All students are required to give at least 48 hours’ notice to the school for canceling the drive times. Cancellation of a drive time with less than 24 hours’ notice, FOR ANY REASON, will result in a $50.00 cancellation fee. Students will not be able to schedule the remaining BTW lessons unless the late cancellation fee has been paid.
The driving lessons are scheduled after the class portion is completed. Students will receive a link to schedule their 3 lessons, its their responsibility to choose and share the dates with their parents/guardians. The driving school WILL NOT call or email their scheduled dates so make sure there are no conflicts with the dates/times chosen. The driving lessons typically begin 10 – 12 weeks after completing the class portion during off-peak months of the year. During the summer, we are at higher capacity so it can be 14 to 18 weeks wait time. However, if the student is flexible with their schedule during school year, it is possible to complete the driving lessons much sooner. If student is only available on weekends, then please expect longer wait time for drive times because weekends get filled up very quickly. If the student does NOT have a permit yet, they can not schedule their driving lessons until they pass the permit test at the MVA. Once they pass, they must call or email the driving school to schedule their driving lessons. We are not required to send reminders for the scheduled lessons, the student is responsible for noting the dates and times chosen, if anything needs to be adjusted, they must notify the driving school to make the changes to avoid the cancellation fees.
