Yes, a student's 2-hour lesson is your own time, just you and the instructor. We do "Piggyback" students. This is a situation where the instructor's previous student picks up the next student. The previous student is then driven to their drop-off location by the second student. "Piggybacking" in NO WAY interferes with your 2-hour lesson. However, it may cause a minor delay in your return time. If you do not wish to be "Piggybacked", please call our office to inquire about other options.
