Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc.FAQ's

Is Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. an approved driving school in Florida?
Just because a driving school appears on our directory of driver training institutions, we cannot guarantee that they are fully licensed to offer hands-on driving courses in Florida.  We highly recommend that you contact Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. directly or the Florida DMV to find out for sure if Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. offers driver training courses that have been approved by the State of Florida.
Could I just have my mother or father give me my behind-the-wheel training instead of paying money to take a professional behind-the-wheel training course?
It depends on which state you live in.  There are some states which allow you to complete your hands-on driver training with a parent or guardian instead of enrolling in a professional driving school.  However many states require that first-time drivers take a professionally-taught driver training course.  We recommend that you check with your state's DMV office to find out if your parent or guardian can fill the role as your behind-the-wheel driving instructor.
I have no clue how to drive a stick-shift vehicle. What happens if Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. makes me train on a manual-shift vehicle?
Considering the fact you are a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating ANY type of vehicle....manual OR automatic!  If you prefer to do your hands-on driver training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. and let them know before you enroll in their driver training course.  That way you'll know for certain whether Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. can accommodate you before you pay them any money.
I live in a small mountain community, where there are a lot of small, unpaved roads. Will my driver training with Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. include learning how to drive in rural 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 Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. will include handling dirt roads and mountain driving.
Are 14-year-olds permitted to obtain a instruction permit in Florida?
Although a few states allow teen-agers to begin practicing how to drive at 14, most states have set the minimum age for which to hold a learner's permit at either 15 or 15½.  You will need to contact the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving instruction company like Gulf Coast Driving Improvement School, Inc. to find out what the minimum age for driving is in Florida. 
Will I be required to enroll in both a drivers education classroom or online course and a driver training course in Pensacola Florida?
