I signed up with DriversEd.com not to long ago for $100.00. I am 18 years old and I need to receive my drivers permit, so to prepare I thought that taking a drivers ed course would be a good idea. I did some research and found DriversEd.com - I immediately jumped on them because at the time they looked good ... until I went to the DMV.
Before I signed up with them I questioned them about whether or not they were approved by the state of Texas for adult drivers education, they said yes but they are NOT. On their website they claim that they serve all 50 states for adults and they don't. (See screen shot image: http://yfrog.com/49adultj)
Okay, so like I was saying the Texas DMV does not approve their courses! The woman informed me that the only website approved drivers ed courses were linked in a .pdf file on the DMV website, and that there is only ONE (1) website they approve of -- and by the way it's about $50.00 cheaper than DriversEd.com. *To be fair, I got 20% for their "Winter Special" but every time I have visited their website they run a special for that month or that season ... evidently it's not really a "special," now is it? Still the website approved by the DMV is much cheaper for adults.
They are frauds and I would recommend that you do NOT use them. I can't speak for the teenage portion of the website, however, with the information I have given you I would strongly recommend that you visit your local DMV and request a list of THEIR STATE approved schools including online schools.
If you go to the Texas DMV website: http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/DriverLicense/
You may read their article for "New law affects 18 to 24 year-old driver license applicants (PDF)"
and in that there is a link to the list of approved courses.
Good Luck to you all with getting your license! Please be more cautious than I was.
