Overview of the Entire Driver Training Process
1. Go to the DMV as soon as possible to get the permit. You must have a permit in order to drive. Go to the DMV Page for more information.
2. Follow the scheduling steps below. You can also use the Schedule Preference Form to let us know the times you can drive. More information below.
3. The next step is paying for the drives. We will email a Paypal invoice to be paid with credit, debit, or paypal account. You can also pay with Venmo.
How to Schedule
Step 1. Write down or note any important events for the next 3-4 weeks on your personal calendar.
Step 2. Please look at the drives listed below. Look carefully at "Important Driving Information". Note the list is not updated regularly. Refresh the page frequently.
Step 3. Schedule using text messaging or fill out the Driving Schedule Preference Form below. Texting is the best way because you are creating your own driving schedule. Using the Driving Schedule Preference Form is easy but takes longer to schedule because we will try to find a good driving schedule for you.
Here are some scheduling rules and suggestions...
-Drives start at the specific locations listed below. Please allocate extra time needed for transportation if you need to be picked up and dropped off at a specific location.
- Drive #6 is the freeway. It is wise to schedule this drive after 5pm.
Texting Tip: For texting simply text us the 7 days and times you want and we will see if they are available. If you can only find 6 drives - please text us the 6 drives and we will try to find an opening for the 7th drive. An example text might look like..."7 330, 11 630, 15 730, etc.". We will double-check to make sure they are available and let you know. After the drives are confirmed, please go back to step #5 above.208-880-3311
Drive Lengths and Locations
Drives are 2 hours. Sometimes they go longer. If you enjoy learning, I will gladly teach beyond 2 hours.
Listed below. Click here for more information...Practice Drive Locations.
Home Pick-up Option...
Please note you will still drive at the locations and for the times listed above. We will drive you to the locations. There is usually an extra pick-up fee - please give us your address so we can calculate it.
The pick-up fee is based on the extra driving time to pick you up, take you to the drive location, and take you home. Some drives might be able to start at your location and sometimes you might be able to drive yourself home. If you are driving from your residence or back to your residence the extra time will be added to your 2 hour practice time. For example...if we start driving from your residence and it takes 15 minutes to get to the drive location, and it takes 15 minutes for you to drive yourself home - you will get an extra 30 minutes of driving. This extra driving is calculated into the pick-up fee. So part of the pick-up fee is for extra practice time you will get.
