Most people get their license when they are still in their teens. Depending upon the state where you live, you might be able to get your learner’s permit and start the process of learning to drive at either age 15 or age 16. For some, however, getting a license as a young teen is not practical or not desirable. As a result, there are plenty of adults who have not yet obtained their driver’s license who wish to do so.
If you are getting your driver’s license at a later age, you still have to learn how to drive, just as a teenager does. This means learning both the technical skills involved with driving a car and learning the fundamentals of how to drive in a safe and effective manner by keeping an eye on the people around you and driving assertively but not aggressively. While many teenagers learn these … Read More
Texas drivers education (DEd) courses serve an important purpose. The aim of Texas DEd courses is to educate new drivers to the rules of the road and to help them learn safe and effective driving skills. Each state has different requirements for a driver to become licensed to drive, but all new drivers will need to fulfill some type of driver’s education requirement in order to get their license.
Types of Texas Drivers Education Courses
In Texas, there are different driver’s education classes for adults who are getting their license for the first time than there are for new teen drivers. Under current Texas law, adults ages 18 to 24 who are getting a new license for the first time will need to take a six hour adult drivers ed course. This class differs from the driver’s education program required for drivers under the age of 18.

Driving lessons are the preferred way of learning how to drive and to get a driver’s license but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the drivers who passed the tests are capable drivers. One of the main reasons for deaths and physical disabilities is car accidents and evaluations indicate that not all driving schools are giving particular attention to educating the drivers on safety and traffic regulations. Basics and fundamental approach are being given by various driving schools and these topics are only focused in passing the driver’s examination. Even up to now, there are no mandatory rules and regulations from the government that states in what topics to teach students and how to show them but even if this is the truth, it is actually essential to find the right driving school that can make a difference to various students.

Looking to maximize the functionality of their cutting edge “infotainment” systems without causing undue distractions while behind the wheel, General Motors has announced a new voice-activated technology using Apple’s popular “Siri” voice command system. Set to be introduced in three Chevrolet models in 2014, the system would allow drivers to utilize much of the car’s in-car entertainment system without having to look away from the road, introducing the risk of an accident.
The “Siri”-led system would allow drivers to play music, change radio stations, find travel destinations, and use any other service found within GM’s MyLink entertainment system, as well as access information from their phones like contacts or appointments. It will connect to these new models through a Bluetooth system, and will be accessed through an activation button on the steering wheel, similar to those found in other voice command systems like OnStar.

Maybe Father doesn’t know best
Parent taught driver education is not usually what is best for the young teenager looking to earn their driver license, or more importantly than the license, learn how to drive. Natural complications inherent in the parent-teen relationship coupled with a lack of professional driver training education and preparation make this relationship precarious before either person ever gets in the car.
Parents focus on convenience
When it comes to their child’s well-being, parents may know best, but are rarely the best teachers of driver education. Historically, many parents have elected this cumbersome route to drivers ed because of the convenience it provided. They simply did not want to take junior to a driver education school for 32 trips, 16 separate classes, that ate into the family schedule.
But behind the wheel results show this is not what is best for teenagers embarking upon their first experience … Read More
