A requirement of the driver’s education program will be a two hour class for parents/guardians. The intention of this class is to educate parents/guardians about the content of the driver education curriculum, the junior operator’s law and the driving skills and behaviors that their children will be learning. It is important for parents/guardians to know the skills and behaviors that they should be modeling while driving so that they can coach and mentor their children to be safe and skilled drivers.
I view the parent class as a way for the RMV, driving school, parents, and students to all be on the same page in regards to the JOL laws/restrictions and their subsequent suspensions and fines.
I also use it as a format for parents to get to know me, the owner of the school, as well to give them some useful practice tips to make their student a better driver. It also gives parents the opportunity to have their questions about the drivers education process answered.
