Frequently Asked Questions

How do I change my lesson?

You can either call, text, or email to notify us of a lesson cancellation. Please keep in mind there is a $20 fee for cancellations with less than 24 hours notice, and $30 for cancellations less than an hour before the scheduled start time, so make sure to cancel early!

What do I do if I lost my learner's permit/my temps expired?

How long do I have to complete my Behind the Wheel lessons?

As long as you need! Most people try and finish them quickly because you have to renew your permit after one year. You have to have your first lesson within 60 days of us signing your MV3001 form.

What do you do when there is adverse weather?

Although our goal is to never cancel lessons for any reason, we will never risk the safety of our staff, equipment, and most importantly, our students. Lessons will be cancelled if there is an impending winter storm warning, icy conditions, unplowed roads, downpours, or tornado warnings. We will always send you both an email and text regarding weather cancellations.

How do I schedule an observation hour?

Look at the schedule and pick a time that is already booked for your pickup location. We can not accommodate multiple pickup locations for observation hours, but you are more than welcome to schedule at a different school if you can get dropped off there. Send us an email with the time and date that you'd like to observe on.

How long does my student need to have their learner's permit?

Students under 18, but at least 15 and a half, must hold their learner's permit for a minimum of six months before getting their license. Although students can get their learner's permit at 15, they can not actually get their license until they are 16. Parents, keep in mind that students are required to get 50 hours of driving time with you, and 10 of those hours need to be in the dark!
