Our Programs

All drivers/students ages 15 – 25 are required to complete a minimum 30-hour driver education course (or more if required by student’s state of residence). This course can be completed in a traditional classroom setting or virtual online class. This will ensure that the student becomes fully aware of all safety issues, requirements on the road, and valuable technical information prior to training behind the wheel, resulting in a higher standard of education for all students.

Additionally, all drivers/students ages 15 – 25 are required to complete a 10-hour behind the wheel driving course with a driving school certified by the Driver Education Foundation of America.
