Acceler8 Driver Education
A question to ask when considering a driver education program:
Where will my child be performing their behind the wheel learning experience? In a parking lot or on the road in real driving situations?
Acceler8 students drive on the road all six drives.
Drive 1: Begins on smaller two lane roads, depending on student’s ability; Left & right turns,Reading road signs at the proper distance, effective use of all mirrors, braking for tailgaters, Managing space & the what IF!
Drive 2: Consists of country driving, curved roads at 55 mph speeds. Remaining drives will include various parking maneuvers (pulling in and backing in between two vehicles), WHAT IF!
Drive 3: Focuses on lane changes. This is quite demanding, requiring students to take their eyes off the road to check blind spots while keeping lane position. We complete 15-20 this drive to build confidence with this maneuver. Correct lane to turn into.Parking. WHAT IF!
Drive 4: Combines previous drives focusing on diverse intersections, one way roads, double, left or right hand turns and Parking. WHAT IF!
Drive 5: Students learn to maneuver (passing, judging speed, acceleration, on-ramp traffic)I-94, entering and exiting several times to see the various styles of ramps to build confidence merging onto the highway. Parking WHAT IF!
Drive 6: Evaluation drive.
Taking Driver Education now gives students 14 yr. 8 mo. the option to take Segment 1 at least 12 months prior to their 16th birthday. This is important because it allows the student ample practice time in many different weather and road conditions. With Michigan’s new Graduated Licensing system students need to drive 50 hours (10 of these hours at night) behind the wheel with a parent or designated adult 21 or older before obtaining their license.
This extra time before a students 16th birthday allows both of you time to increase your confidence in their abilities before taking their road test and receiving their driver’s license. It also gives students time to ask valuable questions as observe others driving as they become learners of driving rather than a passenger occupied with other activities and thoughts.
What should I do when driving in the rain? Hydroplaning How do I handle snow and ice?What if I encounter an animal while driving?Practicing and answering questions now only makes for a more competent and skilled driver later.
