Gersh Academy Driver Education Extended Program

Specifically designed as a one-of-a-kind program for people that need that extra learning experience to learn how to drive and ultimately get their driver’s license since a traditional driver education program is not designed for the roadblocks and situations that can arise from a student that needs extra attention.  The classes are smaller compared to a neuro typical program. No more than 12 students to a classroom vs 36 and no more than 3 students in a car vs 4. Also, class length is 1.5 hours vs 3 hours.  The Gersh Driver Education Extended Program takes their students on a journey across (5) phases of training utilizing a smooth transition from phase to phase. The entire program is (52) weeks.
