Learning Together for Success

Classroom Phase


Classroom Phase

The classroom phase of Driver Education at Lake Park is the cornerstone of the program. This phase runs concurrently throughout the semester with simulation, range, and behind-the wheel. It is designed to give students basic information on a variety of topics related to the safe operation of a motor vehicle and more importantly how to interact with people on the road.

Driving is more than just maneuvering a car through traffic. A driver has to learn to interact with other users on the road and make intelligent decisions. This process takes training over an extended period of time under the supervision of both instructors and parents.
