AAA offers more driver education options for teen drivers.
AAA Licensed to Learn Driver Education Program
AAA’s exclusive driver education program provides 30 hours of classroom instruction and 10 45-minute behind-the-wheel lessons one-on-one with a certified driving instructor.
In-School Driver Education
Local area high schools have chosen to partner with AAA to offer high-quality driver education modeled after AAA’s exclusive Licensed to Learn curriculum, providing 24 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours behind the wheel with a certified driving instructor.
This course teaches you how to proactively avoid, and react calmly in, stressful driving situations. After completion, you may be eligible to reduce up to 4 points from your driving record and may also receive a 10% reduction on portions of your insurance.
5-Hour Pre-Licensing Course
Completion of this course earns an MV-278 certificate, which is required to take the State Road Test. For the road test, it’s also required that a parent or guardian certify that at least 50 hours of practice behind the wheel have been completed.
A course is available almost every weekend and covers the following driving fundamentals:
- The DMV point system
- The highway transportation system
- The laws of physics as they relate to driving and the effects of restraining devices
- Defensive driving techniques
- What to do in case of a collision
- The effects of driver attitude, emotions and skills
- Alcohol and drugs and their effect on driving
NOTE: The MV-278 certificate number is required to schedule a road test, and the certificate must be presented to the examiner on the day of the test.
