Behind the Wheel Driving Lessons:


We are offering behind-the-wheel driving lessons. There are several restrictions in place, including the following:

  • Masks are recommended but not required for people who are fully vaccinated.
  • Masks are required for anyone who is not fully vaccinated.  
  • To keep everyone safe behind the wheel, lessons will start and finish at the driving school when possible. 
  • Our 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. hours are the most popular and may be scheduled out a month ahead of time. 
  • Please only schedule lessons you know you are available to do.  We have to pay the instructors if you cancel within 24 hours. The fee for canceling lessons within 24 hours is $25 per hour. This fee is used to pay the instructor for their scheduled time.
