Supply Update: We have select lesson slots available as early as this week. Peak time lessons are still booking out 6-8 weeks in select locations. We are continuing to add staff that meet and exceed our high standards of service and education and hope to be fully staffed by year end. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Here’s the thing: Driving is a learned skill. Meaning, no one just knows how to drive
naturally (despite what the older jokesters in your family tell you!). So it
takes practice and, oftentimes, behind the wheel training with professional
instructors. We offer driving lessons from over 80 locations around the State of CT. Though the State of Connecticut doesn’t require a new driver to
take any professional behind the wheel training, The Next Street team strongly
recommends that every new driver take some private driving lessons to be fully prepared for a lifetime of safe driving.
Before scheduling behind the wheel training with The Next Street, you may want some intel on the basics. Here’s everything you'll need to know about lessons with a professional instructor.
The short answer is: it depends. If you have experience driving and have family members that are willing and able to practice with you, we recommend at least 8 hours of driving lessons with a professional driving instructor. If you don't have people that can practice with you, we recommend a larger package - remember you need at least 40 hours of behind the wheel training before you test.
We also understand that price plays a major factor in this decision. Because lessons are one on one with a professional, they can get very expensive. Even if you can only afford 2-hours of time, do it. Any time spent with our professional staff will make you more prepared for a safe life on the road, and more likely to pass your driving test on the first try.
We sell our lessons in 2-hour blocks. Lessons can be added at time of enrollment into a classroom product, after enrollment through our student portal, or you can purchase only driving lessons without a classroom product by calling (860) 631-4292.
Our Mock Road Test and Test Prep Lesson is a 2 hour private driving lesson specifically created to prepare you for road test day. You'll perform mock versions of the actual road test, with expert commentary and feedback, so you'll know exactly how you're doing. After the mock test, we will spend the remaining time working on the places you struggled most to make sure you are as confident as possible on test day.
Our Mock Test Promise: If you have completed one of our Full Driver Education Programs and fail your road test after taking this lesson, you will be able to take your test with The Next Street again until you pass for no charge (DMV fees not included).
You can enroll in only Private Driving Lessons by calling (860) 631-4292 or you can add them to any Driving Course at the time you enroll online or over the phone.
