DOLLAR DRIVING SCHOOL RECOMMENDS…
Start your Driver Education in classroom or On-Line with us when you turn 15 or within a month.
Your child will be able to drive with their instructor with a DMV Student License which we provide.
In this manner they will have at least 6-12 hours of in car before they turn 15 ½ and get their permit, then they can start driving with you. We also recommend that through the process between 15 ½ and 16 that they get in at least another 6 hours between practice with you. This will help them improve a great deal and not pick up any bad habits.
