Obtaining a drivers license for the first time is basically a rite of
passage for all teenagers. While for teenagers it is a fun and exciting
time, for parents this time brings a lot of worry and sometimes parents
have reservations about whether they believe their teen is ready for
the responsibility which comes with being in the driver's seat. If you
feel this concern, you should consider investing in professional driving
lessons for your teen instead of relying on your school system's program.
Here are some of the benefits that professional driving lessons provide:
One on One Training. Depending on the school district your child attends,
he or she may have to share behind the wheel training opportunities with
other students. This means that one or two other students will be in
the car with an instructor while your student trains. This added distraction
may cause your teen to loose out on valuable advice from the instructor.
With professional driving lessons, your teen will benefit from one on
Flexibility. Often school districts have trouble getting all students
trained before they turn sixteen. While the limitations of these districts
are understandable, your teenager may not be able to wait six months
before getting his or her license due to work and school commuting demands.
If this is the case, taking private driving lessons is a flexible alternative
since you can schedule your appointments when it is convenient for you
and your teen.
Comprehensive Instruction. In addition, the quality of instruction from
professional lessons may be more comprehensive than that available in
public schools. A private instructor has fewer students and so can concentrate
more on your teenager's specific needs more fully. For instance, if the
instructor realizes that your teen still has trouble with three point
turns, he or she can have your teen spend a lesson working on them without
problem. Then if an additional lesson is needed to review additional
skills planned for the original lesson which were not covered, you can
just add another lesson to the schedule.
Professional driving lessons are worth the cost if you are hesitant
about your teenager being a new driver. Don't make your teen miss out
on the opportunity of driving just because you are a little nervous,
instead do it the right way with professional lessons and your teen will
be a well prepared driver.
