I heard that parents can fill the role of driving instructor in South Carolina, so taking a Columbia driving school course like the one A-1 Driver Training School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the South Carolina DMV or a licensed driving school like A-1 Driver Training School and ask them.  While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
I can't drive a manual-shift. Will A-1 Driver Training School allow me to complete my behind-the-wheel training on an automatic-shift vehicle?
We recommend that you contact A-1 Driver Training School and ask them if you can do your behind-the-wheel training using a vehicle that has an automatic shift before signing up to take their driver training course.
The area in which I live is mostly undeveloped--very few paved roads and mountains are all around. Will A-1 Driver Training School be able to teach me how to drive safely on bumpy terrain as well as in a city or town?

Now that I'm 14, will South Carolina allow me to get an instruction permit to drive?
Not likely.  Most states require residents to be at least 15 or 15 1/2 years old before applying for an instruction permit.  We recommend that your contact the South Carolina DMV office or a South Carolina-approved driving school such as A-1 Driver Training School to learn more about the minimum driving age requirement in South Carolina.
Do I have to complete a Columbia South Carolina drivers education classroom course or online course before signing up to take one of A-1 Driver Training 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 drivers education classroom course (which are about 30 hours in length) or an approved online drivers education course.  You may want to ask A-1 Driver Training School if they offer one or both programs.

Yes.  State law in South Carolina mandates that all teen-agers take an approved behind-the-wheel training course before receiving a South Carolina driver's license.
