We are currently scheduling driving lesson appointments out 8-10 weeks in many locations. We apologize for the delay and are working hard to continue to onboard more outstanding staff members. We will continue to work to reduce this wait time as new staff members come on board. We appreciate 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. 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 with us.
Please Note: We are currently booking out 8-12 weeks for driving lessons. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. We are working quickly to resolve this issue.
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 Private Driving 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 8 hours of driving lessons. If you don't have people that can practice with you, we recommend a larger package.
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. Our instructor will take you on actual routes commonly used during license tests. 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.
