WHAT WE ENCOURAGE FROM PARENTS OR GUARDIANS:
We encourage you to drive with the student. Even 5 to 10 minutes daily will assist in developing skills. Driving with an experienced driver will improve skills and produce a safer driver on the road.
We suggest you enroll your student at 15. The new state law requires those under 18 years of age to have their permit for at least 6 months prior to applying for their license.
We can provide the classroom and vehicle instruction, but the most important element is judgment, which parents or guardians must evaluate.


ATTENDANCE POLICIES:
Students must attend 30 hours of classroom instruction and have 6 hours of one-on-one, behind the wheel training.
Students who do not pass the classroom final must continue attending the course on the next consecutive day (not during an orientation) and re-take the final until the final is passed at 80% or higher.
