under 18.
Online adult driver education courses are for more than only getting a piece of plastic that says you can drive. They provide people with vital information on laws, ways to handle specific situations, and techniques to drive defensively, and they do it in a way that helps you retain the information through various content delivery methods. All of these aspects combine to keep the roads a little safer. Upon successful completion of an online adult driver education class, many insurance providers give discounts that make premiums drop. So, don’t avoid the process any longer, enroll in a school today, and obtain your license quickly.
