30 Hours Classroom Instruction (Virtual) - $265

This package meets the mandatory 30 hour classroom requirement set forth by the Secretary of State for teenage drivers. This is classroom instruction only, which breaks down into, fifteen (15) 2 hour classes. 

Behind the Wheel UpdateWe are beginning the behind the wheel process. We are currently driving students that were on our drive schedule prior to the COVID outbreak. We are operating at 50% capacity due to the fact that some of our driving instructors have not returned due to COVID concerns. So please be patient as we hope to get back up to full speed soon.

Here are the drive package options*:

Basic Package - This package meets the mandatory minimum requirements set forth by the Secretary of State for teenage drivers. This package includes 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction and hours of mandatory in-car observation (Currently due to COVID, Secretary of State has temporarily waived the mandatory observation hours until we reach phase 5 - this is subject to change). (Cost $300)

All American Package - This package includes 8 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction but unlike the basic package, students choosing this option eliminate the need for observation (which SOS has temporarily waived) by completing additional drive hours (four (4) 1.5 hour sessions and two (2) 1 hour sessions). (Cost $375)

Best Defensive Package - This package includes 10 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction (six (6) 1.5 hour sessions and one (1) 1 hour session). Also no observation required (Cost $475)

*The drive portion is currently not available for enrollment through the website. It will be added to your classroom enrollment by our office once your teen is scheduled to drive. Thank you for your patience.
