Modern Approaches to Traffic Safety offers State approved courses to become and maintain State certification as a driving instructor.
Qualified driving instructors are essential in all states to provide driver education to teens and other inexperienced drivers. They teach driving laws and safety rules in classroom settings before taking students on the road for hands-on training. Instructors prepare new drivers for the testing required to obtain a driver permit or license. In Florida, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is responsible for certifying driving instructors.
