Driver Safety Resources from Drivers Ed Direct

At Drivers Ed Direct, we believe drivers education doesn't end the day you get your license. The truth is, the first 500 miles that a Santa Cruz teen drives by themselves are the most dangerous miles they will ever drive in their lives. Teens will still need guidance from their parents and their driving school many months after they earn their driving privilege. Parents and teens can take advantage of the many resources available at Drivers Ed Direct designed to keep our students throughout Monterey Bay Area, past and present, informed and up to date with current driving laws and issues. We are committed to ensuring the well-being of future driving adults from Harbor High School, Pacific Collegiate School, Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School, Cypress Charter School or Delta Charter.
