As the positivity rate in Connecticut rises again, the health and safety of our customers and employees remains our top priority. Our team has been focused on planning for any potential disruption to our service should COVID continue to spike. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.

All classes are currently being held on Zoom. We have the most course offerings with the most schedule flexibility in CT. Click Here to see the full list of upcoming driver's ed classes. The Next Street knows how important a driver’s license is, especially during the current state of the world. We are excited to continue to offer services, but will never put our staff or our customer in harm’s way. We have created strict health and cleanliness protocols in order for us to continue to offer our outstanding driver’s education programs while keeping everyone healthy and safe.

In order for our precautions to be effective, we need total compliance from both our employees and students. Please take a moment to look over our requirements for BTW Lessons and License Tests prior to your next appointment. Please wear a mask. Please don't attend a lesson or test if you feel sick. We will do everything we can to make sure you are given priority rescheduling once you are well again.
