Our adult lessons are for any students over the age of 18 years old. These behind the wheel lessons are all one-on-one. We pick up and drop off at home for these appointments. Please note, no one else is permitted in the vehicle during the lesson besides the student and instructor. This means NO INTERPRETERS or CHILDREN. Our driving instructor for our adult lessons is a male. We do have the right to refuse any student/adult if we feel as if you are a danger behind the wheel. All lessons must be paid before or on the day of the lesson IN CASH. We will practice maneuverability with you while you are with us.
**These lessons are just that, lessons. These do not qualify for the Abbreviated Adult Driver Training Program. See below for more information. **
How many lessons does it take to pass the final exam?
We are asked this question daily. It is impossible to tell you how many lessons it will take, as every person is different. It typically takes about 50 hours of good, steady practice. Steady meaning you must practice daily. 10 mins daily is more beneficial than 3 hours once a week. It is similar to learning how to walk, if you didn’t put your feet on the ground every day, you would be completely starting over every time.
*1.5 hours $75*
5-hour package $225
(divided up into 3 days)
10-hour package $400
(divided up into 6 days)
*Car Rental for exam $75*
Please note that every student MUST complete the initial 1.5 hour check out ride BEFORE they can choose one of our package deals. At the conclusion of this lesson the instructor will give you an overview of how you performed and will give you a suggestion as to how many more lessons you may need in order to pass the final exam. You are not obligated to purchase additional lessons, however, you may if you choose.
*We offer our students the ability to rent one of our vehicles for the final exam AFTER they have already taken a lesson with us. It has to be scheduled a head of time, and is a 2-hour long block. We will pick the student up an hour before the exam, do a mini-lesson, take them to the test, and then back home. Cost is $75. *
In order to schedule an appointment, you MUST have a validated temporary permit. (Please have it in front of you when you call, we need your license number & issue date before scheduling). Failure to appear with the proper temporary permit, payment, or failure to cancel within a 24-hour notice will result in a $25.00 fee being assessed to your account.
We drive Monday – Thursday between 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer nights/weekends at this time.
Please note that we usually book several weeks out for these appointments.
