Driving Lessons Explained
Evaluation Driving Lesson - The Evaluation Driving Lesson allows for assessment of your son or daughter's readiness for all the driving lessons. You may choose to have us teach this lesson or you may teach it.
Final Driving Lesson - State requires 6 hours of behind-the-wheel driving lessons. Our program has been state approved to allow parents to teach all driving lessons but the last one. This drive is called the Final Driving Lesson and must be taught by one of our certified driving instructors. This lesson serves to decide whether the student has passed or failed the behind-the-wheel driving portion of the course by testing them through all driving levels. If they pass, their driver education certificate is released to the DOT. If they fail, another Final Driving Lesson must be scheduled.
Other Four Driving Lessons - Downtown, Parking, Highway, and Interstate Driving Lessons are as titled. More detailed information to each driving lesson will be emailed to you upon completion of registration.
