We appreciate your patience as we work through reopening challenges. We are prioritizing existing students for lessons and tests. Currently, there is a 3-4 month wait for lessons and 5 month wait for driving tests for new enrollments. We plan on adding more schedule availability for lessons and tests each week. If you are not in need of immediate service, it would help us a ton if you wait to call into our call center until after July 15th. We promise we are getting to everyone, but it is taking us some time to catch up with a limited, remote staff. Click here for all information on Driver's Ed during Covid-19.

We Are Open During Covid-19, but Need Your Help to Keep Our Staff and Students Health & Safe.
