How much time should be devoted to student driver education?
It is suggested that before beginning the course, teachers discuss with students what they hope to gain from their driver education. This will assist teachers in developing a school-based program from the range of materials available that best meets students' needs, interests, resources and time. Information available on this site should be supplemented with existing school programs or information from other sources.
However, it is recommended that the units exploring values and attitudes be compulsory.
Teachers should determine the amount of time to be allocated for each unit according to the number of activities they undertake and whether or not this is supplemented by existing information and activities from other sources.
