COM offering driver's ed, defensive driving courses
Those seeking a convenient option for a ticket dismissal, teen or adult driver’s education course need look no further. College of the Mainland is partnering with SAFETY-USA to offer three online driving courses – Texas Online Defensive Driving, Texas Teen Driver Education Course and Adult Driver Education Online.
Approved by the Texas Education Agency, the six-hour Texas Online Defensive Driving Course is accepted for ticket dismissal by all Texas courts and municipalities, and completers may be eligible for a 10 percent reduction in insurance premiums. The cost is $29.95.
The Texas Teen Driver Education Course meets all DPS requirements and offers options of a parent-taught or virtual instructor-taught version. The cost is $129.95. The Adult Driver Education Online course, costing $65, assists drivers 18-24 years of age in obtaining their first driver’s license. Completers may bypass the DPS written exam and must only complete the driving portion of the DPS exam.
“We have received numerous requests over the years for driving courses,” said continuing education director Carla Boone. “The Continuing Education Department is excited to offer these new courses to our community in response to the need that has been expressed.”
Featuring online text and interactive videos and full audio or read-along text for the hearing impaired, all three courses make it easy to learn at your own pace, any time of day. Courses are available in both English and Spanish and 24/7 customer support is available.
Registration is only available online at tx-dps.com/affiliates/college-of-the-mainland. For more information call 409-933-8586.
