Maintaining Your Vehicle
If you are a resident of Louisville, Lexington or any other Kentucky district, you can apply for an initial learner’s permit as soon as you turn 16 years old. Holding a learner’s permit is the first phase of Kentucky’s graduated licensing program; if you are successful in your application, you will be qualified to begin learning to drive under the supervision of a licensed adult. Compared to other states, the driver’s education requirements for teenagers in Kentucky are minimal. Completing a four-hour state-licensed drivers ed course, completing 60 hours of practice driving (10 of which must be during darkness) and passing a practical road skills exam is all it takes to qualify for an intermediate license. Though it should be noted that teenagers must have held an untarnished learner’s permit for at least 180 days, before they are eligible to apply.
Becoming a safe, competent and considerate motorist requires a sophisticated understanding of defensive driving techniques, roadway scanning procedures, speed control, drug and alcohol awareness, road rage avoidance, driving in hazardous conditions and maintaining safety in different environments – to name just a few major driver’s ed topics. The state-mandated program cannot cover these subjects in detail, as there simply is not time during a four-hour course. Thankfully, the teen drivers education program we provide covers every essential theory topic in detail, using easily-understood language, carefully organized lessons and hundreds of helpful images. Better yet, it is available for aspiring drivers of all ages to use, 100% free of charge.
In addition to important safety concepts and traffic laws, our Kentucky driver’s education program includes a module dedicated to essential driving maneuvers. Within this module are individual lessons covering the practical driving skills you will be expected to demonstrate during the DMV driving test, such as driving in reverse, emergency braking, executing turns and parking. Using our step-by-step guides to inform your practice of these maneuvers will ensure you are doing everything correctly, when the time comes to sit the driving test. Most Kentucky teenagers receive a fair amount of instruction from licensed parents or guardians before sitting the practical exam. It is unwise to rely exclusively on parental instruction when it comes to essential driving maneuvers, as there is a good chance your parents may have developed bad driving habits since passing their own license exams. If you want to be certain you will pass the assessment first time, we recommend referring to our driver’s education course lessons to make sure you are not picking up bad habits yourself.
Our free Kentucky DMV practice tests can help you gauge what you have learned from the driver’s education course and get used to answering multiple-choice questions, in preparation for the DMV written test. As these quizzes are also available for unlimited use, students can refer to them as many times as they like while working through the teen drivers ed course!
