Driving Lessons are 1-hour in-car instruction periods for students to learn how to drive, work on specific skills or get their skills evaluated for safe driving. Skills are taught from the DMV CSMA 19 form, the same form that DMV uses to determine if an individual is prepared for a road test. The content of lessons is up to the student. Students can request to work on a specific skill (changing lanes) or multiple skills (U-turns, perpendicular parking, right of way).
As a driving school licensed by the Department of Motor Vehicles, we are barred from guaranteeing that a student will drive perfectly upon completion of lessons. However, we do our best to make sure students understand the rules of the road, laws of driving, safe driving skills, and defensive maneuvers. As a reminder, each individual learns how to drive or improves upon skills at different speeds so practicing as often as possible is recommended. If at the end of driving lessons the student needs to continue to practice, then the instructor will complete a student evaluation to inform the student of areas to work on.
Students must have a learner's permit or driver's license. Any other driving credential will need to be verified by the DMV. Students are not required to have driving experience.
We recommend the student or parent discuss any learning or physical disabilities with us before registering. We appreciate advance notice in these situations so that we may work together to determine if the student will be successful at our school. Our school does not have instructors qualified for individuals under medical review or who have significant learning/physical disabilities.
Any individual age 15 years and 6 months old or older with either a valid learner's permit or driver's license qualifies for lessons.
Adults will receive a signed CSMA 19 form or a student evaluation report depending on the proficiency of their driving skills.
The 45 driving lessons package is only available to individuals under age 18.
As part of Virginia’s graduated licensing programs, teen drivers must have 45 hours of on the road driving practice, 15 of which must be after sunset, before they can be issued their driver's license.
Teens will receive a driving log for the hours completed with us to go towards their 45-hour driving log. The instructor will also issue an evaluation report at the end of training.
We will require students to wear a face mask or cover in the vehicle. Gloves are recommended but not required. We do ask that students wash their hands before they enter the vehicle. We will continue to sanitize our vehicles between student appointments and provide students with hand sanitizer.
Residents of other cities must be within our service area; pick-up and drop-off is limited to specific areas (e.g. we do not travel more than 30 minutes for pick-up). Residents of other cities will have an additional $10 fee per lesson for pick-up and drop-off.
