In the concurrent method, 6 hours of online classroom & state permit exam are completed. Then the learner’s license is received.
After receiving a learner’s license, the student continues the remaining online classroom while also developing their driving skills behind-the-wheel until the course is completed. The next step is receiving the driver’s license.
In the block method, all online classroom is completed first. Then the learner’s license is received and the student focuses solely on driving.
Example: A 14-year-old can spend a year focusing only on the 32 hours of online classroom. Then at 15, receive a learners license and concentrate the whole next year only on the driving instruction and practice until they are 16.
During the behind-the-wheel instruction, the student will be in the driver’s seat and demonstrate what they have observed from their parent/instructor.
The driving portion is included with both the concurrent and blocked methods. For individuals that only need the driving portion, this is exactly what you need to complete drivers ed.
