Introduction to Indiana Teen Driving
Learn how to handle your car properly and safely so you can drive for a long time!
Driving is a great privilege and an important responsibility. You’re lucky that you live in a state like Indiana that allows you to complete part of your driver’s education online. Being able to take your time with this course and having someone you know teach you behind the wheel can relieve a lot of stress and will make you a better, safer driver.
This program is designed to help you obtain your Indiana driver’s license and, more importantly, to ensure you have the tools you need to be a safe driver. Although this course is just the first step before you get your actual license, it is important that you understand the basics so you can get behind the wheel safely.
Learning traffic laws and proper driving techniques may not be the most exciting thing in the world, but it’s necessary to become a responsible driver. Driving is a complicated skill that requires you to perform a variety of tasks at the same time. While some people can learn to control their vehicles quickly and remember traffic laws easily, there are no “natural” drivers – otherwise you wouldn’t be taking this course.
The State of Indiana requires you to complete 30 hours of online classroom instruction and 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training before you can get your driver’s license at 16 years and 6 months of age. You will need to get your behind-the-wheel training at a separate school since you will not be doing any actual driving here. The State of Indiana also requires that you hold your learner’s permit for at least 180 days (about six months) before you can get your license. Six months may seem like a long time to wait, but it allows you to gain valuable driving experience.
As with most things in life, getting good at something takes practice, so don’t get discouraged. The more you learn and the more driving experience you accumulate, the better prepared you will be for the road. Experienced drivers like your parents can also provide firsthand knowledge to help you on your way to becoming a licensed driver. By the end of this course you will have learned traffic laws and proper driving techniques, and you will be ready to hit the road – safely, of course.
