Young Drivers has a new face on the web in the form of a new online learning program made for students taking the Young Drivers program.
The provincial drivers education course is setting itself apart from other institutions by including an online program called the e-Experience to be implemented with the in class courses for the program.
Maria Bagdonas, Centre Director for the Dryden branch of Young Drivers says with major changes to the requirements for a beginner driver education program through the Ministry of Transportation, a re-vamp of the course was necessary.
“The classroom hours changed and the option to do up to 10 hours online was made available. The curricumlum changed to 30 hours in class [from 25 hours] and stayed at 10 hours in car. Of the 30 hours, 10 hours could be an online type program.”
The program is still in its’ launch phase and students signing up for the Young Drivers program can commence their online training course and their in-class lessons simultaneously. Once the program is in its’ post launch, students will be able to access the online program before going to their in-class sessions to get a head start on the program.
