Pros of Drivers Ed During COVID


I started my drivers training last week. It was different than usual, because of course like everything, it had to be changed up due to the virus. It is all on Zoom so far, and we have it three days a week, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Each class is two hours, 3:30-5:30, and they are all on Zoom. You cannot be 10 minutes or more late to the Zoom, or else you will not be let in. If you miss the meeting, you will have to start over doing all of the classes.

Learning how to drive on Zoom isn’t the best thing, but there are some pros and conveniences. Some people even prefer it on Zoom. Mia Bragg (9) said, “The good things about learning on zoom is that we can learn from the comfort of our homes and have more resources than if we were in person. There isn’t really anything bad.” One of the reasons Driver’s Ed is good on Zoom is because it is convenient. You don’t have to go anywhere, and it’s easy to quickly log on and start learning. You get a 5 minute break halfway through the class, so you can have a snack and take a break.

Another reason why drivers training is easier is that you have more time to get things done. For example, I have basketball practice right after drivers training. Usually, you’d have to skip things you have to do, but especially since the season is starting soon, it is really important that I get to practice. Since it is on Zoom, I could already be where I need to be right when the meeting finishes.

Something else that is convenient about learning to drive on Zoom is the fact that we get more things done. We are required to read one or two chapters before class starts the next day, so that once we are in class, we are all ready to discuss. This makes it easier to cover more topics, and be more prepared for once we start to drive. So all in all, learning on Zoom can be bad in some ways, but there are some good things about it too.
