One requirement for new teen drivers in Florida, as a part of the GDL program, is to complete a Drug and Alcohol (TLSAE) course, prior to obtaining a learner’s permit. What you may not know is that all courses are not created equal. So, how do you choose? Under Florida law, teens can choose an online or a classroom-based driver training program, as long as it is approved by the Florida DHSMV. GDL Institute is proud to offer a course that’s not only available online 24/7, but a course that’s also fun, informative, and that will prepare you for your learner’s permit exam. Here are some additional benefits of an online driver education program:
- Online training (also called eLearning) resonates with the younger Millennial generation. Teens today are looking for a learning experience that lets them learn, share, and participate in finding the important information… as well as discovering why it is important to them. As opposed to a boring lecture and series of videos in a traditional classroom-based environment, an online course lets students be more involved in the learning process and pacing.
- Location becomes unimportant. When going beyond the conventional classroom, a Drug & Alcohol course provider can ensure equal access to the same materials and learning experience, regardless of where a student is located. With an online course, students can be sure that they’ll receive the same great quality training that their friends and family have also received – no worries about finding the best instructor or arranging a schedule for commuting to class. Just plug in, connect to the Internet, find a comfortable spot to work, and begin!
- eLearning can be adapted for a variety of schedules. It is back to school season, and teenagers are busier than ever settling into new classes and homework routines. Taking the time to attend a driver’s education class after a long day at school or on a Saturday afternoon isn’t very appealing. The ability to plug in to driver training 24/7, and to complete class at one’s own pace means not only are students better able to fit in the time to complete their courses, parents don’t have to worry about getting their teens to class, and teens are better able to focus and actually learn the necessary content when it is convenient for them.
