One question that we get almost daily is from people that are a few months away from turning 18 and have never gotten their license or taken drivers ed. They wonder if it is better to just wait for their birthday and take adult drivers ed or if they should go ahead and take a teen drivers ed course to get the process started now. The problem is that this question has no universal answer. There are many things to consider.
- Do you need your license or do you just want it? – This is a big one. If you need it than waiting may not be your best option but overall adult drivers ed has the advantage over teen drivers ed as it is more affordable, more convenient, and faster to complete.
- How far away is your birthday? – Since teen drivers ed can take months to complete, if you only have a few weeks left until your birthday you may be better off waiting a little longer and taking the 6 hour adult drivers ed course online after your birthday.
- Could you get a ride to drivers ed if you decided to get started now with a teen drivers ed course? – Adult drivers ed can be completed 100% online. If you take teen drivers ed you will have to go take driving lessons at a location which means you have to get there.
- Can you afford to pay the extra cost of teen drivers ed versus adult drivers ed? – Most teen drivers ed courses cost hundreds of dollars to take. If you go with adult drivers ed online it will only cost you $65.00.
- How much time do you have to spend taking a course? – Teen drivers ed can take months to complete while adult drivers ed only takes 6 hours and you can complete it online.
