- Top Most Asked Behind the Wheel Driving Lesson Questions

    The Top 5 Most Common Questions
  • How often should I schedule my child's driving lessons?
  • Every new driver learns at a different pace, so there is no all-encompassing answer to this frequent question. For many students, we recommend that they take at least 2-3 weeks between lessons so they have time to practice and reinforce concepts learned in the previous lesson.

    However, we realize that many students and their parents have a busy schedule and can't always find meaningful time to practice driving each week. In this case, we recommend adding additional drivers training lessons so we can see to it that your son or daughter is getting adequate practice time behind the wheel.
  • Can I get the same instructor for all the lessons?
  • When possible, we will do our best to accommodate this request. Sometimes this is not possible because all of our instructors are excellent and have several requests and varying schedules/shifts that they can work. However, Drivers Ed Direct is proud to have en entire team of well-liked and qualified instructors to help accommodate you in a timely manner and ensure that you get the highest quality education possible.

  • Do I have to enroll in drivers training before getting my permit?
  • No, you no longer need proof of drivers training enrollment when you go to get your permit at the CADMV. For a complete list of everything you need before applying for a permit, visit our State Requirements Checklist for Minors.
  • How much do your in-car drivers training lessons cost?
  • The pricing of our drivers training services depends on the services you need. We have several options to choose from that help you save money, including 6-hour, 10-hour, and 20-hour packages. We also offer individual 2-hour lessons, DMV test preparation lessons, and defensive driving lessons. In addition, you can save even more money when you purchase a 'combo package': our in-car drivers training lessons along with our online drivers education course.

  • How many instructors do you have? Is it hard to schedule a lesson?
  • Drivers Ed Direct has a variety of licensed male and female instructors ready to help meet your drivers training needs. We are committed to accommodating your schedule requests and strive to get you on the schedule when convenient for you.

    Other General Behind the Wheel Training Questions
  • Does your driving school offer group discounts?
  • Drivers Ed Direct offers discounts when you sign up 2 or more students at a time. For more information, please call us toll free at (800) 728-1048 or email us at
  • I’m on the payment plan, how often do I call in with payment?
  • The great thing about our payment plan program is there is no ‘due date.’ When you decide to schedule the next lesson is when we collect the next payment.
  • Can you guarantee my son or daughter will pass?
  • Drivers Ed Direct guarantees your son or daughter will get the best behind-the-wheel training available. In addition, we will have practice tests and discuss the DMV driving exam in our lessons. However, remember that you, the parent, play a crucial part in your child’s driving career. After your teen completes their behind-the-wheel training with Drivers Ed Direct, you will need to drive with them as well to continue to reinforce the principles of safe driving and practice the skills learned during the drivers training sessions.
  • What type of insurance do you have? Do I have to pay for the insurance?
  • All DMV licensed driving schools must have adequate insurance that is verified by the DMV. Drivers Ed Direct is California DMV licensed driving school DS#E4141 and has complete insurance coverage for all our vehicles. Our students and their parents do not have to pay anything extra for insurance.
  • What is defensive driving?
  • The principal aspects of this program will not only teach our students the basics of learning how to drive, but will also emphasize the importance of defensive driving and collision avoidance, which is sometimes overlooked by other driving schools. Our instructors will teach our students how to drive defensively so they can watch their own actions and the actions of other drivers as well and modify their driving habits according to their surroundings.
  • How long has Drivers Ed Direct been in business?
  • Since 1994, our partner company has been instructing drivers throughout CA including teenage drivers with an online driver's education course. In 2005, branched off its teen driver ed class and adding a groundbreaking in-car training curriculum formed Drivers Ed Direct. As a separate organization, Drivers Ed Direct has been able to concentrate on creating drivers education courses and driver training services more focused on the needs of teenagers and new drivers. Since forming Drivers Ed Direct, we have provided over 60,000 hours of training to students driving over 2 million miles!
