Course Topics and Descriptions
Section 1: Basic Control Tasks
We think it’s very important that you pay attention here because you’re going to perform the maneuvers described in this section in front of your driving proctor. We’ve made it as fun and interactive as possible. After all, we’re your fun traffic school provider! You’re going to learn all of the basic control tasks that are in a vehicle with automatic transmission. We use visuals to show you how to turn, park, pass and more. Not to mention, we’ll show you the proper braking and acceleration techniques that will save you a lot of dirty looks in the future.
Section 2: Traffic Control Devices & Laws
Don’t be scared away by all of the different traffic signs out there. They’re meant to help you and we’re here to help break it all down for you. By the end of this section, you’ll be a traffic sign expert! Do you ever wonder how drivers are able to tell what to do and what not to do on the roads? There aren’t traffic signs out there that have full sentences for people to read. That would just take way too long! That’s why there are different colors and shapes to let people know the rules of the road that they’re driving on. We’ll teach you all about them!
Section 3: Perception & Driving Strategies for Different Environments
You’re going to encounter some crazy drivers out there. They’re not as smart as you and they don’t follow the rules of the road! We’re going to teach you different defensive driving techniques to use to keep yourself, your passengers and other drivers safe. We do this by providing you with good management skills on speed, space and visibility. Not only will we teach you defensive driving strategies, we’re also going to make sure that you know how to drive in different environments, such as urban and rural areas and expressways. You’re not going to be driving the same way in every place, so it’s important to adapt your driving behavior to your surroundings.
Section 4: Operating in Adverse Conditions
In Ohio, the weather can be wishy washy. You know this! That’s why we want you to know how to operate a vehicle in adverse conditions. When you can, you should avoid driving in bad weather. It’s just not worth getting into a crash! However, we are realistic and we do know that people drive in bad weather regardless. Sometimes, you won’t be able to control it because you might already be in the car driving when bad weather approaches. We’re going to show you how to drive as safely as possible in conditions, such as rain, snow, low lighting and nighttime conditions. It can be scary, but with the right knowledge and training, you’ll know exactly what to do at any given time–rain or shine!
Section 5: Driver Fitness
No, we’re not going to teach you how to do jumping jacks in your car. Instead, we’re going to talk about a different kind of fitness. That is, whether you’re fit enough mentally and physically to drive safely. We’ll go over what kind of physical and emotional or mental ailments can hinder you from driving safely. For example, fatigue is never a good feeling when you’re operating a vehicle. You might then be tempted to drink an energy drink to wake you up, but an excess of caffeine isn’t good either! This leads us into the discussion of drugs and alcohol. We also discuss how certain emotions spark mental distractions. That’s why it’s best to save the juicy gossip when you’re outside of the car. This section is all about deciding whether or not you’re fit to drive based on your overall physical, emotional and mental health.
Section 6: Owning & Maintaining a Car
We don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news, but we’re a traffic school so we need to teach you about the responsibilities of owning a car. You have to be ready to shell out some cash if you’re ready to own a car. It’s not just gas money that needs to be spent. You also have to be aware that there’s maintenance costs, too. You need to get your oil changed in time before your engine gets ruined. You also need to make sure that your registration is up to date so that your car is legal to drive. Don’t worry if you don’t have a car yet. We have tips for you all, too! In fact, the people who wrote this course wished they had this knowledge when they went to get a car.
