Sending kids to the driving school does not end the responsibility of parents in supervising and helping their teens learn how to drive. Parents play a major role in the lives of the teens because they are the one who really see their teens at home. The driving school, or any other form of school, acts as the complement to the role of the parents.
There are parents who would complain about the low ability of their teens to drive after sending to the driving school. To consider the matter, first, it is important to note the quality of the driving school. It is the reason why parents should look and search for the right driving school that can give the best driving education provision to their kids. There are various driving schools that are operating in the area; but not all of these driving schools can give the best and quality driving education provision.
Choosing the right school can help to make your teen an accomplished driver. Check for the documentation of the driving school for the full accreditation from the DMV or from any agency in the area. It is also necessary to know the set of driving instructors that are working in the driving school. Teens will get the knowledge and learning from instructors – and it is necessary to ensure quality people with your teens’ education.
Second, before parents should complain, it is necessary to understand that the driving education course is limited to the number of hours, as duly recommended and prescribed by the state. Driving schools do not have the luxury of time to consume for the full knowledge and full training of the new driver. In fact, the behind the wheel training is limited only to 20-30 hours, depending on the state laws and the driving school’s preference.
Third, the driving school is not responsible in giving teens lecture at home. When teens do not attend the scheduled lessons in the driving school, the administration cannot run after the person and force him or her to sit in the class. And when parents go out from the driving school, the responsibility ends there.
Parent’s help in teaching their teens about the value of safe driving is very important. Parents should supervise their teens with regard to attendance. How will a person learn and become an accomplished driver if he or she is not attending the classes? The role of the driving school can only come in full circle if teens are present and can hear discussions of the traffic laws, basic of driving, communication in driving, and other components.
On the other hand, it is still the responsibility of the parents to help the driving school to finish the practice. Because of the limited time, it is necessary for teens to practice driving at home with the supervision and direct commentary of parents. Through practice, teens will be able to develop and hone their skills in safety driving.
The accomplishment of something can only be done if parents and the driving school will combine efforts in teaching how to drive safely. Parents should not stay away from the responsibility being laid in their shoulder.
