ALL this is just the tip of the iceberg- we offer incentives and prizes and teach in an unique manner!
  1. AFTER the third day of class, students will take the written permit test, so they can go to the DPS. We strongly recommend teens DO NOT drive with their parents or adults until after they have driven with the Driving School.
  2. 14 hours In- Car: The driving program is a total of 14 hours that is seven driving hours and seven observing hours. When available we drive before and after classroom hours/on weekends and holidays. Option is given to hold last lesson as a review lesson before probation period ends. There is no cost for observation hours.
  3. If you owe money of any kind or have missed classes, you may have to wait to get your driving permit or drive hours. We have six months to complete driving. We strive to complete driving within 60 days of the last classroom date.
    After the School requirements are met:
  1. Teens are to drive with their parents/guardian/authorized adults and fill out a 30-hour log. Log no more than one hour per day, driving both day and nighttime. Daytime is before 6 p.m. and nighttime is after 6 p.m.
