Our Behind-the-Wheel driver’s education course teaches thorough defensive driving. This allows the students to become safer drivers by enabling them to read all hazards and dangers of the roads, terrain and other drivers. We don’t teach the test, but teach the student the knowledge and skills they need so they will be confident and more experienced drivers. After our course, they will pass the Pennsylvania Driver’s License Test with ease and grace.
All lessons are done in 2-hour sessions. We recommend parent/guardian tutoring in between lessons to practice the skills and techniques taught during the last lesson.
The Student is picked up and dropped off at their house for each lesson, unless other arrangements are made in advance.
This lesson takes place on the country roads of mid to upper Bucks County. Here they will learn how to handle the automobile and the roads. This terrain gives a wide variety of twists and turns on wide and narrow roads.
This lesson takes the student down toward the city of Philadelphia. In addition to the skills they learned in the previous lesson they will also learn how to drive in city and highway traffic while learning how to watch for pedestrian activity. This lesson also includes highway and city driving, usually on I-95 and Roosevelt Blvd.
This lesson takes place in a parking lot. The student learns how to parallel park, reverse the car, pulling in and out of parking spots, U-turns, K-turns, and a basic review of everything that the student will be tested on for the driver’s exam.
