Segment One Driver Education
Segment One is an introduction to driving skills and the laws of the road. Important driving principles are imparted through behind-the-wheel instruction, pertinent lectures, class discussions, excellent textbooks, and relevant video resources. Eligibility for Segment One requires a minimum age of 14 years and 8 months.
Each student receives six hours of behind the wheel instruction and four hours of observation in our driver education cars. Our instructors provide a safe opportunity for students to develop their driving skills amidst real life situations on the road. Students are allowed to drive no more then one hour in a day.
Segment One meets for 24 hours of classroom sessions. Each session will be two hours in length and will be held Monday through Thursday for three weeks in a row (12 days). Completion of the course requires each student to pass a 80 question written test with an 70% or better.
The fifth day of Segment One is reserved for a Parents Night. During this meeting we describe the steps of the Michigan Graduated Drivers License, give a firsthand look at the Road Test, and offer practical tips for parents in teaching their teens how to drive.
