Oakland, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2011
DriversEd.com has received approval from the Texas Education Agency to provide a drivers education course exclusively for adults. The course, mandatory in Texas for individuals over 18 and under 25 years old, is designed for adults who want to earn a first drivers license. This course eliminates the Texas DPS written exam requirement, saving students time and money. The Online Driver Education Course Exclusively for Adults involves six hours of online instruction and offers the latest information in safety techniques and defensive driving to a new, adult demographic. DriversEd.com is no stranger to Texas students, having offered the DPS-approved course #108, Parent-Taught Drivers Education for Teens (18 and under) since 2005.
March 2010 marked new regulations enacted by Texas Senate Bill 1317, requiring adults between 18 and 25 to complete adult drivers education before receiving a first drivers license. DriversEd.com, one of only three online providers approved by the TEA, uses highly regarded and effective distance learning methods to engage a variety of learners with multimedia content, 3-D case studies, and interactive learning tools. The course covers the fundamentals of drivers education with adults students in mind: alcohol and drug awareness, distracted driving, state traffic laws, defensive driving techniques, and sharing the road.
“We’ve worked very closely with the TEA to meet the needs of adult drivers. We’re very eager to add this course to our driver’s education offering and provide adult drivers in Texas with the information and skills that every driver should have prior to getting behind the wheel,” says Gary Golduber, President and CTO of DriversEd.com. DriversEd.com provides a range of courses that include DMV-licensed and state-approved online drivers ed courses for first time, adult and mature drivers. Like all the courses in DriversEd.com’s fleet, the Texas Online Driver Education Course Exclusively for Adults is entirely self-paced and currently offered with a substantial early release discount.
