CARLSBAD, Calif., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- I DRIVE SAFELY, the nation's leading provider of driver education training, announced today its entrance to the Behind-the-Wheel driver training market, with the addition of a brand new 2013 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Autobahn edition.
Having provided top rated online drivers education programs for over 15 years, the addition of the behind-the-wheel training helps new drivers complete state mandated training programs by providing a full service training package from start to finish.
"This marks I DRIVE SAFELY's first step into the world of Behind-the-Wheel training. I'm proud to say that we are now a full-service driver education provider," states George Montgomery, CEO of I DRIVE SAFELY. "It is a logical progression in providing teens, and their parents, a streamlined and unified training program that fulfills the state requirements while providing the most complete safety program in the market for new drivers."
After careful consideration, as well as significant input from I DRIVE SAFELY students on Facebook and the Express Lane Blog, the Autobahn edition of the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta GLI became the official I DRIVE SAFELY vehicle. With Edmunds ratings of 4/ 5 stars for overall front crash protection, and 5 / 5 for overall side impact protection, the GLI embodies everything that I DRIVE SAFELY stands for while providing a more interesting learning environment for student drivers.
The initial rollout of the behind-the-wheel drivers training program will be in Southern California; with other markets added as part of the phased national rollout plan.
Previously, I DRIVE SAFELY announced the release of their Driving School Management System (DSMS) for affiliated independent driver training schools to manage their training programs and for I DRIVE SAFELY students to easily schedule their behind-the-wheel curriculum following the successful completion of the on-line training. The I DRIVE SAFELY operated driver training program augments these affiliated schools to provide better coverage across the country.
