Driver Education Agreement

CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION: DMV requires students to attend the 8-hour Safe Driving Class or the 30-hour full teen program before qualifying for a road test. Students do not need to have a permit to sign up and attend the class, but must be at least 16 years old. Students cannot arrive late or leave early per DMV guidelines. After class/lesson, students must be picked-up on time since instructors may have another appointment afterwards. Students up to 17 years old must take a parent class; at least one parent/guardian must accompany the student. Classes are charged separately from driving lessons unless already included in the selected package.

           The cost of the  Safe Driving (8-hour class) is $125

                                       Full Teen (30-hour classes w/o driving lessons) is $350.00

 

DRIVING LESSONS: DURATION Driving lessons are 60-min long. Students may book two lessons (120-min) back-to-back when available. NO-SHOW FEE If the student cannot make it to a driving lesson (regardless of the reason), arrives 10+min late, does not have a valid permit/license, a no-show fee is accessed ($40/60-min lesson) to cover instructor’s time. FEE WAIVER The fee is waived if the cancellation is made 24hrs+ prior to the lesson. To cancel or reschedule a lesson, students must use the reschedule/cancel button on the confirmation email for the lesson or speak with someone in the office. A voice/text message or email does not constitute as notice of cancellation. STARTING THE LESSON If you have a driving hour and the office is closed, please wait with a parent for the instructor to return at your scheduled time. Instructors are booked on back-to-back basis and will return for your appointment. If you leave, you will be charged a no-show fee. Driving lessons start at our office unless otherwise agreed with the office in writing. INSTRUCTOR DELAYS Although we strive to be on-time for every appointment, unforeseeable circumstances may delay the start of a lesson (e.g. traffic). When an instructor is late, the time will be added to the end of the lesson or a future lesson. PICK-UP /DROP-OFF at different locations can be scheduled for double lessons when the schedule allows. Lessons may be shorter due to pick-up/drop-off distance and traffic conditions. For a 60min lesson, a separate pick-up/drop-off fee applies. OBSERVATION Another instructor, staff member or student may be in the car observing.

             The cost per 60-min lesson is $70.00

 

ROAD TEST AT THE DRIVING SCHOOL: DMV inspectors conduct the road tests and may make changes that are beyond the school's ability to control. DMV R229 form must be completed, signed and payment received in full to schedule the road test. We have limited number of spots available and cannot guarantee that you will be able to test without an appointment. Students are encouraged to arrive 30min early.
