Find yourself on the easiest road to your license. The life of a boarding school student is challenging. At The Next Street, we understand these challenges so we created a Driver's Ed program that caters to your specific needs. Our driving lessons at Ethel Walker meet on Sundays so as to not interfere with your normal academic and extracurricular commitments.

If you are an International or Out of State Student, you are eligible to obtain a Connecticut Driver's License using your address at Ethel Walker. We have a Boarding School specialist on staff that will work with you to assure you have all of the needed paperwork and requirements to get your license. This is available at no extra charge when you enroll in our program at Ethel Walker.

Due to the small population, we are not able to hold the classroom hours at Ethel Walker. Students are permitted to attend the classes at Avon Old Farms (just down the road). You are responsible for your own transportation to and from Avon. Driving lessons will all pick up and drop off at Ethel Walker. For class schedules, or to enroll, visit the Avon Old Farms page.
