We are aware that parents are finding it more difficult to manage time transporting their teens to school, sports and social events and after-school activities. Trying to fit in driver education classes adds to this load. JUST DRIVER TRAINING has made it easy on parents with an ONLINE driving school solution for their Teens, which is affordable and effective.
Teens are tired of sitting in a classroom, listening to lectures and trying to remain focused. Traditional classrooms in bricks and mortar with accelerated courses are no longer effective and are outdated. Distractions in the physical classroom, boredom, exhaustion and info overload, the 522+ pages of information to cover in only 5 days makes it impossible for Teens to absorb in this short period of time. Driving schools operating these types of classroom are only interested in their bottom line – payment and contracts and how quickly they can turn students around in the classroom. In our experience over the past years, statistics have shown the advantages of Online education. Teens absorb more information and retain the driver education far better through "Ownership Learning" - this is the 21st century learning method. Teens can now choose the time of day, the amount of time and the amount of work they want to cover. The course has a time limit of 6 months. Our ONLINE driver training course is interactive and with secure username and password for access to the course. Teens can now enjoy working on the course to suit their school and sports schedules.

HOT NEWS FOR 14 year olds!
At age 14, Teens are now permitted to begin the 30 hour Online Driver Education course which has been approvedby the DDS to assist in preparing them for their learner's permit exam when they turn 15.

Together with the information from the learner's manual, the Teen is more prepared for the challenge of learning to drive. Certificates of Completion will be issued on the Teen's 15th birthday.

Teen Advanced Driving – BEHIND THE WHEEL

Changes in our driving environment, volume of traffic, driver attitude, and dealing with distracted drivers has reached epidemic proportions and an every day problem drivers encounter on our roads. It has become even more essential to instruct Teens in advanced driving beyond the basic requirements to prepare them adequately to handle situations in their driving.
Educating Teens on driving responsibilities, driver behavior and attitude, the dangers of texting behind the wheel, cell phones, identifying distracted drivers, mindful driving and executing the correct actions, is of paramount importance to new drivers. Experience comes with time behind the wheel, but laying down the foundations for good driving standards are best learned in the early stages of a Teen's driving career. Our advanced driving for Teens takes their driving to the next level, provides skills beyond their biological years and prepares them for driving in the 21st century.
We educate and train Teens to become better drivers.

TEACHING THE DANGERS OF USING COMMUNICATION DEVICES WHILE DRIVING
Students in GA County Schools listen intently as Melody talks about the dangers of using communication devices while driving. The new ban on texting and talking behind the wheel came into effect on July 1st 2010.
Georgia law states that no person who is 18 years of age or older or who has a Class C license shall operate a motor vehicle on any public road or highway of this State while using a wireless telecommunications device. Under this law, drivers cannot write, send or read a text message, email, or use the internet on any wireless device while driving. This includes texting at red lights or turn lanes.
TADRA – THE TEENAGE AND ADULT DRIVER RESPONSIBILITY ACT
TADRA (The Teenage and Adult Driver Responsibility Act) is a graduated driver’s license program for young drivers ages 15 to 18. It was established in Georgia by a collaborative effort of highway safety advocates, legislators, law endorsement officials, educators, businesses and media in the wake of a high number of fatal vehicle crashes involving young, inexperienced drivers. The law significantly changes the way young motorists earn and maintain the privilege of driving by providing a controlled means for new drivers to gain experience and by reducing high-risk driving situations.
This act directly addresses the leading killer of our young people – traffic crashes. While the law does focus on young drivers, it also contains important provisions that affect drivers over 21, particularly in the area of DUI prevention and enforcement.
TADRA involves an intense, three-step educations process that allows the young driver to gain more experience behind the wheel:
STEP ONE – INSTRUCTIONAL PERMIT (CP) is granted to 15-year-olds upon successfully passing a written examination. The driver with this permit must be accompanied by a passenger who is 21 years old and possesses a valid Class C driver’s license at all times while driving.
STEP TWO - INTERMEDIATE LICENSE (Class D) The license is granted to drivers between 16 and 18 years of age who have held an Instructional Permit for 12 months and passed a driving test. The Intermediate License has the following restrictions: 1. No driving between the hours of 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. No exceptions. 2. No driving with any non-family passengers for the first six months. After 6 months, no more than three non-family passengers that are under 21 years of age. 3. Joshua’s Law – On or after January 1, 2007, any 16 year old who obtains an initial Class D license must have completed: a. You must have completed a driver education course approved by the Department of Driver Services and b. You also must have completed a cumulative total of at least forty (40) hours of other supervised driving experience, including at least six (6) hours at night. If you have not completed an approved driver’s education course, you cannot get your Class D driver’s license until you reach age seventeen (17).
STEP THREE - A FULL LICENSE (Class C) driver’s license is granted to drivers ages 18 years of age and older who hold the Class D license and have incurred no major traffic convictions during the previous 12 months. The following violations must not occur during this period: 1. DUI 2. Eluding a police officer 3. Drag racing 4. Reckless driving 5. Hit and run 6. Any violation that assesses four or more points on the driver’s license Drivers under the age of 18 years in a 12-month license suspension period must not incur a violation point count over four points. Georgia has a zero tolerance for underage drunk driving. Convicted drivers with a blood-alcohol content level of .08 grams or higher will face a 12-month license suspension on the first offense.
1. In 2000, one out of five fatal crashes in Georgia involved speed, with drivers ages 16-17 having the highest rate of motor vehicle fatalities (based on the total number of drivers per age group).
2. Young, inexperienced drivers ages 16 to 24 have a higher rate of crashes, injuries, and fatalities than drivers over age 24.
3. The Teenage and Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TADRA), enacted on July 1, 1997, led to a 44.5 percent decline in teenage speed-related crashes in 18 months, which was five times less than the rate of drivers over the age 24.

CRASH AVOIDANCE COURSE
TEENS AND ADULTS
JUST DRIVER TRAINING identified a need to provide additional training in the areas of collision avoidance, distracted driving and general driver awareness. The Crash Avoidance Course was introduced in an endeavor to save young lives, and provide Teens and young Adults with additional driving skills beyond the basic driving requirements of the state of Georgia.
The program takes the Teen's driving ability to the next level, focuses on awareness, distracted driving and the steps of defensive driving. The course pre-sets the reaction of a driver in a time of emergency to avoid a collision and promote safety behind the wheel.
Drivers are trained in a course designed to enhance precision steering, emergency braking, vehicle control and collision avoidance techniques directly behind the wheel. These skills are practiced in a training area with additional driving in a real time environment. Training includes reactions and skills to manage driving in inclement weather conditions, blow-outs and speed control.
