TEEN PROGRAM

 

At HADS, 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.

That is why we support the requirement for Driver Education in Texas for anyone under the age of 18 who wishes to get a drivers license. Our teen driver education program, curriculum and instructors are State-Approved and licensed by the Texas Education Agency (License C#1715).

Our teen driver education program consists of 32 hours of classroom instruction and 7 hours of driving and 7 hours of observation and now includes the DPS Road Skills Test.

Driving Information

State of Texas requires teens to complete 14 hours of in-car instruction along with the 32 hours of classroom instruction. Our in car program mirrors the in class sessions. Driving is scheduled as soon as the student receives his/her permit from the Department of Public Safety. Students can schedule driving at the same time as class! Driving times are typically available before and after class or weekends. All drive times are 2 hours in length (one hour observation and one hour driving), this means behind the wheel training can get done in 7 sessions!

Behind The Wheel Training

Qualified, Trained Instructors: our instructors get more than TWICE the training required because of required annual continuing education.
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).

Driving Workbook : we have available for purchase, this workbook contains a series of eight practice sessions that increase from in complexity. We created this workbook in response to parents and teens needing guidance on what skills to work on after driving lessons.

Teen Tutoring

We all know that young drivers need a wide-range of experience driving on the roads. We understand that having a teen driver driving alone is a daunting and frightening prospect. The lessons we have developed create a driver with forward-looking driving skills, and a deeper level of maturity.

Teen Tutoring is available for students from who completed traditional face to face 32 hour program, on-line program or parent taught programs. We can also to assist busy parents in completion of the state required 30 Hour log sheet.
