The complete program is designed for teenaged students, but is available to adults as well. The accelerated, six-week teenage course is broken down into three parts: classroom study, behind-the-wheel driving and observation. The course consists of 30 hours of classroom instruction (15 classroom sessions), 10 hours of on-the-road instruction, and 6 hours of in-car observation. To be enrolled a student must turn 16 before the class ends. New classes start approximately every two weeks. Successful completion entitles students 16 to 25 years of age to an insurance discount.
