Since Drive Zone appears on your website, does this mean they've been approved by the Indiana DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses?
The list of driver training schools on our webpage is provided as a convenience to our customers only. We CANNOT guarantee that every single school listed is fully-certified by the Indiana DMV. You may want to call Drive Zone directly to find out if they offer a state-certified behind-the-wheel training course.
Somebody told me that I can skip out of attending a driver training school if my parents give me behind-the-wheel training instead. Is that permissible in Indiana?
Each state has its own rules regarding behind-the-wheel training. Some states will allow parentally-supervised behind-the-wheel training as a substitute for enrolling in a driver training course which is taught by a professional driving instructor. However, not all states allow this. You should contact the Indiana DMV to find out for sure.
I have no clue how to drive a manual-shift vehicle. What happens if Drive Zone makes me train on a stick-shift vehicle?
Considering the fact you are a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating ANY type of vehicle....stick OR automatic! If you prefer to do your hands-on driver training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call Drive Zone and let them know before you sign up to take their behind-the-wheel training course. That way you'll know for sure whether Drive Zone can accommodate you before you pay them any money.
I live out in the middle of nowhere. There are rural and mountain roads all around. Will Drive Zone teach me how to drive in BOTH rural AND city areas?
If you live in a rural or mountain area, chances are that a local driving school like Drive Zone will include driving lessons specifically tailored to that terrain.
After I turn 14, will I be eligible to get my instruction 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 Drive Zone or the Indiana DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in Indiana.
Do you know if the laws in Indiana require new teen-aged drivers to register for a driver training course in addition to a driver ed classroom or online course?
The laws vary from state to state, but many states do require you to register for a behind-the-wheel training course with "hands-on" practice in addition to a drivers education classroom or online course.
