Driving in New York – Part 2 – the 5 hour Class

boring class

I attended the mandatory 5 hour Class – which is the pre-licensing course, which goes for, you guessed it, five hours, late last week.

The DMV website says that the class should cover the following subjects:

  • The DMV point system.
  • Rules of the road.
  • Car-restraint systems and the laws of physics.
  • Defensive driving techniques.
  • The effects of attitude, emotions, and skills on driver safety.
  • Drug and alcohol impairment.

However, the course I sat through covered only three areas which were: the rules of the road, defensive driving, and drug and alcohol impairment.

To cut a long, potentially boring post short, I am going to show you the 3 pages of notes I took during class.

After 4 hours, the teacher decided to cut the class short and let us all go home.

The overall message I took away from this $50 class was to never, ever, react to road rage because I may get shot in the face… yep, that’s pretty much it.
