TEEN LEARN TO DRIVE - Ages 16-18 $250.00 (4 hours over 2 consecutive days; usually a Saturday & Sunday morning)

 This is NOT part of the Teen Licensing Program. If the parent is unable to start their child behind the wheel, we offer this program as their initial hours behind the wheel. Our policy is that the student drive with their parent on the road at least 5 hours before starting the group lessons.We understand that this task might be difficult for some families. Making sure your child understands the controls of the vehicle is important to it’s safe operation. Having the privacy of one-to-one gives comfort to the learning process.

To sign up for this extra service the student must have completed the 30 hour classroom portion and have a valid permit to drive. Please call the office during daytime hours to schedule.

YOUNG ADULT LEARN TO DRIVE - Ages 19-30 $400.00 (6 hours over 4 consecutive days; usually a Saturday THRU Wednesday mornings)

Client must have another adult who is willing to take on the task of letting the applicant drive their car to practice. This program is for the teen who never learned to drive as a teen, but introduces them to the operation of the vehicle and its operation on the road. Depending on the individual, this should get the client ready to continue their learning process with thier sponsor/parent. The sponsor/parent will then continue the learning process until the client has developed the skills and confidence to drive thru traffic. Once they have reached this point they may want to sign up for the Young Adult Licensing Program.


YOUNG ADULT LICENSING PROGRAM (18-30) PACKAGE: $350. (NO insurance benefit)

This is for the individual who can drive. They are looking for a few “brush up” classes to help them pass their road test. they are not interested in the Insurance discounts. Upon accessment of the client’s skills we will include them in the school’s group test when they are ready.

The ROAD TEST FOR LICENSING looks at your skills in maneuvering the vehicle through traffic, Pulling in and out of traffic safely, turning around safely, backing up safely, and parallel parking the vehicle. NOTE: safely is the key word in this test. Most do not drive remembering all the safe steps in a maneuver.
