Teaching Adults to Drive With Confidence

Alliance Defensive Driving School Has Been Successfully Training Adult Drivers for Over a Decade

Whatever your situation, our experienced, patient driving instructors can help you develop a solid understanding of California laws and instill good driving habits.

Using proven defensive driving methods, we teach you how to handle real-life driving situations with confidence. Plus, each of our driving instructors is personally trained by a 14-year police force veteran, and our driver training vehicles have extra safety features built-in. That means you can rest assured you’ll be safe while getting the highest quality driver education possible.

How to Obtain a Driver’s License: Step-by-step

Do you know how to obtain your driver’s permit and license? Find out below!

  1. Be over 18 years of age
  2. Fill out the DMV application form (DL-44) online
  3. Present acceptable identity and legal residence documents
  4. Provide your social security number
  5. Pay the required application fee
  6. Pass an eye exam
  7. Have your picture taken
  8. Provide a thumbprint
  9. Pass a knowledge test (If you miss 9 or more of the 46 total questions, you must wait one week before retaking the test.)
If you are a new adult driver or a current driver from another country, the DMV requires that you take a behind-the-wheel driving test. To do this, you will need to:
  • Make a driving test appointment through the DMV Appointment System or call 1-800-777-0133 during the regular business hours. Driving tests are not given without an appointment.
  • Provide proof of financial responsibility that meets or exceeds California Insurance Requirements.
After passing the driving test, you will be issued an interim driver’s license valid for 90 days until your new photo driver’s license arrives in the mail.  If you fail the test, you must pay a retest fee for a second or subsequent test and schedule a behind-the-wheel driving test for another day. 

Why Alliance?

We are the only driver training service in San Diego that outfits our driver training vehicles with both gas and brake pedals on the passenger side to ensure complete control of the car should something unexpected occur.
Our cars are equipped with seven mirrors, rather than the standard three. This allows our instructors to watch student movements without taking their eyes off the road, so they can anticipate problems before they happen.
Each of our hand-selected driving instructors is rigorously trained by a 14-year San Diego police force veteran. They know the rules of the road better than anyone and understand how to keep our students safe.
Each student learns at a different pace. Our customized lessons focus on the concepts the student needs the most help in, building confidence as they go.
Scheduling a driving lesson is quick and easy. Just go to our online scheduling app, then choose the best day and time for your schedule. It just takes a few clicks!
No need to build in travel time for your driving lesson. Pick up and drop off at home, work, or school
Our driving instructors boast a combined 75+ years of defensive driving experience to help prepare you for any driving scenario.
