Driver Education FAQs

What is the Graduated Driver License Program/Law?2021-06-04T16:40:48-05:00

The Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) System places certain restrictions on teens under the age of 18 who have learner permits and driver licenses. The law went into effect on July 1, 2001. Applicants who are 18 or older and teens who have graduated from high school are not affected by the GDL law. Anyone under the age of 18 who has a learner permit will be prohibited from driving between the hours of 10pm and 6am When driving, permit holders must have a licensed driver age 21 or older in the vehicle with them. Seatbelt use is mandatory for everyone in the vehicle and passengers age 3 and under must be in an approved child restraint device. For more information about Graduated Licensing, visit the Tennessee Graduated Driver License Program.

Can I pick the car and driver I want?2021-06-06T21:19:04-05:00

We have a wide selection of cars available. You can request any available vehicle for your driving hours. We also have several supervising drivers available if you have a favorite instructor you’d prefer to drive with.

Will I get school credit for this class?2021-04-19T20:09:49-05:00

Some school systems may offer extracurricular credit for the successful completion of this course. It’s best to check with your school’s counselor to see if you qualify. If you do, we’ll provide the proof for their records.

If I must miss some class time, what happens?2021-06-06T21:11:51-05:00

Sometimes unexpected things happen. If you cannot attend some of your classes, we are happy to have you attend a makeup class during the next session. Please notify your instructor if you cannot attend class for any reason.

Why do I need this class if I already know how to drive?2021-04-19T20:09:13-05:00

Local laws, requirements and rules of the road can change. Plus, where else can you learn to drive correctly, safely AND potentially save on your insurance premiums?

We offer a discount to military students and students who have a sibling taking the course at the same time. In order to receive the discount, you must provide verification of military ID or sibling enrollment during registration. For more information call 1-800-865-0981.

How do I know if I’m eligible for insurance discounts?2021-06-06T21:06:37-05:00
