Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much is the Student Driver Course?
    The complete Program Package is $325.00. For an additional $50.00, the student will have use of the Driving School vehicle for the road test.

  • Will I be driving with any other students in the car?
    Never, we provide only "one on one" behind the wheel instruction with a certified instructor.

  • How soon will I get my license?
    If you are eligible (having held your permit for 181 days or longer) we will complete your training within a week to 10 days depending on your schedule. We have two student driver vehicles and two instructors available at all times.

  • Will my parent need to come to the DMV on the day of the test?
    Of course they are welcome, but we will have completed all the paperwork with them prior to the test date so they will not have to be there. Our instructor will assist you through the process and will return you to school or home.

  • What kind of paperwork do I need to get my License?
    We will coordinate the paper work and make sure that you have everything you need. You will need your PERMIT and if under 17, $12.50 for the License Fee. We will fill out the DMV application in advance for your parent’s signature and we will provide the PDLA form you will need to have signed by your school and parents.

  • Will I have to take a written test to get my license?
    No. You have already completed the written portion of the driving exam and will not have to retest if your permit is current or expired less than 9 months.

  • What kind of cars do you have?
    We have a 2016 KIA Sorrento SUV. It is outfitted with dual brakes and mirrors for your safety and comfort.

  • Will I have to provide insurance to drive your car?
    No, we have a Commercial Driving School policy that covers you both in the car (even while on the driving test) and when you are at your classroom session. We are protected for 1,000,000 Liability, 500,000 uninsured motorists 300,000 underinsured motorists.

  • Is there an advantage of taking the full course rather than the hourly instruction?
    Yes, of course. You get the benefit of 8 hours of interactive classroom with a certified instructor as well as a defensive driving certificate at the satisfactory completion of the course. Many insurance companies offer a discount upon receipt of said certificate. Discounts vary with each insurance company.

  • Where do we meet for the Driving Instruction?
    We provide pick up and return from school, home, work or specific activity in the greater Hilton Head / Bluffton area.

  • When are classes held?
    Two Saturday’s a month. See Home Page for current dates...

  • Do I need to register for a class or can I just show up?
    We request that you call and make a reservation as we have limited seating in each Saturday class.

  • What if I need to cancel my class date?
    We have no fees for class cancellation or a change to a different class date. We do request common courtesy of a phone call as soon you may know a change is required as we may be able to fill the seat with another student. We realize teen schedules can often be complicated.

  • Do I need to bring anything to class?
    Please being your Permit or License, Social Security number and the appropriate fee.

  • What vehicle will I use to take the road test?
    Our $375.00 Program is structured for you to take the ROAD TEST in our vehicle, the same vehicle you trained in. Experience has shown us that using the same vehicle creates a higher rate of road test success. Although we are not with you on the road test, you are still fully insured by our commercial policy. Our $325.00 Program is structured for you to take the ROAD TEST in your own vehicle.
