Evaluation Session

This session is for Students with zero to minimal driving experience. We will start you in a parking lot and work your way up from there. Depending on each Student's learning style and experience level, they may not come out of a parking lot on the evaluation session. You will most likely need an extra one of these sessions and/or extra basic driving sessions. You wil need to get help outside of our program along the way to build your behind the wheel experience. Failure to do so, will mean more sessions with us at a continued additional cost. (2hrs)

We provide Students tips what the examiners will look for and mark off on the actual road test. (2hrs)

How Our 6-Hour Certified Driving School Program Works!


1st session covers Basic Driving (2 Hours):

  • Building confidence behind the wheel.
  • City, Country, and Expressway driving.
  • Work on their weaknesses along the way.

2nd session covers Test Preparation (2 Hours):

  • We take you to the actual testing site (depending on which county the permit was from).
  • Teach you all the maneuvers that are covered on the driving test: Parallel Parking, 3-Pt. Turn/Turn About, Over-Night Park, Smooth Stop and Reverse.
  • Give tips of what the Examiner will look for and take off on the day of your Test.

3rd session is the Actual Testing Day (2 Hours):

  • We schedule the test for you with the DMV Office. *Please check your eligibility date clicking here:
  • You will use our vehicle for the Actual Road Test.
  • We will take you out for 1 hour before the test time to refresh all
  • Testing Maneuvers and then bring you to the testing starting site.
  • If you end up failing the Road Test within our 6hr Program, we OFFER a Retake Road Test if we are able to get you scheduled within a timely manner. Since we as well as the DMVs are always booking out, we cannot guarantee going with us for your Retake. You will ultimately have quicker luck getting in before we can get you back in.
  • Parents are NOT required to be present on testing day or at the course.
  • *You will receive a Certificate at the end of the 3rd/Final session, showing you’ve completed our driving training (6 hours) with our Certified Driving School Program. Which you can then take to you car insurance company to receive a discount. *Please call your car insurance company just to be sure that accept it, just to be safe.
