Horizons Driving AcademyFAQ's

Horizons Driving Academy is listed on your website as a driving school which offers behind-the-wheel training courses. How do I know if Horizons Driving Academy is a licensed school in Kansas?
While we include a list of driving schools on our website for your convenience, we cannot guarantee that every single one of them is currently licensed by the Kansas DMV.  We suggest you contact Horizons Driving Academy directly or the Kansas DMV to find out if Horizons Driving Academy is a fully-accredited driving school.
Will the Kansas DMV allow my parents to supervise my driving practice instead of requiring me to take a behind-the-wheel training course at a state-approved driving school?
Possibly.  Some states will allow your parents to supervise your driving practice as a substitute to taking a behind-the-wheel driving course with a professional driving instructor.  You will need to contact the Kansas DMV to find out if your behind-the-wheel driving may be done by your parents in Kansas.
Do I need to tell Horizons Driving Academy that I need to train with an automatic-shift car? I don't know how to drive a manual-shift vehicle.
Most new drivers don't know how to operate either a manual-shift OR and automatic-shift car!  We recommend that you ask Horizons Driving Academy if you can complete your behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift automobile before you sign up to take their driver training course.
I live in a remote area, that has a lot of dirt roads and rugged terrain. Will Horizons Driving Academy train me how to drive in BOTH city AND rural environments?
If you live in a remote area, chances are very good that a local driving school like Horizons Driving Academy will want you to be trained in driving specific to the local area's terrain.
I'm turning 14 in a few days. Can I get a learner's permit to drive in Kansas after my 14th birthday?
Most likely, no.  Most states (though not all) have laws which require that you be at least 15 or 15 1/2 before to be eligible to apply for an instruction permit.  Nevertheless, you may wish to contact the Kansas DMV office or a Kansas-certified driving school such as Horizons Driving Academy to find out for certain what the minimum driving age is in your local area.
Do I have to take a Salina Kansas classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course through Horizons Driving Academy?
This requirement varies from state to state but most states do mandate pre-licensed drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based defensive driving course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a behind-the-wheel training course.  You should ask Horizons Driving Academy if they offer one or both programs.
I am looking to sign up to take a Salina Kansas defensive driving course. Can Horizons Driving Academy assist me with this?

I live in Salina Kansas. What are the requirements for me to be able to get my first Kansas driver's license?
It depends on the particular laws of Kansas, but most states require teen-aged first-time license applicants to successfully complete both a safe driving classroom course and a driver training course.  Horizons Driving Academy may offer courses which would fulfill the behind-the-wheel training requirement, however you will need to contact them directly to find out exactly what types of courses they offer.
I live in Salina Kansas and would like to apply for my first driver's license. Do I need to take a driver training course before I can be licensed?
Kansas law requires that all new drivers sign up for an approved driver training program before receiving their Kansas driver's license.  Horizons Driving Academy may offer a driver training course that you are looking for.  Please contact Horizons Driving Academy directly for complete information as to what types of driver training courses they offer.
Can I sign up to take a Kansas-approved driver training course even if I don't have my Kansas instruction permit yet?
Most likely, no.  Most states have laws that mandate a pre-licensed driver to have obtained a Kansas learners permit before registering in a Kansas driver training course.  It would be best for you to contact a driving school such as Horizons Driving Academy and ask for more information.
