DRIVERS EDUCATION AND BEHIND-THE-WHEEL TRAINING IN SAN DIEGO,CALIFORNIA
Welcome to dollardrivered.com! Our driver education program is one of the most interesting and informative program on the market. This course was created to be as convenient and educational as possible. The online program was designed to include interactive games and videos to keep our students learning while actually enjoying their time on the site. Some of the questions we are asked about the program are:
“How long does it take to finish?” The beauty of the program is you can complete it at your own pace. If you are motivated, you can complete the program in one day. If you have other commitments and very little time for online drivers education, then it will take you a little longer. Either way, it is up to you as to when you want to get the certificate of completion and start your behind-the-wheel training. We mail out the certificate of completion right away to avoid delay of our students getting their permit. We are locally owned and operated, so if a student wants to come into our office and pick up their completion certificate, then that is an available option.
“How much does your program cost?” Our program is priced right! We want our students to be happy and stay with us for a long time and recommending us to others. We are a value driven driving school, giving you the best price and best value for your dollar. We are not aware of any other driving school that can give you the type of quality drivers education and behind-the-wheel instruction for our low price. Click here to see our prices.
“I have heard that in-classroom drivers education is better than online?” There is no documented evidence to prove that this is true. In fact, no official traffic safety organization has been able to prove that drivers education in general reduces the potential risk of an accident. However, there is proof that proper parental controls, such as respect and guidance when using the car, does reduce the risk of their child having an accident. That is why at Alliance Defensive Driving School, we encourage parental participation in all our programs. We like the acronym T.E.A.M.S.: Together Everyone Accomplishes More Safely!
“What is in your online drivers education program?” This course is divided into 12 chapters, with video interaction and video clips through out. Once you finish each chapter you will have a short quiz to test your knowledge. You must get a mandatory 75% correct answers to move to the next chapter. When you pass the quiz you will be able to save your score. If you missed too many questions, you will be able to go back and read over the material and retake the quiz. The computer will grade the test and you will know immediately if you have passed. As mentioned earlier, we have students who finish the entire program in one day and in the process learn a fabulous amount of information about being a safe driver on our great American highways.
SOME GREAT TIPS ON HOW TO PASS THE WRITTEN TEST
The DMV written tests are multiple-choice tests. Each question has three answers. Many test-takers fail because they are too quick to mark an answer that may be true or partially true, but is not the best one for the situation described. Don’t hurry through your test. Make sure you understand the question before you select an answer. If you miss a question that appears to have two correct answers, ask the examiner to explain why the answer he or she marked is the best answer. Some DMV offices give your graded test back to you so you can review the ones you missed. If you don’t get yours back, ask if you may have it. Read through the test and mark the easiest answers first. Read the test a second time and answer the more difficult questions. Go over the test a third time. Make sure all the questions are answered, even if you are not sure of the answers. There is a good chance you will score enough correct guesses to have a passing grade. Reduce tension and focus on your breathing when you begin to feel anxious before or during the test. Deep breathing will not only reduce the tension you feel, it will also get more oxygen to your brain and help you to think better. Remember to study the current California Driver Handbook all the time, not just before taking the written test. Keep in mind that one of the great things about the written exam is that there is no time limit!
