What Does AMA Driver Education Teach In the Classroom?

Our New Driver programs offer the most up-to-date content and curriculum you’ll find anywhere, and we maximize learning through hands-on activities and interactive content.

That means, our programs are very visual, incorporating videos and demonstrations that show proper driving techniques so that our students are well prepared for their in-vehicle lessons.
