Most parents want their teen drivers to have a “safe car” as their first car, but even the safest cars in the world cannot protect a young, inexperienced driver who has not been properly trained. This is one of the ideas that led to the creation of the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy in Los Angeles.
Mercedes-Benz’s academy is a state-certified teen driver training and education center. The program includes 30 hours of interactive online courses, classroom sessions, and workshops to help familiarize new drivers with situations and rules of the road before getting behind the wheel. The course also includes 16 hours of behind the wheel training with professionals who coach students to help them make decisions for themselves on the road.
The program comes with what may seem like a steep price tag to many, $1390, yet it provides an education that may prove to be priceless.
