Parent Taught – Behind The Wheel ONLY

Original price was: $59.00.Current price is: $49.00.

Our Parent Taught – Behind The Wheel *ONLY* course is designed for students who have already acquired their learner permit and have completed the 32-hour theory portion of driver education. (Whether in high school, at a driving school, or online.)

Complete your 14 hours of driving lessons at home with a parent/guardian instead of a certified driving instructor. (7 hours of behind-the-wheel driving and 7 hours of behind-the-wheel observation)

This program was created to help parents and students complete the Behind The Wheel portion of their training at home and without needing to visit a driving school. This guide will help introduce parents to driving instruction and assist them in teaching new drivers how to learn safely and correctly. While driving becomes second nature to adults, some required tasks and maneuvers can be completely foreign to an untrained driver. Our guide will help to refresh parent’s memory and ensure that they are capable of teaching their students the proper driving techniques.





If you would like to transfer your Behind-The-Wheel portion of driver education in order to complete it with your parent or guardian, this is the course for you!
