From using the safest cars with GPS monitoring technology to our innovative curriculum, All Star has always led the way in driver education with our Customer First approach. Last week, All Star Driver Education held a demo with the State of Michigan, showcasing our ability to deliver classes via videoconferencing technology. We are happy to share that the State of Michigan has approved us to offer Segment 1 and Segment 2 classes via videoconference to our customers during the COVID-19 stay home stay-safe order.
We are offering videoconferencing-based Segment 1 and Segment 2 classes at multiple convenient time slots via Zoom video conferencing to our current March and April customers. We are limiting our class to only 20 students per video conference link to make sure our instructors can keep the students engaged, so please sign up quickly for the time that works best for you.
Students will work through our proprietary curriculum with a certified instructor on a Zoom conference video conferencing – complete with the ability to raise a hand, ask questions and participate in discussions. Students must have access to a computer or laptop with a camera and video capability in order to participate via video conference.
After finishing the virtual class, and once restrictions are lifted, the students will participate in a week-long review, followed by taking the final exam at a physical location. It is important to note that the state has extended the time to finish the required drives, so do not worry about not being able to drive right away. We will schedule one-on-one drives with our instructors once the stay home-stay safe order is lifted.
Sharing this exciting news, Rick Van Pelt, President and COO of All Star Driver Education said, “These are difficult times and people are anxious about the future. It is important that we follow the guidelines provided to us to stay safe and stay healthy. We should also stay positive. Start thinking and planning beyond the current situation. We see that a lot of our customers are thinking ahead to the summer and our summer classes are filling up very quickly.”
We are working very hard here at All Star to continue to deliver the same top-notch driver education to students that we always have, and are very happy with the ability to do so via videoconferencing technology! We hope that you are as excited as us about using this time off to help your student learn about driver education and becoming a safe and responsible driver in our video conference classes.”
March customers should have already received the links to sign-up for Segment 1 and Segment 2 video conference classes. If you have not please write to: [email protected] for more information on how to get started.
