How do I know if Alaska Peace Officers Association is licensed by Alaska's DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses?
While we do include Alaska Peace Officers Association's contact information in our driving school directory, we cannot say with certainty as to whether Alaska Peace Officers Association is certified by the State of Alaska.  We recommend that you either contact Alaska Peace Officers Association directly or possibly the Alaska DMV to find out if Alaska Peace Officers Association is a licensed driver training school.
Do you know if I can do my driver training with my mother or father instead of attending a driving school like Alaska Peace Officers Association?
Some states allow teen-agers to do their driver training with their parents instead of attending a professional driving school.  We recommend that you contact the Alaska DMV or Alaska Peace Officers Association directly to find out if Alaska allows parent-taught driver training.
What if I don't know how to operate a vehicle with a stick-shift? Does Alaska Peace Officers Association 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 stick or an automatic, you probably should call Alaska Peace Officers Association to see if they can accommodate your request prior to your enrolling in their behind-the-wheel training course.
I live out in the middle of nowhere. There are rural and mountain roads all around. Will Alaska Peace Officers Association 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 school like Alaska Peace Officers Association will include driving lessons specifically tailored to that terrain. 
Now that I'm 14, will Alaska allow me to get a learner's permit to drive?
Not likely.  Most states require residents to be at least 15 or 15 1/2 years old before applying for a learner's permit.  We recommend that your contact the Alaska DMV office or a Alaska-approved driver training institute such as Alaska Peace Officers Association to learn more about the minimum driving age requirement in Alaska.
I live in Fairbanks Alaska. Does the law say I have to register for both a drivers education classroom or online course and a behind-the-wheel training course in order to be fully-licensed here?

Is there a law in Alaska that says I have to take behind-the-wheel training in order to get my driver's license?
