Who will teach the Driver Education course?
The Florida Safety Council is a not-for-profit organization, and has been providing education and training services in Florida since 1953. We focus on reliability and excellence. This lesson is taught by a professionally certified, State of Florida approved instructor. Each instructor has undergone extensive training in various levels of driver’s education, as well as background screenings.
What types of vehicles will the student learn to drive in?
The Florida Safety Council provides late-model sedans equipped with dual control brakes and automatic transmissions. The vehicles are setup with a dual brake system which keeps students safe, and provides instructors more opportunity to direct the student driver, allowing student drivers to learn faster.
Are students required to have a valid Florida license?
Students must obtain a restricted drivers license / learner’s license prior to the start of their first lesson. A Florida learner's license can be obtained after completing the Drug, Alcohol and Traffic Law Class for First Time Driver. Additional information about Florida learner's license can be found in the Florida DMSMV Driver's Handbook. Out of state license and International license are acceptable.
Are students insured in case of an accident?
The Florida Safety Council would like to make this process easy and convenient for you so we provide all insurance for the student driver, the instructor, and the vehicle. The student is fully covered so it is not necessary to obtain any additional motor vehicle insurance when in training session with us.
How will the student get to the driving lesson?
The student is responsible for his or her own transportation to and from the office.
What are the course fees or price for driving lessons?
The number of lessons required may vary from person to person. Please contact one of our Safety Council offices to discuss your individual needs. Students can monitor their own progress as they go and determine if further lessons are needed with instructor input. Most students find 3 lessons to be a good starting point in their driver training. Payment may be made over the phone with a debit or credit card. You may also come in person to register and pre-pay with credit card, cash or money order and then report to lessons on the scheduled date. For more information about fees call today.
