Driver Training is Different for This Generation
Teens today must learn how to drive in a different way than their parents learned. A generation ago teenagers learned to drive at school, that’s not the case anymore. Today a teenager has two choices, they are either home-schooled or they learn to drive from a private school like ours. The difference between the two methods of training is dramatic.
The facts don’t lie; teen drivers over-estimate their driving ability creating dangerous and sometimes fatal conditions! Today's cars offer serious dangers to new teenage drivers because most cars come equipped with engines that offer quicker acceleration, along with the ability to far exceed even the highest speed limits. With all of the technological advances available in our current cars and features that make them more enjoyable for us to drive, we are learning that there is a tremendous hidden expense, a cost that surpasses any benefit… injuries and death to teenage drivers!
In many people’s minds, including some elected officials, this is a system that needs to be changed. In their opinion, the current guidelines and requirements of the Connecticut DMV fosters an environment that allows drivers who are not equipped to safely drive today’s lighter and quicker cars. The fear of many is that too many parents are not properly equipped to train their own children. So when these home-schooled students receive their license they can steer a car forward, but not really drive a car safely.
How a teenager is trained to drive is a serious issue that needs to be explored by the teen and his or her parents or guardians
