ADTSEA On-Line Driver Education Program

Frequently Asked Questions



Q.  Can the on-line program be used to supplement classroom instruction?


A. Yes, ADTSEA’s On-Line Driver Education Program was designed to supplement classroom, skill and behind-the-wheel training.


Q.   Does the student receive their permit or license after completing the course by taking a final exam?


A.  No, the student does not receive their permit or license through ADTSEA after completing the course.  They will need to go to their local Department of Motor Vehicles and complete the knowledge and/or skills testing there to receive their permit or license. 


Q.   How long does the course last?


A.  This is up to the instructor.  The instructor determines the length of the course.  As well as when and for how long the student can view units or complete quizzes.  The instructor can open and close units, activities and quizzes when they want to.  ADTSEA is simply providing a template.  It is up to the instructor to customize the course to their needs.


Q.  When does the student meet their instructor if supplementing the classroom instruction with the on-line program?


A.  This is up to the instructor to determine when they would like the student to meet the instructor.  The instructor may want to have a few face-to-face classroom instruction classes, then complete the on-line program and then come back together for the behind-the-wheel portion.  The instructor can even continue to have a complete classroom instruction and supplement with the on-line program by having the student’s do some of the activities or assignments at home as well.


Q.   Does the student receive a certificate from ADTSEA after completion of the course?


A.  No, the instructor does not receive a certificate from ADTSEA after completion of the course.  The driver education school would still need to issue a certificate if they wish. 


Q.   Can someone come to my facility and teach me how to use the on-line course?


A.  Yes, ADTSEA can provide a two day course at your facility.  The fee for the course would be $3,200 plus travel expenses for the trainer.  We also provide free on-line instructor training.  As part of the training you will complete the ADTSEA course by reading the course content and completing the quizzes as a student would.  Then at the end of the course you will complete additional units, which will give you guidance on how to use the course as an instructor.  The training is self-paced and you can complete it on your own time.  Training support will be provided through ADTSEA, as needed, as you complete the on-line instructor training.
