Despite the worrisome statistics associated with teen drivers, many parents aren’t putting a lot of thought into picking the right driving school for their teenagers. The IIHS has discovered that a teen is four times more likely to get into a car accident when looking at car accidents per mile driven. It’s quite often that a driving school is picked solely based on the cheapest price. Unfortunately, this may sacrifice the quality of the driving instructors that are teaching teenagers and may increase the risk of getting into an accident. It could really make the difference between life and death. The Florida Department of Highway Safety has found that the rate of car crashes in students aged 15-19 who went to a more prestigious driving school was 77% less than other options included in the study. It’s important to not just take the driving school’s word about their ability to meet state standards. You should look into the specifics of the program and decide if they really do satisfy the requirements demanded by your state. You can contact your state’s motor vehicle organization to find out what the exact requirements are.
