How to Evaluate the Quality of a Driving School

Last updated 7 years ago

The moment teenagers turn sixteen, all they can think about is receiving their driver’s licenses. Some parents choose to instruct their own teens behind the wheel. Others are required by state law to put their teenagers through a qualified driving school. Keep in mind these factors when evaluating a driving school for your teen driver.

Ask Questions

One of the best ways to evaluate a potential driving school for your son or daughter is to ask the right questions. Call several schools and record their answers to your inquiries. Before making any phone calls, make a list of your questions and standards that you want a quality driving school to meet. How many hours will enrolled teenager spend driving? What driving subjects does the school cover?

Visit a Class

After narrowing your list of driving schools to a select few, take the time to visit the schools. Many driving schools accompany their road instruction with classroom teaching. Ask the school if you could sit in on a class to observe the instructor, the students and the driving techniques being taught. Visiting your teen’s prospective driving school will help you be comfortable with your child’s driving instructions.

Talk to Other Parents

Another way to find a quality driving school for your teenage driver is to talk to other parents. They can help you determine if a driving school is reputable. The parents of your child’s friends with older siblings may have already found a driving school they prefer. These parents may also help you to avoid certain driving schools. Regardless of a parent’s recommendation, make sure to call and visit the driving school for yourself so you can make your own decision.
