Selecting the driving school where you’ll do behind-the-wheel instruction is a huge decision, and it’s important that you do your research beforehand. We suggest doing a quick Google search, such as “driving school + your zip code or city“. Some things you should keep in mind are: Cost – 14 hours of instruction at a state-approved driving school could cost anywhere from $200 to upwards of $400. Location – How far is the driving school from where you live and go to school? How convenient is it for you to get to and from the driving school? How will you get there? Schedule – Available instruction hours at driving schools vary and certain seasons are busier than others (such as summer). Does the class schedule work for you and your parents? Reviews and ratings – What have other people said about the driving school you’re looking at? If the school has consistently received positive reviews and high ratings, maybe it’s a good idea to consider taking lessons there. Bad reviews from previous students and parents may mean you should continue your search.
