Other Types of Drivers Education
Up to this point we've mostly covered drivers education classes to help someone who doesn't know how to drive, learn to drive. The focus has been on the teen-aged driver, since they make up the largest group of unlearned drivers. But there are other types of drivers education courses besides beginning ones.
There are traffic school classes, designed for those who have gotten enough tickets that the traffic court judge has sentenced them to traffic school to relearn what they've apparently forgotten. These classes are often run by each state's DMV, but many states will also allow you to take online courses, if you provide a certificate from them saying you have successfully completed the course.
There are also defensive drivers courses you can take to improve your driving skills. Many insurance companies will give you lower rates if you've successfully completed a defensive driving course. If you're looking for some hands-on experience to go with your defensive driving course, check in your area for defensive drivers schools. There are also schools which will teach you how to drive in inclement weather, complete with hands-on driving experiences in simulated bad weather conditions. If you've never driven in snow before and find yourself moving to an area which has cold and snowy winters, unless you plan on parking your car until spring, consider looking into one of these types of drivers education classes. And if you're wanting to drive commercially (bus or truck driver), there are drivers education courses to fit those needs. We hope you'll be able to use this information if you are looking for a drivers education class for yourself or a new driver. There are plenty more informational links out there, this is just to give you a start.
