Driver Ed in a Box – The Textbook is a 362+
page textbook. The textbook is available in electronic format
or paper format. This textbook is written by nationally recognized
driver training expert, Patrick L.

the concepts that will be taught and practiced in the vehicle.
The textbook is divided into 3 sections:

to take you from point A to point B safely and easily. You

adverse conditions, and handling emergencies. This section
matches up with what you are learning on the videos, and goes right along with what you are actually experiencing as
you work behind-the-wheel with your parent/coach. The Check
Lists and Coaching Tips in the Parent Companion
that your parent/coach is using also match the textbook.
