Albemarle County Community Education Driving SchoolFAQ's

Can you tell me if Albemarle County Community Education Driving School is a certified driver training school in Virginia?
Although Albemarle County Community Education Driving School is listed on our list of driving schools in your area, we are unable to say with certainty as to whether they are currently approved to teach hands-on driving courses in Virginia.  We recommend either calling Albemarle County Community Education Driving School directly or the Virginia DMV to find out whether or not Albemarle County Community Education Driving School offers behind-the-wheel training courses that are state-approved.
Do I have to take a behind-the-wheel training course? Can't my parents just give me my driver training?
There are some states that do permit parents or guardians to provide their teen-aged kids' required driver training in order to obtain a driver's license.  However many states do not allow any type of substitution for enrolling in a professionally-taught behind-the-wheel training course.  We suggest you contact your state's DMV to find out what the laws are in your state regarding behind-the-wheel training.
Do I need to tell Albemarle County Community Education Driving School that I need to train with an automatic-shift car? I don't know how to drive a stick-shift vehicle.
Most new drivers don't know how to operate either a stick-shift OR and automatic-shift vehicle!  We recommend that you ask Albemarle County Community Education Driving School if you can complete your driver training using an automatic-shift car before you enroll in their driver training course.
I live in a small mountain town, where there are a lot of small, unpaved roads. Will my behind-the-wheel training with Albemarle County Community Education Driving School include being taught how to drive in remote areas? Or do they just offer training for city driving?
Most local driving schools will likely want their students to be taught how to drive safely in the local area.  Therefore, chances are good that the behind-the-wheel training you receive from Albemarle County Community Education Driving School will include handling unpaved roads and mountain driving.
After I turn 14, will I be eligible to obtain my learner's permit so I can begin to learn how to drive?
It depends on which state you live in, however most states unfortunately require you to be at least 15 (or sometimes 15 1/2) before you can be issued a instruction permit.  We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as Albemarle County Community Education Driving School or the Virginia DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in Virginia.
Can I take Albemarle County Community Education Driving School's driver training course before taking a Charlottesville Virginia defensive driving classroom course or online course?
It depends on what Virginia's laws say.  However, you should know that most states will require teen-aged, first-time drivers to complete both a defensive driving classroom course (which are approximately 30 hours in length, depending on Virginia's laws) or an approved online course, plus a state-approved driver training course.  We recommend that you contact Albemarle County Community Education Driving School directly to see if they offer either (or both) of these courses.
Virginia law says that I must enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course in order to get licensed to drive in Charlottesville Virginia. Is this something that Albemarle County Community Education Driving School can help me with?

What steps do I have to take in order to get a Virginia drivers license in Charlottesville Virginia?
