Drive Safe students who have completed the Drive Safe, LLC. online inquiry forms will receive a reply email by the driver education secretary. She will then ask for additional information and answer any pending question you may have before reserving a seat. Those students who have rather reserve over the phone may leave a message on the automated answering machine including their name (first, last), DOB, telephone number, and preferred class start date. Most phone calls are returned by the weekend as we are full time educators during the week. Rarely, Drive Safe, LLC. is able to accommodate “drop in” students.
Class dates are posted on class registration. HOWEVER, there will be some exceptions depending on school vacations, observed holidays, weather, etc. All teachers strive to avoid planning classes during school vacations ,so students can join their parents on vacations.

Yes, Ideal it is good to have the student acquainted to the driver’s seat. At least 5 hours. Start out in the parking lot with basic car control. Starting the engine, moving the vehicle, turning the wheel. Stops and goes. This will help the student to be little more at ease before the course starts. Remember the state requires 40 hours of supervised instructions with parent/guardian before they can go to the DMV for testing.
The idea is to offer a quality program. It is with smaller classes that the teachers can better individualize to meet each student’s needs. Learning to drive safely is the most important skill a young person can learn. Statistics state this, as well a review of the daily newspapers. This takes time and patience in a well-coordinated, sequential way. The instructor’s philosophy is to build a solid foundation of basic skills aligned with working as close as possible with parents.
