I've been told that either of my parents can supervise my behind-the-wheel training, so I don't have to attend a California driving school like A Auto Driving School to fulfill my driver training requirement. Do you know if that's true or not?
You will need to contact the California DMV or a state-approved driver training school like A Auto Driving School to find out. Some states do allow parent-taught driving, but many states do not.
What if I don't know how to operate a stick-shift automobile? Does A Auto Driving School have automatic-shift vehicles that I can drive when I do my behind-the-wheel training?
If you're taking a California behind-the-wheel training class, chances are you don't know how to drive ANY vehicle yet-- manual or automatic. However, if you prefer an automatic vehicle then you should tell A Auto Driving School that prior to signing up to take the course in order to make sure they can accommodate you.
What happens to those of us who live in a rural area? Will A Auto Driving School include instruction on how to drive on dirt roads, mountain roads, and other bumpy terrain?
If you live in a rural location, there is a high probability that a local driver training school like A Auto Driving School will either want--or even be required--to tailor their instruction towards driving safely in your particular locale.
Can I apply for my California learner's permit once I turn 14?

Each state has its own laws, 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 defensive driving course. You may want to ask A Auto Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
