Eric Agazim Prepares Free Driver's Education Classes For Low-Income Students

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Driving is a privilege every American should be able to exercise. But many low-income families do not have the luxury of sending their children to drivers education classes. The price for these courses can become high, but one resident hopes to solve that problem. Eric Agazim wants to host free drivers education classes for students of low-income families.

"Teens should become taught the proper driving system and learn all of the laws," says Agazim. "Just because a family cannot afford these classes does not mean the teenager shouldn't learn."

Agazim wants all drivers to be safe, especially the rookie ones. Classes are offered by organizations throughout the city but at a high price. Agazim wants every teen driver to learn, no matter if they can afford courses or not.

Technology Can Become Distractions For Young Drivers
With today's technology, it's easy for drivers to become distracted behind the wheel. This fact is even more true for teenagers. While many teenagers can pass the driver's exam when they reach a certain age, they do not know the dangers of driving distracted. While Agazim hopes to provide proper driving education, he also wants to spread awareness of the dangers of driving while looking at cell phones or other distractions in the car.

The free two-hour session plans to cover driving safety for both parents and teens. Agazim believes combining the parents and the student for one class will make sure everyone is on the same page. Also, parents will learn about the forty hours of required supervised driving time.

"Parents should know what their children are taught in drivers education," says Agazim. "Having the parents included in the class will make sure everyone is on the same page."

Each student will learn about the state's driving laws, including a take-home packet with practice tests and the official driver's lawbook. During the session, students and parents will have the opportunity to ask questions.

The course will address the driver's attitude, knowledge, and behavior. While regular technical hands-on driver training will take place, Agazim wants to focus on the mental part of driving.

"For a young teenager, driving can be scary and intimidating," adds Agazim. "Hopefully this course will ease their minds, but also force them to think about the proper methods of driving."

Also, the course will focus on seat belts, crash dynamics, laws of the road, parental influence, and peer pressure.

Interactive Class For Students And Parents
Rather than watching a video or taking notes, Agazim wants the class to be interactive for both the parents and students. Questions are encouraged throughout the session.

"I do not want these students to feel like they are taking another class of notes and videos," says Agazim. "This is about safe driving and extremely important to their well-being."

Many residents in the community have expressed their joy to Agazim's idea. Most of these families cannot afford the high bill of a former driving class. Another downfall of these expensive courses becomes the lack of one-on-one teaching. Students are just another number to the instructor. Sometimes, they get lost in the shuffle.

"These free courses will start small, therefore meaning more time is focused on each student," explains Agazim. "Not every student will master at the same pace as others. They shouldn't be left behind because driving affects everyone on the road. They should learn the same amount and understand fully."

Parents should look out for exact dates and locations of these classes hosted by Agazim. He is also working with the city's police department for guest speakers and interactive learning for the students.

"Any help I can receive from the city would be great for the parents and students," says Agazim.
