The Best Driving Schools in Atlanta GA Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire  


The state of Georgia requires driving instructors in Atlanta GA to have a state certification from the Georgia Department of Driver Services Driver Training Program, requiring only that whomever is giving behind-the-wheel lessons to a non-licensed driver be at least 21 years old and no driving license suspension within the past five years, nor more than two times, nor convicted of a felony.

But the Georgia certification for driving instructors is no guarantee that any particular driver's ed instructor or behind-the-wheel driving school in Atlanta GA is doing business safely or ethically, providing real value, or satisfying students.

This makes it all the more significant that all schools for behind the wheel driving lessons in Atlanta GA who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction with their driving instruction, verified state registration wit the Georgia DDS (Department of Driver Services), good complaint record, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.


The Need for Driving Schools in Atlanta GA

Driving schools in Atlanta are important because driving is legally considered a privilege, is a skill, and is inherently dangerous. With proper driving instructors, human error can be reduced. There are some good driving schools in Atlanta GA that can give driving lessons in Atlanta GA as well as instruct  on additional driving safety techniques and driving skills.

The Best Driving Schools in Atlanta GA Not Only Teach, They Raise Driving Safety Awareness
Teen driving school, driving instruction, driving lessons, driver's ed-no matter what you call it, we are all better for having been through it. Whether you need to brush up after being a passenger for a long time or you've got a teen that is ready for the ultimate symbol of independence, driving schools in Atlanta GA offer a wide variety of services.

To prepare for a learner's permit or driver's license test, there are two stages to the driving lessons. The MVD-licensed driving instructors provide classroom instruction to familiarize you with the rules of driving and the road, licensing and registration protocol, and accident causes and prevention. Following instruction, students might be shown an example of the MVD test to gauge what the student has learned.

Behind-the-wheel Driver Training in Atlanta GA

Many driving instructors will pick you up at your location for behind-the-wheel driving lessons in Atlanta GA. The driving instructors teach the student about driving awareness, defensive driving skills, and the principles of inertia and momentum. The student driver learns about vision and motor coordination, maintaining space, changing lanes, smooth operation of the controls, judging their speed, and safe merging techniques.

The driving instructors in Atlanta give thorough tutorials on parking as well, including parallel parking, diagonal parking, and perpendicular parking. After a thorough understanding of the basics is established, student drivers might get to apply these new skills in different settings around Atlanta, such as urban driving, country driving, and freeway driving. When student drivers display sufficient skill, the driving instructors can even simulate an MVD driving test. Alternately, if you only need your driving skills refreshed after an absence behind the wheel, driving schools in Atlanta offer practice tests for "brush-ups"-a great way to be certain of your skill level before heading to the MVD.

Some driving schools in Atlanta GA might accommodate student drivers with physical or cognitive disabilities as well. And don't be nervous - the best driving instructors at driving schools in Atlanta GA are extremely patient.
