What to Look for When Choosing a Driving School, Rochester, New York

Obtaining a driver’s license is one of the most significant milestones of your child’s teenage years—but before they get behind the wheel, they must gain the skills and knowledge necessary to operate a car safely. Choosing a quality driving school ensures they will get the instruction they need to become a responsible motorist. This guide explains what you should look for in a training facility.

Satisfied Students

If your teen’s friends attend driving school, ask their parents whether they would recommend the program. Online reviews are another great way to learn about the company and the experiences of past students. Visit the school’s website and social media pages to find out what people have to say about the quality of the instruction—you may even find comments from other parents that will put your mind at ease.

Opportunities for Parental Involvement

driving lessonsMost driving instruction courses recognize that earning a driver’s license is a major step for parents as well as their teens. Teachers often encourage parents to help their young drivers work on their skills between lessons. Find out what the school’s curriculum includes, so you can reinforce the lessons your teen is learning when you practice together.

Comprehensive Lessons 

In addition to learning basics like shifting gears, braking, and using turn signals, students should have the opportunity to get hands-on experience in a variety of real-life scenarios. The driving school should demonstrate how to travel through neighborhoods, maneuver in traffic, and coast on the highway. Practicing these skills ensures your teen will feel comfortable and safe in any environment.
