Driver's Ed and Your Driver's License

Driver's Ed is a requirement to get a driver's license for teenagers and new adult drivers in many states.

While driver's education and training programs will differ from state to state, completing a course will help prepare you to pass the written exam and road test administered by your state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Department of Revenue (DOR), Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), or Department of Public Safety (DPS).

Along with preparing you for your driver's tests, Driver's Ed will teach you the skills required of safe, responsible drivers.

Completing a driver's education course will put you one step closer to meeting the requirements of your learner's permit and getting behind the wheel with your first driver's license.

Even if you're an experienced driver or a parent getting ready to teach your teenager how to drive, a Driver's Ed course can help refresh you on topics including:

  • Safe and defensive driving habits.
  • Traffic laws and the rules of the road.
  • Sharing the road with other drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.
  • Handling adverse conditions and emergencies situations.

Driver's Ed, whether it's a requirement or not, can benefit all drivers.
