2. 15 Videos

Driver Ed in a Box® includes 15 videos independently produced by Driver Ed in a Box® from the perspective of a parent and student working together in the vehicle.


3. Instructor Coaching Video Series

A growing library of coaching tips where Patrick Barrett goes into more detail and depth to make your in-vehicle preparation and experience even easier. With these coaching videos, you’ll be teaching like a seasoned pro.




4. 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.




5. Driving Journal

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.





6. 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.




7. 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.



8. We GUARANTEE that your teen will drive COLLISION-FREE! – or your money back!

We guarantee that once you successfully complete all the requirements of the Driver Ed in a Box® course and has been issued a Certificate of Completion you will drive collision free for a full 12 months**. If you have a driver-error collision within one year from the date of completion resulting in a claim being filed and a deductible being paid, we will refund the full amount paid for the program.

You will get instant access to these tools when you order. Do it now and you can feel well on your way to a safe way to practice with your teen.

At Island Driving School, we know that learning to drive collision-free takes more than just learning the techniques. It takes practice. Hours and hours and more hours of practice so that those techniques become habits. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Driver Ed in a Box® to offer you the Parent Tool Kit.

We can’t be with you for every hour you spend practicing in the vehicle. So for those hours you spend at home practicing driving without us, you need the Parent Tool Kit.

It has everything you need to make that extra driving practice effective, safe, and worry-free. If you use the Parent Tool Kit from Driver Ed in a Box® to supplement your extra driving practice, your teen will be a collision-free driver. We guarantee it!

It’s fast, it’s easy, and will make that driving time you have with your teen safe, productive, and stress-free.


Have teamed up to give you the tools you need to supervise your new teen driver’s practice driving and give you peace of mind.

NEW State law now requires that you provide 30 additional hours of supervised practice for your teenager BEFORE your teen is eligible for a driver license. This is IN ADDITION to the minimum 7 hours of behind-the-wheel training and 7 hour of in-vehicle observation already required.

Of course, those minimum hours are not enough hours of training to produce a safe driver. Hence, the additional 30 hour minimum required by the state. That leaves you with 3 choices:


1. You can pay the driving school for an additional 30 hours of training ($1,500 to $3,000)


2. You can do it all on your own, cross your fingers, hold your breath and hope for the best


  • guides you through the process stet-by step
  • takes the pressure off you and your student
  • allows you to easily keep track of your teen’s progress
  • logs the time you work in the vehicle
  • uses videos and audios to make your practice time fun, productive and safe
  • eliminates the guesswork of what to do and how to do it
