Lesson Structure:

Teen drivers are only permitted to book one lesson per day.

What to expect:

Whether you are a beginner or advanced, all students start in the driver seat. If you have zero experience, your instructor may control the pedals from the passenger side until you get to a parking lot and go over basics. Beginners start in a residential area while intermediate/advanced teen drivers will hone skills in traffic zones. If you have enough driving experience by your 3rd lesson, we will prepare you for the driving test using our driving test simulations.

To get a permit:

If you are under seventeen and a half, you must first go to the DMV, present your certificate of Drivers Education and pass a written exam.

Teen’s procedure to get a driver’s license:

  1. Complete Driver’s Education
  2. Obtain a learner’s permit from DMV after passing a written exam
  3. Take 6 hour behind-the-wheel course to obtain a certificate of completion
