Course Description

Our Certified 6-Hour Behind-the-Wheel Defensive Driver's Education Course offers a structured driver's education program for new drivers. The course comprises three sessions, each lasting 2 hours, allowing new drivers to build their skills progressively. They will start with fundamental driving skills, advance to more complex driving techniques, and conclude with advanced skills training.

Structure of this 6-Hour-Behind-the-Wheel Course

Our certified instructors conduct lessons using official Texas Department Certified Driver's Education Vehicles. These vehicles are visibly marked and equipped with a supplementary brake system.

First Lesson: Basic Skills

Lesson #1 of the Behind-the-Wheel instruction commences with the initial approach to the vehicle. New drivers will be instructed on how to identify potential hazards in the immediate vicinity and conduct a brief visual examination of the vehicle itself. In addition to familiarizing themselves with the vehicle's controls, students will gain an understanding of when and how to employ them effectively. This lesson unfolds on local roads with lower traffic volume, facilitating learning in areas such as vehicle handling, navigating curves and turns, smooth braking and acceleration, maintaining proper spacing, consistent speed, optimal lane positioning, eye positioning and tracking, and more. The lesson introduces new drivers to defensive driving techniques that equip them with the knowledge and confidence needed to minimize accident risks, ensuring their safe return home.

Second Lesson: Advanced Skills

During Lesson #2 of the Behind-the-Wheel instruction, students will navigate highways and urban roads. Building upon the skills acquired in the previous lesson, they will gain proficiency in handling higher traffic volumes on city streets and highways. This lesson focuses on safe driving at elevated speeds, lane changes, merging, identifying blind spots, and recognizing pedestrian activity. Moreover, students will learn to navigate intricate intersections and share the road with large commercial vehicles, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of complex traffic scenarios.

Third Lesson: Finishing Skills

Lesson #3 of the Behind-the-Wheel instruction occurs on roads resembling those found at the testing location, including a designated parking lot where students can practice parallel parking. Building on the skills acquired in prior lessons, students will be trained in parallel parking, reversing, maneuvering in and out of parking spaces, executing U-turns, K-turns, and a comprehensive review of all aspects that will be assessed during the Driver's License Exam.
