Around Town Driving SchoolFAQ's
Are all the driving schools listed on your website fully-licensed by the Michigan DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in Michigan?
The driving school directory on our website is for your convenience only, and we cannot absolutely guarantee that every driving school listed is currently licensed to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in Michigan. We suggest you contact the Michigan DMV to make sure a particular driving school is accredited before you register for their driver training course.
Do you know if I can do my driver training with my mother or father instead of attending a driving school like Around Town Driving School?
Some states allow teen-agers to do their driver training with their parents instead of attending a professional driver training school. We recommend that you contact the Michigan DMV or Around Town Driving School directly to find out if Michigan allows parent-taught behind-the-wheel training.
What happens if I don't know how to operate a stick-shift vehicle? Will Around Town Driving School allow me to do my driver training with an automatic-shift car?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating any type of car--manual-shift or automatic-shift! However, if you prefer to complete your behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Around Town Driving School and inform them before you sign up to take their driver training course. That way you will know for certain if they will accommodate you.
I don't live anywhere near a city. There are unpaved roads and rugged terrain all around my house. How do I know if Around Town Driving School will train me on how to drive in a rural area like where I live and not just teach me how to drive in a town-or city-type environment?
Since Around Town Driving School is a local driver training company in your area, it's a safe bet that Around Town Driving School will be motivated (or perhaps required) to teach its local customers how to drive on rough terrain. If you want to make certain, however, you may want to call Around Town Driving School to find out exactly what's included in their behind-the-wheel training course before you sign up with them.
Now that I'm 14, will Michigan 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 Michigan DMV office or a Michigan-approved driver training institute such as Around Town Driving School to learn more about the minimum driving age requirement in Michigan.
Do I have to take a South Lyon Michigan classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course through Around Town Driving School?
This requirement varies by state but most states do mandate pre-licensed drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based defensive driving course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a driver training course. You should ask Around Town Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
Does Around Town Driving School provide a hands-on driver training course like the one that is required by the State of Michigan? I need to sign up for one in order to obtain my driver license.
Around Town Driving School offers hands-on driver training courses which are approved by the Michigan DMV. You may want to contact Around Town Driving School directly for more information about their courses and how to go about registering for one.
What type of driver ed do I need before Michigan will give me a driver's license?
Each state has its own requirements concerning drivers education, although you should know that most states now mandate all new, young drivers to register for a drivers education classroom or online course as well as a behind-the-wheel training course. Around Town Driving School may be able to help you fulfill the driver training requirement in Michigan. Please contact either Around Town Driving School or the Michigan DMV for more information.
Is it necessary for me to complete a behind-the-wheel training course in order to get my first Michigan driver's license?
Yes, it is. All teen-aged drivers applying for their first driver's license in Michigan are required to take a state-approved behind-the-wheel training course.
Do I need to have my learner's permit before I register for a behind-the-wheel training course like the one that Around Town Driving School offers?
