Prestige Driving SchoolFAQ's
Are all the driving schools listed on your website fully-accredited by the California DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in California?
The driving school directory on our website is for your convenience only, and we cannot absolutely guarantee that every driving school listed is currently licensed to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in California. We suggest you contact the California DMV to make sure a particular driving school is licensed before you sign up to take their driver training course.
Do you know if I can do my behind-the-wheel training with my mother or father instead of attending a behind-the-wheel training course like the ones offered by Prestige Driving School?
Some states allow teen-agers to do their driver training with their parents instead of attending a professional driver training school. We recommend that you contact the California DMV or Prestige Driving School directly to find out if California allows parent-taught driver training.
What if I don't know how to drive a vehicle with a stick-shift? Does Prestige Driving School have an automatic-shift vehicle they'll let me train with?
Since you're just learning how to drive, you probably don't know how to operate either a stick-shift or an automatic-shift vehicle! However, if you have a preference as to a manual or an automatic, you probably should call Prestige Driving School to see if they can accommodate your request prior to your signing up to take their driver training course.
I live in a very remote area, where there are mountains and a lot of dirt roads. Do you know if Prestige Driving School offers training for driving in rural areas like where I live instead of just driving on smooth, paved roads in city areas?
Since you live in a rural area, a local driving school such as Prestige Driving School will tailor your behind-the-wheel training to handle the conditions in your area.
Can I get my California instruction permit once I turn 14?
Most likely, no. Most states have set the minimum age to obtain an instruction permit at 15 or 15½. You may want to contact the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driver training school like Prestige Driving School to learn more about the minimum age requirement in California.
Do I have to complete a Canoga Park California drivers education classroom course or online course before signing up to take one of Prestige Driving School's driver training courses?
Each state has its own rules, but most states will require first-time drivers to take both a driver training course plus either a defensive driving classroom course (which are about 30 hours in length) or an approved online defensive driving course. You may want to ask Prestige Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
California law says that I must successfully complete a behind-the-wheel training course in order to get licensed to drive in Canoga Park California. Is this something that Prestige Driving School can help me with?
Yes, Prestige Driving School offers the California-approved driver training course. For more information about their classes and instruction schedule, please contact Prestige Driving School directly.
Do I have to take drivers education to get a California driver's license?
Drivers education requirements vary depending on which state you live in, but you should be aware that most states require new, teen-aged drivers to complete both a driver training course in addition to a drivers education classroom or online course. You may wish to contact the California DMV to find out exactly what requirements you will need to meet in order to obtain your first driver's license.
Is hands-on driver training required in California in order to be licensed to operate a motor vehicle?
Absolutely. All new drivers in California must take an approved driver training course before they can be issued a license to independently drive a motor vehicle.
Is it possible to enroll in a California-approved driver training course before I obtain my California learners permit?
It depends on what the specific laws are in California, however most states require first-time drivers to receive an instruction permit before signing up for a behind-the-wheel training course. We recommend you contact a driving school such as Prestige Driving School to obtain more information.
