The next step is to get your behind the wheel drivers training. 


We offer drivers training in a variety of locations around California. At the completion of drivers training you are ready to take the DMV road test. 

TEEN DRIVERS TRAINING (BEHIND THE WHEEL TRAINING)


Drivers Training is a mandatory requirment for teens looking to earn their driver license before the age of 18. It is a way to learn the rules and regulations of our streets and highways so that they too can easily obtain a license to drive in California. Drivers training is many times refered to as "behind the wheel" training because once you have studied and pass the rules of the road examination on paper (Drivers Ed and Permit test) your next step is to put your knowlege into practice. 


Drivers training helps you do just that. YOU get behind the wheel. It consist of 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training. The student completes this course in 3 sessions of 2 hours. Our patient, understanding and experienced instructors will be right next to you to help you gain the confidence and knowledge you need to pass the California drivers test, and more importantly help you learn the skills to be a safe driver. At the end or your drivers training program you will feel confident, secure, and safe behind the wheel of a car.


Free home, school or work pick-up and drop-off service is included, which offers an extra convenience for parents who find it difficult to take students to their driving lessons. The student is taught safety and defensive driving techniques.


All our instructors are licensed by the DMV. We have met all of the requirements for licensing by State of California including inspections of the vehicles, bonding and insurance.

THE ROAD TEST


Once you have completed drivers education course, obtained your learners permit and have taken 6 hours of behind the wheel training you will be well prepared to pass your California drivers road test.


Many students fear the actual road test. With all the excitement of possibly getting your license also comes the possibility of failing and having to tell your friends and family you flunked. 


Take the drivers road test with us and we'll make this last part of your drivers learning experience a positive one. We will pick you up, drive you to your appointment and you will take the test with us.
