  • What we encourage from Parents or Guardians:

  • We encourage you to drive with the student. Even 5 to 10 minutes daily will assist in developing skills. Driving with an experienced driver will improve skills and produce a safer driver on the road.

  • We suggest you enroll your student at 15. The new state law requires those under 18 years of age to have their permit for at least 6 months prior to applying for their license.

  • We can provide the classroom and vehicle instruction, but the most important element is judgment, which parents or guardians must evaluate.
  • Attendance Policies:

  • Students must attend 30 hours of classroom instruction and have 6 hours of one on one, behind the wheel training.

  • Usually we can schedule 1 to 6 hours of observation time in the vehicle, as well.

  • The course is 30 classroom hours. Student may take longer if needed but can not finish early according to Washington State regulations.
