Nearly 1.3 million people die in car accidents every year due to lack of knowledge on the rules of the road. Doing something as a simple as taking driving lessons or a drivers ed course at your school can be very beneficial. For example, depending on where you live you can possibly earn a 10% discount on car insurance if you have attended driving school or drivers ed.
Although it seems as if driving lessons can be pretty expensive there are still may solid options that are reasonable and affordable. There are a couple of places you can go for driving school.
Drivers Ed is Not Driving School
First off I would like to say that there is a difference between driving lessons and Drivers Ed. Driving lessons are normally taken outside of school at a facility. Drivers Ed is usually a course offered at your school which takes place during the school day. Taking Drivers Ed at school is most definitely cheaper than taking a class out of school. At my school the Drivers Ed course is around $325 and you are able to earn your permit at the same time. Unfortunately every school doesn’t have the same course as mine but don’t worry! I’ve got you covered.
Green Light Driving School
Green Light Driving school is a great driving school to insure success when on the road. One of my sisters took her driving lessons at green light, earned her permit, then her license and was driving within the next month or so. She said, “the driving experience with green light was great with nice instructors at a good price”. At Green Light there are multiple options for a person to choose from.
The cheapest class is $145 that includes 30 hours of in class instructions. The most expensive class is $505 that includes 30 hours of in class instruction plus 8 hours behind the wheel instruction. There are different classes in between that allow both learning experience in the class and behind the wheel.
Top Driver Driving School
Top Driver is yet another great driving school to get your money’s worth. This school offers in vehicle monitoring along with 2 teenagers per car for 2 hours at $120. Driving alongside other teenagers and seeing their perspective of driving can be a very beneficial thing especially for teens. It is scientifically proven that we learn better observing the act than performing it. At Top Driver you also have the option to make some of your classes private if necessary at any point or time.
When it comes to driving it is important that you know everything and anything to keep you and the others around you safe. Although it might seem impossible to afford driving school you should keep in mind the benefits that come along with it.
