The 42 Part Audio Series
Driver Ed in a Box® features a 42 part audio series for parents to prepare for each stage of in-vehicle training.
Parents can listen while traveling to and from work, running errands, or working around the house. Listen to each section just preceding work on the next area of in-vehicle training, so the information is fresh in your mind as you begin that training phase. Some parents select certain segments of the audio series for the student to listen to before or after beginning a training area. Parents have told us that it often helps for the student to hear the reasons for training methods from another source than the parent.
The Training Mirrors
The round, flat Eye Check Mirror allows the parent to see at a glance where the student`s eyes are focused. Not even most driving school instructors know to use this mirror!
A fixed stare, failure to check the blind spot before moving to a new lane, or failure to check the rear view before slowing are easily detected. This allows the parent to coach the student until the student has developed the correct HABITS of eye movement. Training safety is enhanced by using the convex, rectangular mirror allowing the parent or guardian to see what is happening behind the vehicle, while keeping all vehicle mirrors adjusted for the student.
The Student Driver Sign
Every Driver Ed in a Box® comes with a black and white Student Driver sign that is easily attached and removed from your vehicle, and is optional for your use in most states.
DriverRecent changes require that students document how they’re going to apply what they’ve learned. This Driving Journal allows you to meet this requirement, while giving you an opportunity to record memorable experiences in your driver ed journey.
