San Macros, California (PressExposure) September 03, 2008 -- When a person is first learning to drive, they must obtain a DMV Florida learners permit. National Driver Safety Services (NDSS), operating through the http://www.florida-firsttimedriverscourse.com web site, offers students a FL first time driver course that can be taken entirely online. The course, which is approximately four hours in length, provides students with the course material necessary in order to earn their DMV Florida learners permit without having to set foot in a traditional classroom.
âThereâs no reason for our students to turn their busy schedules upside-down just to take a course,â a representative from NDSS explains. âIn this day and age, with so much available to us online, the logical next step is a course for first-time drivers. After all, getting to a brick and mortar classroom is especially difficult with a student doesnât have a driverâs license.â
The course has been divided into 20-minute segments, and students are encouraged to work at their own pace, on as many or few units as they are able to in each sitting. They work on the material independently of the other students, and may move ahead of or lag behind one another without worrying about anyone needing to wait for anyone else. Once they have completed all the course material, they will take a 40-question final exam, which they must pass in order to receive their certificate of completion. The certificate is mailed to the student and can then be used to obtain a learnerâs permit.
âWeâre pleased to be able to provide a service like this to our students,â the representative continues. âIt takes advantage of all the conveniences available to us on the world wide web, and allows our students to focus on safety and the points in the instructional material rather than worrying about how theyâll catch a ride to class.â
