Driver education has become a hot topic in the United States, and not just because the driverless car revolution is finally starting to take off.
The National Center for Education Statistics, which tracks the education of Americans ages 18 and up, reports that driver education is gaining traction across the country.
The national average for driver education schools has risen from 10% in 2010 to more than 23% in 2015, the group said in its 2016 annual report.
NCSE has been the focus of much of the talk since the company launched its first driver education program, a pilot program in Dallas.
The program has helped tens of thousands of drivers pass its driving test, and it’s helped drive some of the largest changes in the industry, from the creation of a standardized driver’s license to driver training and safety equipment.
NC SE launched its pilot program for driver’s education in Dallas in October 2017, and the program was expanded in 2019.
At the time, the company was still looking for the right school to start with.
“We’re really looking for a school that is in-demand for our training programs,” said Dale Dye, NCSE’s vice president of learning.
“This is the only place where we are able to get the best and most qualified people in the country to come in and train.”
The NCSE program was originally developed for the Dallas area, but in the past year, the school expanded to include more of the South and Midwest, as well as other areas like the Northeast and West.
“It’s really a really big deal for us because it really is the first driver-education program for any state in the nation,” Dye said.
“And that’s the reason we are focused on this program.”
The driver education company says it has received thousands of applications and has narrowed down to two schools that will be able to offer driver’s ed to drivers with disabilities.
It will be up to the schools to decide whether to accept the students.
NC-based schools have been working with NCSE to make sure that drivers with certain disabilities are able, but Dye acknowledged that there are still many gaps in the process.
“You have people with certain conditions that are not covered by the NCSE driver education programs that are still getting through,” he said.
Dye pointed out that a number of the driver education companies in the state have a long history of making a positive impact on drivers with mental health issues.
“There are a lot of people that are really frustrated with our program and really don’t want to go through it,” he told Fortune.
“So I think that this is an important opportunity for us to help those people and provide them with the tools they need to get better.”
The program will also be open to students who are in their mid-20s and have a high school diploma or GED.
The driver training companies say they are excited to have the NC-related curriculum integrated into their education, and that NCSE is the right place for the company to launch a driver education pilot program.
“They are the only program in North Carolina that offers the comprehensive driver education training,” Doe said.
NC State University is also the first school in the South to offer the program.
NCSD has been a pioneer in driver education for years.
In the early 2000s, NCSD launched the NCIS Driver Training Academy, which is the largest driver education center in the US.
NCIS has since expanded to other states and is currently the only school in North America to offer its drivers education program.
It is also one of only two U.S. driver education centers that does not require drivers to pass a driving test.
The NCIS program was created in response to the 2008 U.K. crash, in which a driver was killed and several others were injured after a car careened through a bridge.
It helped spark a nationwide pilot program to increase the number of driver education teachers and drivers.
Today, the NCES school is a center of driver training across the U.B.C. and South Dakota, and is one of the top drivers education centers in the world.
“NCSE’s pilot program was a huge success and has provided the perfect opportunity to provide a high-quality and cost-effective driver education experience,” said Dan Hulsey, NCIS CEO.
“With our new curriculum and the partnership with NCIS, NC State has taken another important step toward making driver education accessible to everyone.”
