Overview of the Scheduling Process... 

1.  Look at our available driving days, times, and locations (listed below).    Write down the 7 drives you want.  Try to remember any special event that could come into conflict with your drives (birthdays, etc.)  Drive 7, the last drive, includes a parent drive described below.

2.  Schedule by texting us.  See "How to Schedule" below.

3.  We will send a PayPay Invoice.  Please pay as soon as possible.  We will award the drives to whomever contacts and pays us first (first-come-first-served).  You do not need a PayPal account to pay.

4.  Go to the DMV as soon as possible.  If you are fairly certain you will sign up with Ultra Safe you can go there before actually signing up.  Students cannot begin training or start the online unless they go to the DMV.   DMV Page

**Important:  Students cannot drive in your vehicle until they have completed the driving & online portion and have received the actual plastic permit.  Doing so is illegal.  We will send you "Pre-Drive At Home Training" information that does not include actual driving but will greatly help your student (and is legal).  It is not necessary, and illegal, to practice driving before the driving portion.** 

5.  Your student can now start the IODE online course.  We will complete your scheduled drives regardless of your online progress.

   That's it - we will complete the drives. 

Students earn their permit when both the online and driving portions are passed & completed.

 

 

How to Schedule

​​1.  Please look at the drives listed below.  Look carefully at "Important Driving Information".  Note the list is not updated regularly.  Refresh the page frequently.

   Tip:  Drive #6 is usually the freeway drive.  It is wise to schedule this drive after 5p for less freeway traffic.

 

2.  Schedule using text messaging.  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 (texting preferred)

Drive Lengths and Locations 

​​Drive Lengths

Drives are 2 - 2 hours/15 minutes.  If 2 friends or siblings sign up to drive together then the drives will be

3 to 3.5 hours each.  The last drive, Drive 7, includes a parent observation portion.  For solo students the last drive is 3 hrs.  For paired 

students the last drive is 5 hrs.  Paired students can do the last drive on separate days.      

 

Drive Locations

The drive locations could change based on the pairing-up of students.  If 2 students are starting at 3:30 but are on different drives the drive location might change.  For example, if your student is doing drive #4 it might start at a different location rather than Summit Dental Group because their partner is starting at a different location.

Home or School Pick-up Option...We can pick up your student at home or school for an additional fee depending on the schools location.  Please note your student will still drive at the locations and for the times listed above.  We will drive your student to the locations.  Pick-up and drop-off times might vary 10-20 minutes because of extra time needed for commuting.
