how many Days will this take?
The State law requires 36 hours of classroom training and 7 days of behind the wheel. (I know some other schools require less time but what they are doing is illegal. Safety for each new driver and others that will be on the road with them should be considered on choosing which school to attend).
Can I Double up days on Driving?
Due to state law each student is only allowed one session of behind the wheel a day.
What Does a Driving Session Consist of?
There are seven driving sessions in Behind the Wheel. Each one will require the student to drive for 50 minutes and observe another student drive for 50 minutes.
Why do I have to do this?
The State of Virginia mandates that all new drivers under 18 must take Driver's education before obtaining a license.
Why Should I choose a commercial school instead of the one offered at the Public School?
We are able to work around and accommodate each students busy schedule. Also not taking it at school will allow the student to take a different course that might not have been possible before. All of our classes are 9 days instead of semester long. For the driving part we work around school and extra curricular activities. We can pick up after school and we do weekend sessions too!
Do the days for behind the wheel have to be consectutuive?
No we know students are super busy and have a lot going on. We will do everything we can to accommodate you as best we can.
