Is Parent-taught driver education dangerous?

We recognize the effectiveness of home-schooling for many academic subjects. However, the lack of formal training, knowledge, teaching skills, and split-second decision-making on the part of the driver education parent-teacher can put the child, the parent, pedestrians, and other roadway users in direct danger.¬ Driving is a complex and dangerous task that takes a great deal of risk awareness and observation skills. A parent who lacks the skills to teach math in a home-schooling environment will not likely cause injury or death to others. Conversely, the result of improperly trained parents in a driver education environment can indeed lead to injury and death. Driver training instructors are trained to build skills and confidence in children throughout the child’s driving instruction experience, and both aspects must be present in the driver education learning environment in order to keep everyone alive and safe. Instructors are trained to stay calm and handle emergency situations (which may involve taking control of the vehicle). In summary, the benefits of home-schooled driver education are not worth the risk. The average parent does not possess the educational training or skills necessary to safely correct any driving errors or guide a new driver through all aspects of our complicated traffic environments.

Why shouldn't I learn how to drive in a vehicle without special equipment?

Parents would not have the advantage of a training vehicle equipped with dual control brakes, dual mirrors, and "student driver" signs displayed on the front and rear of their vehicle, making for a very, very dangerous learning environment.

How will my insurance rates will rise upon adding a new driver?

Currently, parents are given automobile insurance discounts if their children complete formal driver education. If this bill passes, not only will home-schooled parents pay more for automobile insurance, the danger associated with less experienced drivers can raise insurance rates for all drivers.

Why do students drive with other students in the vehicle?

Currently, student drivers have an opportunity to interact with their peers and validate lessons learned through the guided observation of their peers.

Are there any statistics showing parent-taught driver education instruction is less safe?

A national study completed in Oregon in January 2005 reviewed teen driving records, including 16, 17, 18, and 19-year old drivers. It compared those that had 50 hours of driving practice with their parents and no driver education course. The study revealed: The crash rate for the teens taking formal driver education was 11-21% LOWER than those taking 100 hours of practice time with their parents. The traffic conviction rate for the teens taking formal driver education was 39-57% LOWER than those taking 100 hours of practice with their parents. The driver license suspension rate for the teens taking formal driver education was 51-53% LOWER than those taking 100 hours of practice time with their parents In 1997, Texas implemented administrative rules, based on legislation passed in 1995 that provided for parent or guardian-taught novice driver training. The 2007 study entitled, "Parent-Taught Driver Education in Texas: A Comparative Education," published by the US DOT-National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), concluded, in part: "Based on the analysis of information derived from nine focus groups, the responses of approximately 500 young drivers to a statewide survey, and analysis of more than 1.4 million Texas driver records, there is evidence to suggest that the parent-taught driver education program has a negative influence on the overall safety of the novice drivers in Texas, especially in terms of young driver crash involvement."

Is taking a driver education program with All Star worth it financially

The average cost of driver education (classroom and driving lessons) is $300. This fee is well worth the cost when you consider the instruction, use of equipment, gasoline costs, and the added assurances a parent has in knowing that his/her child is being guided by highly trained professional in an automobile that is equipped with instructor brakes and other equipment to help manage learning in a safe environment. The cost savings for parents is not worth the risk. The cost of increased injuries and fatalities will outweigh any benefit gained from home-schooled driver education.

What is the ASDE Discipline Policy?

All Star Driver Education will expel any students in violation of State Laws and/or Local Ordinances which include, but are not limited to:

  •  The remaining balance must be submitted to our corporate office by the last day of class.
  • A fee of $10 is added to any account that is not paid in full by the first day of class.
  • No personal checks will be accepted unless approved by the corporate office.
  • If the other half of your balance is not paid by the end of class, we will withhold the Segment One Completion Certificate until payment has been made. Drive times can be postponed due to non-payment as well.
  • To discuss payment arrangements outside of these guidelines, please contact our corporate office at (734) 665-7374.

What is the cancellation/refund policy for the Segment 1 course?

As stated in your contract: ALL refund requests for all services offered are charged a $5 processing fee. No refunds will be given after the first day of class.

Refunds will be processed in full if a class/service is canceled by ASDE. Refunds take 2-3 weeks to process and will be in the form of a check. No refund will be issued if the student is expelled due to disciplinary reasons. To learn more about our discipline policy, please see the question below in our FAQ’s or contact our Corporate Office. There will be a $30 return check fee for all returned checks!

How many students do you allow in one class?

The State laws prohibit us from having more than 36 students attending one class, therefore we must limit our enrollment to 36 students - no exceptions may be made.

What do I need to bring to the first day of class?

Segment One students need to make sure to have the following:

I do not have an original birth certificate.

State documents verifying your age are also appropriate. Examples: passport, state identification card, etc.

Do parents need to attend the first day of class?

It is not necessary for parents to be there on the first day of class with their students as long as the students bring the required paperwork and payment, if needed. We do hold an informational parent meeting. For details, please talk with the classroom instructor.

What is covered in the cost for Segment One?

The price for Segment One includes classroom and drive times, activities, and taxes. The tuition cost does not include Text Book Fee, Gas Surcharge, or the cost of Segment Two. Please call our corporate office if you have questions regarding prices. All charges for the text book and gas are set. They will not vary.

How do the students sign up for driving times? When do the students drive?

Students will be signing up for drive times during the first three days of class. These drive times are in addition to the scheduled classroom times. Segment One is 24 hours of class time, and 6 hours of driving time. All Star wishes to accommodate families and busy schedules by offering a wide variety of drive times, including before and after class and on weekends. All Star does not assign drive times, we allow the students to schedule their own drive times according to when they are able to drive. Please keep proper documentation of these so you can arrive on time. Any changes needed to be made, please contact the classroom instructor.

NOTE: Parents and Guardians! Please make sure that you let your children know what days and times work for you before the first class ­ they must be able to accurately sign up for driving times that fit your schedule as well as theirs. As mentioned before, the students will have the first three days of class to make any changes necessary to their driving schedules, based on any scheduling problems that you foresee.

How many drive times do the students need?

Segment one requires a minimum of 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction with a licensed instructor. Students will need to sign up for six separate sessions which will run for two hours per session. During these two hour sessions, there is one other student in the vehicle along with your student and the instructor (we DO NOT allow more than two students per session). The two students will drive for one hour each during the session. When a student is not driving, they will be using this time to observe and learn by filling out a worksheet in the back seat while the other student drives. (Only 4 hours of observation are required for teens)

Why can't the parent's sign up for the student's drive times?

This is a good question and there are a number of reasons All Star wishes for the student's to sign up for their own drive times. The foremost reason concerns the responsibility: the All Star staff and instructors believe that we aren't just teaching the students how to drive, but educating them on all of the responsibilities that are involved with operating a motor vehicle. Therefore, part of this responsibility includes scheduling and keeping accurate record of their drive times and communicating this schedule to their parents or guardians.

Also, based on the way we have students sign up for driving times, we only have enough space in the classroom for the students and the instructor. Unfortunately, having the parents and guardians in the classroom as well as the students and instructor would be very chaotic and disruptive to your students learning, since the driving times are scheduled during class. We hope you can understand. Any clarification on this can be discussed by calling our corporate office. We want to make sure everyone is accommodated appropriately.

What happens if a student misses a class?

All Star does allow a student to make up three missed classes. If your student misses more than three days of class, they MUST complete the classroom portion of Segment One over again. You will not be asked to re-pay. Please speak with the classroom instructor on the first day of class if you believe that your student may be missing a class during their Segment One session, and the classroom instructor will explain to you and the student on how the days missed will be made up. Classes are able to be made up after the original class has ended. There are no exceptions to this rule.

What if there is a snow day?

If your school district has announced a snow day, All Star's classes (which include driving times) at the respective location will be cancelled as well. Please keep this in mind if you are attending a classroom location other than your own school. If the students driving instructor decides that the road conditions aren’t good enough to drive in later that day, they might be calling you to try and re schedule your original drive times for that day. Please make sure all contact information has been updated with your instructors if you have changes. However, if you do not hear from the driving instructor, then the drive times for that day are cancelled.

What kind of cars do you use?

Primarily American-made, late model midsize sedans with colorful All Star auto wraps for high visibility. Each has right-side brake pedals, giving instructors complete control. Each is cleaned and sanitized regularly and comes with a hand sanitizer and first-aid kit. All undergo constant, detailed inspections.

I am over 18 years old. Can I still take Segment One?

Yes, of course you can! However it is crucial that you first obtain a Temporary Instruction Permit from your local Secretary of State Branch Office. This document will allow you to participate in the driving portion of this class. Your permit will cost $25 and requires that you pass a written exam. You must bring a photocopy of your valid TIP to your first day of class, along with your completed Michigan Adult Segment One Contract found under our Forms link on the home page of our website. If you wish to postpone obtaining your TIP, you will only be allowed to complete the classroom portion of Segment 1.

The green certificate that my student received after Segment One, what does that mean? Is that their Graduated Level One License?

NO! This is the Michigan Graduated Segment One Certificate of Completion - this is NOT a permit and does not allow your son or daughter to drive with an adult or guardian. This document simply verifies that your student has successfully completed the Segment One program through our school and may now apply for their Graduated Level One License through the Secretary of State (a.k.a driving permit). They are only qualified to drive once they have gone to the Secretary of State, and have been issued their permit. Student and parent must be present to obtain this permit.

What do we bring with us to the Secretary of State when we go to get my son/daughter's permit?

Who is my student allowed to drive with when they receive their Graduated Level One License (a.k.a. permit)?

Is my son/daughter allowed to drive out of the State of Michigan with their Graduated Level One License?

Yes, however they must be accompanied by an adult with a valid driver's license. The adult must also be at least 21 years old.

We never went down to the Secretary of State, and received the Graduated Level One License; can't we just show the Segment One completion certificate in order to take Segment Two?

Unfortunately no, you must have went to the Secretary of State, and received your Graduated Level One Learners License at least 3 consecutive months before starting Segment Two. If not, your son/daughter will not be allowed to take Segment Two until they have done so. The other requirement before taking Segment Two is that your son/daughter has completed at least 30 hours of behind the wheel instruction (remember that two of the hours of training must be at night). Please remember that it is very important you go to the Secretary of State immediately after receiving the Segment One completion certificate, so you can get your son/daughters Graduated Level One License as soon as possible. Not doing so, could delay your son/daughter in getting their license on time.

What about the Graduated Level One License (a.k.a. permit)? Does that expire as well?

There is an expiration date on the Graduated Level One - it should be the student's 18th birthday. This is the day that the permit expires and you have until that date to take a road test.

Help! I've lost my Segment One certificate! What can I do?

All Star may reissue the certificate to you if you have lost either the Segment One or Segment Two certificate as long as you took the respective Segment from All Star. We cannot reissue certificates for you, if you attended another driver education school. Reissues of certificates are a $30 fee. Please contact the office immediately to have this reissued. It takes 2 business days to reissue a certificate, so please be sure to allow enough time if you need this by a specific day.

How does online driver’s education work?

You will just need to create an account on our website, www.allstardriveredonline.com. Once all forms are submitted, you will have full access to your course.

You will be contacted by one of our driving instructors within 7 days of registration. Once you have completed 2 hours of the class the driver will be able to schedule your required 8 hours of driving.

What is the Oklahoma Parent Taught Drivers Education (PTDE) Program?

The Oklahoma Parent-Taught Drivers Education (PTDE) program is an alternative to driver’s education in a conventional classroom. This program lets teens take their driver’s education course at your leisure from your own home. It lets parents provide the 55 hours of behind-the-wheel lessons too. Our program is DPS-approved.
