We ARE In-Person for classes and we have resumed Observation Hours with our program. Please plan to attend all classes in-person, as zooming in to a live class will not be allowed at this time.
Age Requirements: The student MUST be at least 15 years and 9 months by the first day of the class they are registered in. We do NOT currently offer this course for students older than 21.
Attendance Requirements: Students are required to attend all classes per NH state regulations. They may be allowed to miss two classes (or up to four hours total) but this is reserved for emergencies and must be approved by the instructor (and an absence note must be provided). Sports are NOT valid absences. The first class is MANDATORY and may not be used as an absence (see FAQ's for additional info). Please plan accordingly.
Tuition: Classes will be $950. A non-refundable registration deposit of $150 is due at the time of registration (must be paid within 15 days) to secure a spot in the class. The tuition balance is due on the first day of class. If you need to cancel your registration, please give a minimum one-week notice. The amount, less the deposit, will be refunded or applied to a future session. No refunds will be given after the third class but may be applied to future sessions. Please note: our rates are subject to change due to inflation and surcharches may be applied based on current gas prices.
Parent Orientation: ONE parent or guardian is required to attend a Parent Orientation (please, only one, as we have limited seating). The Parent Orientation will be the 1st Monday of the month prior. ONE parent will be required to attend, but the students will NOT be required to attend. The specific Parent Orientation dates and times are listed in the description of the class you register for. We are in the process of reworking our Parent Orientation, so this format is subject to change.
Vision Requirements: Students must pass an eye chart examination (20/40 both eyes, or 20/30 if blind in one eye) on the first day of class. If you are unsure of vision, please schedule an eye appointment prior to taking driver's ed. The NH DMV will not let you take the written or driving test if you do not first pass their vision exam.
Driving Requirements: The driving commitment for the students is two to four hours per week of driving/observing with an instructor in order to complete the 10 hours of driving and at least 6 hours of observation with us . The students are also required to have 40 hours of driving time with a parent or guardian, 10 of which have to be night hours, prior to taking their driver's test at the DMV.

NH Driver's Manual: The NH Driver's Manual is required reading in order to prepare for the state written test. You may go to the DMV and request a manual, print it out yourself or download it. Click here to download the manual.
Waitlist: If you do not see the classes available to register, or if we are full, please email me your teen's name and DOB (through the Contact Us link in the upper right corner). We will add them to our waitlist and notify you if we get cancellations. The waitlist does NOT guarantee a spot in a class. Please do NOT call for this, as we are so busy driving. Email is always the best way to reach us and I can check those between hours.
Please select this option if the class you wish to be in is available (not full). If it is full or is not yet on the website, please email us (via contact link) to be added to a waitlist for a specific class. We will notify you if classes open up.
Please note the non-refundable deposit of $150 is due within 15 days of registration.
