Online driving courses contain text, videos and animations to create an interesting and interactive online experience. The lessons include all of the traditional driving safety information, such as the correct method of overtaking another vehicle. They also provide some additional helpful information on dealing with accidents, highway emergencies, or how to be safe around unsafe drivers on the road. The course lasts approximately 8 hours and contains several chapters, each chapter covering a different aspect of driving safety.
At the end of each chapter is a quiz on that topic. The questions can be multiple choice, fill in the blanks, or other types of questions based on the material just covered. The answers are scored instantly online so that if the answer is wrong, the material can be viewed and the exam retried. The final exam must be taken upon completion of the course and must be a pass to receive the certificate by mail.
