On the first day of class, you and your parent must come to the school to sign the contract.
Question: Can I come to the school on the same that drivers ed start?
Answer: Yes. But we can't guarantee that you will have a seat so we encourge all students to sign up online for drivers ed for the dates and space available.
Question: Do students get tired or bored after being in the vehicle for 2 hours?
Answer: No! Our students enjoy being in the vehicle for 2 hours, they don't get tired or bored because they're not in the same area doing the same thing each lesson...our students go everywhere and drive in different communities.
Question: How long does it take a student to complete all the classroom time, driving lessons and observations?
Answer: It depends on the student, if a student miss days for class or take a long time to book their driving lessons and observations, it's no telling how long. But...the Accelerated Class is 5 days, the 2 hours driving lessons is 6 days and 2 hours observation is 3 days. So 14 days a student can finish all their requirements set by the RMV. But students on average can complete everything within 30 to 60 days give or take.
Question: Can I do my Driving Lessons and Observations on the same day?
Answer: No! All Students can only be in the vehicle for 2 hours per day, since all our students drive 2 hours per day, you can do one or the other...but NOT both.
Question: If I feel that I'm ready for my Road Test after taking one of your Driving Packages, would you schedule my road test?
Answer: Yes! We work for you, we can't force you to take more lessons if you don't want, we can only stand 100% behind our training for students that listens.
Question: I have a road test booked, can Auto Schools Inc. be my sponsor or do I have to sign up for lessons first?
Answer: You don't need to sign up for lessons if you want us to sponsor you, the only thing we ask...is that you pay our sponsor fee in cash before your road test date.
Question: I'm a Drivers Ed student at another Driving School, I've completed my 30 hours of classroom time and started on my driving and observations...but the driving school is taking way too long for me to complete my driving and observations, can I transfer to Auto Schools Inc.?
Answer: Yes! All you need from your current driving school is the form stamped and signed with all the hours you completed. You have the right to transfer to another driving school if your needs aren't being met in a timely manner. We'll charge you $35 for each hour you need to complete your Drivers Ed Course, hopefully your current driving school will refund you our fee so that you don't have to pay twice.
