Adults can need driver's training if their driving skills are a bit lacking, if they are upgrading to a large vehicle from something very compact, or if they now have a physical condition that may limit their mobility or slow down their reflexes. A person may also have a number of tickets or citations and may now be required to take added training, or may need to do so in order to lower their insurance rates. Whatever your needs for driving school, note a few important questions you might ask before you sign up, so you know you get the right class for your needs and actually improve your skills behind the wheel.
Ask about physical limitations
If you do have any physical limitations, be sure you note these before signing up for any classes. You may need to take special classes that address these limitations, or may need special hardware that assists you behind the wheel. A driving instructor may also need to know about any special equipment you need, whether that's a block for the wheels to reach them more easily, a knob for easier turning of the steering wheel, and the like. They may be able to accommodate those devices, but may need to know about your special needs beforehand, to ensure your limitations are considered during class.
Ask about age limitations
A driving school may not always accommodate senior citizens, or may have special classes for those who are elderly. Someone with very slowed reactions or physical limitations may need added training by an instructor who is especially sensitive to the needs of seniors, and smaller classes for more personalized instruction. Whatever the case, always ask if there are special needs or classes for those who are of retirement age.
Ask what happens if you don't pass the class
Most driver's training will involve some type of test or exam at the end; if you need to take the class because your license is restricted or revoked, or in order to get a reduction on your insurance rates, it may be required that you get a certain score on that exam. Ask what happens if you don't pass, and if you get a refund or some type of credit for another class. This can ensure that you get additional training or aren't charged for a class that isn't as helpful to you, and can do what's necessary to get the training you need in particular to be safe and skilled behind the wheel.
