Is Allstate Driving Instruction an approved driving school in Vermont?
Just because a driving school appears on our directory of driver training institutions, we cannot guarantee that they are fully licensed to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in Vermont.  We highly recommend that you contact Allstate Driving Instruction directly or the Vermont DMV to find out for sure if Allstate Driving Instruction offers driver training courses that have been approved by the State of Vermont.
Do I have to take a behind-the-wheel training course? Can't my parents just give me my behind-the-wheel training?
There are some states that do allow parents or guardians to provide their teen-aged kids' required behind-the-wheel training in order to obtain a driver's license.  However many states do not allow any type of substitution for enrolling in a professionally-taught driver training course.  We suggest you contact your state's DMV to find out what the laws are in your state regarding hands-on driving instruction.
Do you know if Allstate Driving Instruction will let me complete my behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift vehicle? I don't know anything about using a stick-shift.
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know a whole lot about driving ANY type of vehicle, be it a stick OR an automatic!  Nevertheless, if you have a preference, you probably should contact Allstate Driving Instruction and see if they can accommodate you before registering for their behind-the-wheel training course.
What happens to those of us who live in a rural area? Will Allstate Driving Instruction include instruction on how to drive on dirt roads, mountain roads, and other bumpy terrain?
If you live in a remote location, there is a high probability that a local driving school like Allstate Driving Instruction will either want--or even be required--to tailor their instruction towards driving safely in your particular area.
If I'm 14, can I get a driver's permit to drive in Vermont?
Possibly.  However, you should be aware that most states require you to be at least 15½ years old before you can get a learner's permit.  We recommend that you contact the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving school such as Allstate Driving Instruction to find out exactly what the minimum age requirement is in Vermont.
Do I have to take both a defensive driving classroom course and a driver training course in Rutland Vermont to get my Vermont driver's license?
The laws vary depending on which state you live in, but most states do require that pre-licensed drivers enroll in a drivers education classroom course and a driver training course.  You may want to call a driving instruction company like Allstate Driving Instruction and find out if they offer either (or both) of these programs.

Is hands-on driver training required in Vermont in order to be licensed to drive a car?

Can I sign up to take a Vermont-approved driver training course even if I don't have my Vermont learners permit yet?
