Our Stamford CT Driving School Curriculum

Welcome to your first driving lesson at 3000 Summer Street In Stamford! Your instructor will be waiting for you by the car in the back of the building. Remember to spread your lessons out and not schedule them all in one week. We would like you to take time and practice the skills you've learned between each lesson.

Ready for your first lesson? Great! Let's buckle up and discuss the proper way to set our seat and mirrors. We'll head out of the parking lot and take a right on to Hoover Ave. Let's drive to the end of the street and learn the proper procedure to execute a 3-point turn. You may have to do one on your test! We'll then head out to Cold Spring Road. Let's take a left and drive to Scalzi Park for some pull in parking practice. Then we'll drive through North Stamford and back down into town to get experience on different types of roads. Along the way we'll discuss scanning for hazards and using good judgement to be a safe, defensive driver.

Our second lesson will have us doing parallel parking on Hoover and Richards Ave. Don't worry! It's easier than you think! Then we'll take a ride up High Ridge Road to learn to use our mirrors and safely execute lane changes. Then let's stop into Westhill High School and learn how to back-in park.

Third lesson we take you on the highway! We'll show you the proper way to safely enter and exit a highway. Let's head up Long Ridge Road and get on the Merritt Parkway. We will drive north to Route 8, take the connector over to I-95, and south back to Stamford.

Save your fourth lesson for closer to your test date so we can review and perfect the skills you've learned. Let your instructor know where you are testing, she may have some helpful advice!

We've shown you how to be a confident, knowledgeable driver. Now go pass that license test!!!
