Product Description

2-disc DVD set Rules of the Road: Interactive Driver's Ed Course. DVD's Very good condition, no scratches. Jewel case is a bit worn though

Review

I felt the entire DVD was an excellent resource for all new drivers. I really enjoyed how it was done more from a student's perspective. Teen-to-teen interactions will hopefully have a bigger impact. I was very impressed by [Rules of the Road]. It's something I think every teenager should see before driver's ed. It's also very helpful to parents. --Wendy Forbes, Ohio Department of Public Safety

Rules of the Road is an interactive driver's educational course on two DVDs, ideal for teenagers but also useful for adults seeking to refresh their driving knowledge and awareness. Disc 1 is specifically prepared to help the viewer pass the written driving test with flying colors, as well as sample the Virtual Driver experience to heighten awareness of one's surroundings. From parallel parking to highway merging, night driving, right-of-way rules, and more, the viewer is guided through everything he or she absolutely must know before getting behind the wheel. Disc 2 includes a complete behind-the-wheel curriculum ideal for assisting parents and teachers, enhanced with tips on auto safety, car maintenance, preventing road rage, and what to do in case of an emergency. A bonus of nine printable drive packets spanning ninety-five pages, as well as eight interactive practice DMV written tests round out this enthusiastically recommended addition to school and community library collections. Rules of the Road is also the perfect gift for any teen who has just turned old enough to start learning how to drive! --James Cox, Midwest Book Review

Not to be confused with Jumby Bay Studios' 2003 title of the same name, this new Rules of the Road represents a complete overhaul, featuring hours of new content, as well as printable guides, quizzes, and interactive DMV written exams, all aimed at helping budding motorists. Featuring credible teen hosts, this two-disc set is designed to create safe drivers by instilling good driving habits early, following three teens and their parents as they go through the progressive phases of driving instruction. Rules of the Road covers all aspects of driving, from getting-to-know-your-car basics to behind-the-wheel skills, combining live-action sequences and computer graphics in order to demonstrate a wide range of driving situations, including driving in hazardous conditions. Although aimed at teens, the program also supports parents, recognizing the fact that tensions often flare between the generations during the driver training period (some of these head-to-head confrontations are acted out here, followed by examples of healthier interactions). Chockfull of solid information smartly presented in an entertaining and comprehensive package (which includes a Spanish subtitles option), this is highly recommended. Editor's Choice. --C. Block, Video Librarian, Volume 24, Issue 2

This 2 disc dvd did not disappoint. It gave lots of informative information. Information on how to adjust mirrors, how to break in emergencies, how far you should be from the steering wheel and on and on. There are pretests to see what you know. A word of caution though. Don't let the beginning turn you off. It seems like it's going to be a cheesy boring experience at first. But, once you give it time it's great to help with driving situations. There's a segment on different types of parking which is nicely shown by student drivers then in graphical animation. It tells you where you should be looking when driving. This is helpful so that you'll widen your visual scope. I would definitely give this to new drivers, old pros, or kids about to get their license.

I have already learned so much from this DVD. They cover the material in a way that doesn't make me fall asleep. Although the acting is pretty bad, it is still a great learning resource.

Having no knowledge on how driving works outside of the arcade, I found this video to fill in all the gaps. Vehicular manslaughter was thankfully avoided in large part to the wisdom bestowed by this video. It even covers what to do in the event of brake failure or an ice skid.

Although my teen makes me angry, while cutting up as he watches this. It is very informative and done well. Some things are a bit of a bore, but it helps supplement reading the manuals in a more interesting way. Also, on the first DVD, it freezes in one spot, but not at a critical part. It still should not freeze though and the DVD has no marks or scratches on it.

Am a professional driving instructor and use it in every classroom instruction. Students enjoy the interactive part and ease of understanding. Only complaint is that the student driving with her mother takes her eyes off the road to look at her mother when talking and driving. This is distracted driving and my students pick this up every time I show that clip.

Teaching Son #1 to drive and I have 4 to follow suit over the years... this DVD covers the basics very well with material that would be hard to do without video. For example there's one lesson about alcohol and they have you young fellow drink 5 or 6 beers, measuring his reaction, cognitive and motor skills. He gets progressively worse, yet all the while he maintains that he is fine to drive. Very dramatic and effective to the young adult.

There were a few lesson or lesson point that I would not have thought of and the DVD was a good reminder.

Overall, I am glad I made this purchase. I am certain to get my money's worth of the next decade or so. :-)

...there is a major flaw in the copy of this video I checked out from my local library. During the virtual driving test, the car following the driver signals to turn left but when questioned on the test the correct answer is given as the driver was turning right. This confused me and I reviewed that part three times. I went to my own mirror and emulated the turn for myself and the video is in error.

Think of it this way, the car trailing behind you is facing the same direction you are, not the opposite direction, "wysiwyg-what you see is what you get" in the rearview mirror.
