TEEN PROGRAM

 

Louisiana Law requires that anyone 15 - 17 years of age who desires a drivers license to take a "38 Hour Course", which includes 30 hours of class and 8 hours of behind the wheel training.

At First Class Driving School, our initial classroom training involves establishing that a driver’s license is a true privilege, and that an automobile is a potential 5000 pound bullet.

We teach that operating a motor vehicle involves potential life-altering decisions each second that elapses. We believe that this is the most important course that can influence a young person’s future, as well as the biggest responsibility they will have undertaken to date.

A collision has the potential to take away all that we value most in life: Family, Health, Time, & Money.

Behind The Wheel Training
This is a critical part of the student’s training. As it should be with any laboratory training, we drive immediately after the class training no long delays. We exclusively use safety-proven Honda Civic® vehicles with dual-controls, anti-lock brakes and front and side air bags.

Individualized Driving Instruction : we progress at your teen’s rate, without any other teens to distract or embarrass them.
Qualified, Trained Instructors : our instructors get more than TWICE the training required, and they are continuously retrained.
Specific Lesson Objectives : our instructors do not “cruise” the road aimlessly. We fill each lesson with productivity, ensuring that each minute spent in the vehicle has purpose.
Vehicle Awareness : we teach that the driver is the pilot of the vehicle and it is the driver’s responsibility to know their vehicle. A safe driver knows their vehicle and knows what to do to keep from damaging their vehicle (ie. the significance of the oil light or the alternator light).
Intersection Awareness Skills : it’s not the stop sign or traffic light that causes a crash. Few drivers naturally look in the right places to prevent collisions at intersections, thus, over 50% of all crashes happen here.
Space Cushion Management : controlling space around your vehicle takes a pro-active driver and discipline. These skills DO NOT happen naturally.
Visual Scanning Skills : training a new driver to look “outside the lines” to find the dangers, then to separate and compromise.
Critical Skills : students get to “experience” anti-lock brakes and off-road recovery, significantly reducing their risks of panicking in a real-life crisis situation.
Push/Pull Steering - Hands at 9 & 3 : how you keep your hands on the wheel have never been more important—especially if your vehicle is equipped with air bags.
Detailed Evaluation : insights from your teen’s instructor as to where they need more attention, practice or more training. Again, we don't leave you out there without given you a "heads-up" as to where your new driver may put you or themselves in danger.
(8) Planned Driving Hours, minimum, of Individual Driving Instruction. The training is done by appointment; each appointment includes two hours of one-on-one driver training.
