Driving Lessons in Avon CT

When you take your driving lessons at our Avon Driving School Location, at the corner of West Avon Rd and Country Club Rd, you will reap the benefits of some of the finest instructional staff in the state of Connecticut. Mr. Aldo Scordino and Mr. Henry Binghi Jr., each a Licensed Master Instructor with over 70 years of driving experience and over 30 years as educators combined, are there to proudly serve the greater Hartford area.

Lessons 1 & 2

During lessons 1 and 2, we teach our students the basics of turning maneuvers and lane tracking followed by safe and efficient left and right turns. From there, you will learn the K-turn/3-point turn, and then on to the often misunderstood world of “parking”. You will learn how to pull-in to a space on the left and right, back in to one the left and right, and how to parallel park. Our educators are trained to teach highly effective methods for each so that the student can quickly advance to learn blind spot checks and then move on to lane changes on Route 44, in preparation for a wonderful highway learning experience on Route 8. Beginning from Hopmeadow Street and Route 44, students will drive on Route 44 towards Canton and in the process, they will have had a chance to complete a minimum of 5 lane changes, or more if traffic conditions allow.

Lesson 3

If the student is proficient in the basics, for their third lesson they will head up to Winsted where they will begin their highway lesson on Route 8.The drive south will usually take them to Harwinton, which will allow for a minimum of 3 highway merges before turning around and heading back north to Winsted. Here we will continue to work on lane changes, but this time the speeds on the highway will range from 55-60 mph. Although the speed limit is 65, we believe it is best to introduce these skills gradually and at speeds more conducive to the student’s comfort level. This allows for a greater opportunity to build on their confidence level. When we ask the student to complete a lane change on the highway, they will do so from the right lane which will turn into “the middle lane”, once the right slow lane opens up. Lane changing from the middle lane and into the right, and visa versa, will keep the student out of the left lane, or the passing lane, and focused on tracking. The highway lesson should take 90 minutes of the total 120 minutes of their lesson. By the time the fourth lesson takes place, the student will have acquired the skills to carry over to practice sessions with their instruction at home, prior to their final lesson with The Next Street. Keep in mind that the State of Connecticut requires a minimum of 40 hours of driving practice in total before the road test takes place.

Lesson 4

The fourth lesson will be a review of everything prior but given the limited time, we generally do not go back on the highway unless it is requested. Additional lessons are often requested to concentrate on areas of weakness for the student. Students who will be taking their road test in Avon can expect the test to take about 15-20 minutes. The route will take the form of a drive in any direction for about 8-10 minutes and then back to The Next Street. The agent from the DMV may ask the student to perform any one of the back-in parking maneuvers or to perform a parallel park, perhaps a k-turn, and then back to The Next Street for a pull-in park. There are many ideal, local spots which can be used to practice back-in parking maneuvers, including St. Ann Church, the Avon Public Library, Pinegrove Elementary School, the town pool on Sycamore Road, or at the back of our parking lot adjacent to Luke’s Doughnuts.

Throughout your experience with us at The Next Street, we encourage open communication to monitor the progress and strategies for passing the road test and a safe driving experience for a lifetime.
