How can a teen get a learners permit and when can they drive?
At 15 ½ teens are eligible to receive a permit. A minor must complete a CA drivers education course and pass the written test at the DMV. To validate a minor’s permit they must complete one behind the wheel lesson and have your instructor sign the permit then you can start driving with a parent or guardian.

Yes, a student’s 2-hour lesson is your own time, just you and the Instructor. We do "Piggyback" students. An example of this is 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.
