Private Driving Lessons
Whose car do you use?
How many hours is each driving lesson?
Generally, lessons are one and one half hours long.
How can I schedule an "in-car driving lesson"?
Upon registration, we will ask questions about your schedule and make every attempt to match a teach with you.
Do I have to obtain a permit to have driving lessons?
Yes. Georiga law requires all drivers to have a Class CP Licence (Learner's License) in order to operate a motor vehicle.
How long is the wait for driving lessons?
Every effort is made to schedule lessons within one week of registration.
What do I need to bring for my first drive?
Bring your driving permit. Make sure that you wear comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes. We ask that drivers do NOT wear sandals or flip-flops.
What is included in the driving lessons?
The driving part of the course is scheduled by appointment and is done in our dual controlled car. This is an individual one on one instruction. We teach parallel parking, three point turn around, lane control, speed control and extensive highway instruction.
Do I get a certificate?
All teen drivers who completed the course are given a certificate. These are required to obtain your Class D License. Adults completing the course are given certificates by request only.
Can I take the Driver’s Ed class and driving lessons at the same time?
Yes, but we prefer to wait until after the classroom lessons are complete so you will have a good knowledge of driving techniques
Do I need Behind the Wheel instruction from a professional to get my license?
No. Many students and parents prefer to take lessons from a professional driving instructor to be sure safe driving habits start from the very beginning. Since our training car has safety controls on the passenger side, our instructor can avoid most accidents that may occur with new drivers. Without these safety controls, many parents find teaching a teen to drive to be a very stressful experience. Starting off with a professional is safer, and much less stressful for both parent and student.
Are there any financial benefits for taking the “30 and 6” driving course?
Yes. Most insurance companies offer substantial discounts to teens and young adults who successfully complete the “30 and 6” driving course. Additionally, parents or guardians are eligible for a $150 tax credit when a dependent minor completes the “30 and 6” course through a private driver training school, such as DOCO Driving School. This discount is not available to students who take driving lessons in public schools. Contact your insurance company for details.
