Classroom Driver Education

Classroom Teen Driver Education Course

Safe America's Classroom Driver Education courses go far beyond just telling teens how to merge with traffic - they're an integral part of our non-profit's efforts to make metro roads safer for novice and experienced drivers alike.

All Safe America driver education courses are licensed by the State of Georgia Department of Driver Services. Each student will attend 30 hours of classroom training, which includes the State-required Alcohol and Drug Awareness (ADAP) training. Students will also complete either 6 hours or 10 hours of private, individual behind-the-wheel training with a licensed driver training instructor.

The behind-the-wheel training is performed in individually scheduled 2-hour increments which must occur within the 6 months following the classroom training. This is scheduled after completion of classroom instruction.
