Teen Driver Training

Training Teens to Be Safe and Smart on the Road.

Did your teen just turn 15 ½ and now eager to learn to drive? 

Before you hand over the car keys, it’s critical to enroll your child in a high-quality driver training program. Why?

Young drivers simply don’t have the experience behind the wheel to know how to handle different driving scenarios. Many also lack proper training or are getting the bare minimum of behind-the-wheel practice needed to pass the DMV test. 

Our program can train your teen in many common scenarios:

  1. In the rain
  2. On a packed highway during rush hour
  3. On a one-way street
  4. And more!

And teach them critical driving skills such as:

  1. Switching lanes
  2. Merging onto a highway
  3. Approach an intersection with a flashing red light
  4. And more!

Learn About the DMV Requirements

Do you know what your teen must do to obtain a driver’s permit or license? Find out below!

Permit (Under 18 years of age)

  1. Be at least 15 ½, but under 18 years of age
  2. Fill out the DMV application form (DL-44) online
  3. Obtain parent or guardian signatures on the application form (DL-44)
  4. Provide his or her driver’s education certificate of completion (at least 30 hours of classroom instruction)
  5. Present acceptable identity and legal residence documents
  6. Provide his or her social security number
  7. Pay the required application fee
  8. Pass an eye exam
  9. Have his or her picture taken
  10. Provide a thumbprint
  11. Pass a knowledge test (If your child misses 9 or more of the 46 total questions, he or she must wait one week before retaking the test.)

License (Under 18 years of age)

  1. Be 16 years old
  2. Have held a provisional instruction permit for a minimum of six months
  3. Have completed a driver education course (at least 30 hours of classroom instruction)
  4. Have completed a minimum of six hours of professional driver training 
  5. Have completed 50 hours of driving practice with an adult 25 years or older. The adult must have a valid California driver’s license and certify to the 50 hours of practice. At least 10 of the 50 hours must have been done at night.

To take the driving test, your teen 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, your child will be issued an interim driver’s license valid for 90 days until his or her new photo driver’s license arrives in the mail. 

If your teen fails the driving test, he or she must wait 14 days before retaking it. Your teen has three chances to pass, and each additional driving test requires a $7 fee.

All Driving Schools are not created equal…

Our driver training vehicles are equipped with both a gas and brake pedal on the passenger side. Having the training car equipped only with a brake pedal makes you only half as safe. We want our students to be completely safe in the car if something unusual should happen. Don't be fooled if other driving schools tell you otherwise. Common sense tells us it is indeed safer to have both a gas and a brake pedal installed on the passenger side of the car for complete control of the vehicle during driving lessons. Second, our driver training vehicles are equipped with four training mirrors, and three student mirrors for complete circular vision. To be completely safe, the instructor must be able to watch not only the road, but the student's movements as well.
