How To Choose The Best Driving School

Choosing the best driving school isn’t very difficult, but it does a little bit of investigation. Unfortunately, there are quite a few poor quality driving schools out there, so don’t simply choose from the phone book. Here are some steps you can take to make sure they are a top quality course.

Check Their Reputation

If you are signing up for an online driving school to complete your classroom portion of driver's ed, make sure you check online reviews as well as the Better Business Bureau website. You can get a pretty good feel for which courses are good or not simply by searching the company you plan to sign up with.

For offline classroom courses, nothing beats physically going to the school and speaking with the staff directly. How long have they been around? What is the condition of the facilities? Better yet, find a current student of the school and ask for their opinion. If the school has a problem with you speaking to their students, there might be info they don’t want you to know.

Check For State Certification

Driving schools must be certified by each individual state they operate in. Make sure you get a copy of their certification so you know they are legitimate. Most online driving schools will have a page showing their certificates. If not, contact their customer service department and request a copy. Most offline based driving schools display their certifications and must have a copy to show you.

Completing Behind The Wheel Training

Behind the wheel training has different standards in each state. Most states require driving time with a licensed driving instructor, followed by additional driving time under the supervision of a licensed adult. All of this drive time must be logged. Take a look at the cars the driving school has. Are they old? Do they run well? Are they safe? Does the instructor have any control over the vehicle? Do they offer both automatic and manual transmission vehicles? And don’t forget about the driving instructors. How long have they been instructing?

Take Them For A Test Drive

Some people like to pay for a single lesson, just to see how things go. If things go well, they can proceed from there and enroll into a full course. Most driving schools offer single lesson courses and some may even do an introductory drive for free.

Most online driving schools also have free sign-up options or money back guarantees. This enables you to try out the actual course risk free. Trying a driving school out is the best way to know if it is the place for you. It may not be an ideal way to spend money, especially if the school ends up being a poor experience, but learning to drive is something you want to do right.

Final ThoughtsFinal Thoughts

This should help you get started to finding a great school. Make sure you check out several schools and don’t sign up on your first visit. Not only is this good practice so you can give all driving schools a fair chance, but a school might try to entice you to come back with discounts or other perks.

Remember, drive safe and good luck!
