These lessons are primarily for those with some driving experience who want to get better and/or learn what is expected on the road test. We will always start by checking your ability to control the vehicle. After checking your control of the vehicle, we will proceed to traffic situations as the road test is given on actual roads, not a closed course. The next thing would be to teach you what is expected on the road test and how to perform all of the maneuvers correctly.
The self-paced nature of these lessons require communication between the student and instructor so the instructor can give an accurate assessment of your skills and better predict how many more lessons will be sufficient for you to achieve your goal of getting a driver's license.
Students under age 17, must have completed a course (8 hour classroom / 6 hours in-car) to be eligible for these lessons. South Carolina law requires 15 & 16 year old to have completed a course (8/6) in order to test for a license. We have had students from other schools who felt they were not ready for the road test take these courses. In such cases we would like to see the PDLA form from the other school to verify you are eligible.
After instructor approval, first-time license applicants who hold a South Carolina Learner's Permit may take the road test for an additional fee.
