American Driver Training AcademyFAQ's

Since American Driver Training Academy appears on your website, does this mean they are approved by the Delaware DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses?
The list of driver training schools on our webpage is provided as a convenience to our customers only.  We CANNOT guarantee that every single school listed is fully-approved by the Delaware DMV.  You may want to call American Driver Training Academy directly to find out if they offer a state-certified behind-the-wheel training course.
Will the Delaware DMV allow my parents to supervise my driving practice instead of requiring me to take a behind-the-wheel training course at a state-approved driving school?
Possibly.  Some states will allow your parents to supervise your driving practice as a substitute to taking a driver training course with a professional driving instructor.  You will need to contact the Delaware DMV to find out if your behind-the-wheel driving may be done by your parents in Delaware.
I have no clue how to drive a manual-shift vehicle. What happens if American Driver Training Academy makes me train on a manual-shift vehicle?
Considering the fact you are a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating ANY type of vehicle....stick OR automatic!  If you prefer to do your hands-on driver training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call American Driver Training Academy and let them know before you enroll in their behind-the-wheel training course.  That way you'll know for certain whether American Driver Training Academy will be able to accommodate you before you pay them any money.
What happens to those of us who live in a non-urban area? Will American Driver Training Academy include instruction on how to drive on dirt roads, mountain roads, and other rugged?
If you live in a remote location, there is a high probability that a local driving school like American Driver Training Academy will either want--or even be required--to tailor their instruction towards driving safely in your particular locale.
If I'm 14, can I get a driver's permit to drive in Delaware?
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 Delaware Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driving school such as American Driver Training Academy to find out exactly what the minimum age requirement is in Delaware.
Am I required to take a New Castle Delaware classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course through American Driver Training Academy?
This requirement varies by state but most states do mandate new teen-aged drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based driver education course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a driver training course.  You should ask American Driver Training Academy if they offer one or both programs.

Exactly what type of driver education do I need in New Castle Delaware before I can get my Delaware driver's license?
The prerequisites for getting a driver's licenses vary from state to state, however most states now require teen-agers who are looking to get their first driver's license to register for a safe driving classroom course as well as a driver training course.  We suggest that you contact a local driver training company such as American Driver Training Academy and ask if they offer a Delaware-approved  driver training course which would fulfill Delaware's driver's education requirements.
