Introduction to Pennsylvania Driver Education

Learn how to handle your car properly and safely so you can drive for a long time!

Few things are as important to us as our driver's license. Driving may be a great privilege, but did you know it is also an important responsibility? We have designed this program to help you get your Pennsylvania driver's license while you learn how to be a safe driver. But consider this only as a first step of many that you will take, since you will not be doing any actual driving here. Learning traffic laws and proper driving techniques may not seem like the most exciting thing in the world at times; however, it’s necessary to become a responsible driver. Driving is a complicated skill that requires you to perform a variety of tasks at the same time. While some people can learn to control their vehicles quickly, there are no "natural" drivers. Add distractions to the mix, and driving is even more complicated!

As with most things in life, getting good at something takes practice, so don’t get discouraged. The more you learn and the more driving experience you accumulate, the better prepared you will be for the road. Keep in mind that the most important part of driver's education is learning how to be a safe driver, not finishing this course as fast as possible. Because we do not provide behind-the-wheel training as this is a theory class, we recommend that you obtain driver training with an instructor. You are also required to practice with an experienced, licensed driver such as a parent so you can fully benefit from our course. After all, how fun is it if you have to worry about keeping your car steered straight? How fun is it if you crash, if it means you won't be driving for a while, and perhaps get hurt in the process? Learn how to handle your car properly and safely so you can drive for a long time!
