Learning is FUN!

All STAR basic driver education is always in compliance with the course requirements of the Graduated Driver Licensing program in your state, including the required ratio of classroom to in-car training.

But who says learning can’t be fun? After all, the more you engage and involve a student the smarter they become! We’ve designed our coursework and our classroom activities to be engaging, interesting and even fun for students, through the use of video, games and guest-speakers in addition to instructor lectures. Our classroom instruction is carefully designed to introduce both the physical and intellectual tasks involved in operating a motor vehicle in traffic. We know from experience that when students are bored, students stop learning, so we strive to make All STAR the classroom experience teens look forward to attending.

  • Classroom instruction using our proprietary Driving for Life curriculum
