Note: Students will be asked about their driving times with parents or adult. Iowa requires all drivers with a permit have a minimum of 10 hours of adult instruction prior to taking class. It is hard to pass the Drivers Ed class in-car portion with limited hours of practice behind-the-wheel.

Teen Driving Lessons for One  $400

Individual Teen Driving Lessons are scheduled afternoons & evenings Monday through Friday 4pm - 9pm and weekends 8am - 6pm, when Drivers Ed classes are not in-session.

This class teaches new drivers the fundamentals of driving a motor vehicle. The class will introduce the student to the basic operations of the motor vehicle and how we operate the vehicle in several traffic environments. 

We will provide training in the following sections. We instruct on intersections, right and left turns, right turn on red, left turns, how to angle, perpendicular and parallel park, learning the speed limits on the city and residential streets and negotiating proper entrances and exits on 2 and 4 lane highways. We will introduce them to travel on the interstate where available and driving in larger metro locations.

The goal is to give each student the tools and experiences to be able to move into a certified Drivers Education class offered by us or another school. For adult learners, the ability to be prepared for the DOT testing and drive test. Our instruction will give young drivers extra preparation that will help them as they enter the Drivers education class and be able to learn from the classroom topics and the behind-the-wheel instructors.  We want all our students to feel comfortable when driving in their communities and continuing to grow and improve as a safe and responsible driver.

All our vehicles are lettered and visibly identified as a STUDENT DRIVER vehicle and all of our vehicles have a brake and gas pedal on the instructor's side (passenger) to assist in the modeling and training of the student.

We have locations to practice all the skills the student will need to be a driver in Iowa and across the US.

Student will receive 10 hours of driving instruction.

Times are scheduled in 1-2 hour blocks per week based on student and instructor availability.
