A Regent Driving SchoolFAQ's
Is A Regent Driving School a licensed driving school in California?
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 California. We highly recommend that you contact A Regent Driving School directly or the California DMV to find out for sure if A Regent Driving School offers hands-on driving courses that have been approved by the State of California.
Could I just have my mother or father give me my behind-the-wheel training instead of paying money to attend a professional behind-the-wheel training course?
It depends on which state you live in. There are some states which permit you to do your hands-on driver training with a parent or guardian instead of enrolling in a professional driving school. However many states require that new drivers take a professionally-taught behind-the-wheel training course. We recommend that you ask your state's DMV office to find out if your parent or guardian can fill the role as your behind-the-wheel driving instructor.
Do I need to tell A Regent Driving School that I need to train with an automatic-shift car? I don't know how to drive a stick-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 A Regent Driving School if you can complete your behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift vehicle before you sign up to take their driver training course.
I live out in the middle of nowhere. There are rural and mountain roads everywhere. Will A Regent Driving School teach me how to drive in BOTH rural AND city areas?
If you live in a rural or mountain area, chances are that a local driving instruction institute like A Regent Driving School will include behind-the-wheel driver training specifically tailored to that terrain.
Can I apply for 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 licensed driving instruction school like A Regent Driving School to learn more about the minimum age requirement in California.
