Frequently Asked Questions


How old do I need to be to begin classes?
You can get your permit and begin classes at 15 and 6 months. You do not need your permit to begin the classroom portion but we recommend doing so. Keep in mind that you need to hold your permit for six months prior to getting your license.
Do you offer a payment plan?

We only require a $100.00 deposit (cash, check or credit/debit card) to begin the classes. You may take as long as you need to pay the balance however we cannot schedule the driving lessons until the balance is paid in full.

How long do the classes take?

Our classes are Monday-Thursday 5:20-8:30pm. They consist of 8 different units that are independent of each other. If you are a busy teen you can skip around and make up the classes you miss. You have six months to complete all the lessons. Lesson 8 must be done last because it is the final exam. If you are extremely busy our online classes are an option for you.

Do you pick me up at home?

For the classroom lessons you would need to find a ride to our school. However for the driving portion we will pick you up as long as you live in Trumbull County. If you live outside Trumbull County we will make arrangements to pick you up at an alternate location.

I lost my certificate. Can I get a new one?

We can issue a replacement certificate. You will need to come into our office (Mon-Thurs 5-8:30pm) to fill out a Request for Certificate form. The cost is $10.00.

How do I get started?

You can save a seat in our classroom by clicking on "Enroll". Follow the prompts and fill in the information accurately as it is on your driving permit. At the end of the registration you can choose "pay now" or "pay later". If you choose "pay now" you will be prompted to enter your credit card information on our secure site. Or choose "pay later" and just bring at least $100.00 deposit on the first night of class.

I'd have a difficult time making it to the classes. Do you offer another option?

Yes we offer online classes that you can access 24 hours a day instead of coming to the classes. Check out our packages and sign up for the online bundle including the 8 hours of driving.
