Classroom Drivers Ed is Usually Taught by Non-Experts
Most people who teach drivers education haven’t actually devoted their careers to helping students learn driving fundamentals. They usually have other passions, but were recruited to teach students because the school didn’t really have anybody more qualified.
Since drivers ed isn’t their primary passion, these individuals don’t have enough enthusiasm about the material to really make it interesting to students. The result is a teacher who is simply going through the motions, teaching a bored class that isn’t learning effectively. At In & Out Driving School we have devoted our future to educating tomorrows leaders. Our instructors have the knowledge necessary to make this happen.

What is the GDL Program?
Graduated Driver's License -
The Colorado Graduated Driver's License program is designed to give new drivers responsibility that matches their experience. Many teens have been killed in collisions related to distraction and late hour driving especially after late hours. Although not directly reflected in the current restrictions, late hour fatalities increase on Friday and Saturday nights. These restrictions are truly put into place to keep your teen safer as they gain driving experience.
Real numbers show that teen deaths decreased in a large percentage after this program was put in place. Licensed teen drivers cannot have passengers under the age or 21 in the vehicle for the first 6 months unless a parent or other licensed adult driver is in the vehicle.
If after the first six months you feel your teen is responsible enough to drive unsupervised with friends, he or she may do so with only one passenger under the age of 21 in the front seat. Siblings and medical emergencies are exceptions.
