    The course was highly informative and should be highly recommended to all drivers, old or young, entry-level, or experienced. The information in this course could save lives and avoid or limit unnecessary fines.


    Coming from out of state, this was very useful to clarify Delaware specific rules. The presentation style was very effective. I did notice that the video and written text did not always match ( it seemed some of the text had additional detail added to the end ).. the final test was not as defined in Chapter 16. Instead of 10 questions selected from the 45 reviewed, it was 25 questions, and from some other previously covered content that was not included in chapter 16. However, overall, it was really helpful to me.

    Easy and informative

    Aside from sitting through videos, when I can read faster than the speaker of the video and still had to wait till the time was up to get to next chapter, it was a simple course. Very informative and easy to follow with multiple chances to review test questions. This made it easy to succeed in the course.

    Great program

    Great program, a lot of content but easy to comprehend, the videos are clear and text very precise. I do recomend to those who want to learn more about safety driving and also receiving the benefits. Thanks
