We offer Saturday and Sunday classes as well as week long classes. In these classes students learn about traffic rules and regulations, defensive driving, alcohol and drug usage, and many other important topics that relate to driving. 

Permit Test

Students will be given the permit test on the 4th week of class if they meet the requirements described below. Students will be given up to 4 permit tests.  If the student does not meet a requirement to take the test, they are welcome to take the test with us when the requirements are met.

6 Hours of Behind the Wheel Driving Lessons

Students will be given three 2-hour long lessons.  These lessons will be with one of our state approved and regulated, patient, friendly, instructors.  Each lesson is done in one of our dual controlled cars. 

Program Entry Requirements

Program Benefits

By learning to drive sooner, students can be safer on the road for years to come. Insurance companies may also recognize the benefit of instructional courses - They may offer discounts on premiums for young drivers who have graduated from driving school. Those who participate in American Driving School don’t need to visit the DMV for their permit or license, as testing is done by certified driving instructors on-site.
