C & O Driving SchoolFAQ's
Are all the driving schools listed on your website fully-certified by the Michigan DMV to offer driver 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 accredited to offer driving training courses in Michigan. We suggest you contact the Michigan DMV to make sure a particular driving school is certified before you enroll in their driving course.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving instructor in Michigan, so taking a Dearborn behind-the-wheel training course like the one C & O Driving School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the Michigan DMV or a licensed driving school like C & O Driving School and ask them. While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
I can't operate a stick-shift. Will C & O Driving School allow me to do my driver training on an automatic-shift vehicle?
We recommend that you contact C & O Driving School and ask them if you can do your behind-the-wheel training using a vehicle that has an automatic shift before registering for their behind-the-wheel training course.
I live in a small mountain community, where there are a lot of small, unpaved roads. Will my driver training with C & O Driving School include being taught how to drive in rural areas? Or do they just offer training for city driving?
Most local driving schools will likely want their students to know how to drive safely in the local area. Therefore, chances are good that the behind-the-wheel training you receive from C & O Driving School will include handling dirt roads and mountain driving.
Are 14-year-olds eligible to obtain a learner's permit in Michigan?
Although a few states allow teen-agers to begin practicing how to drive at 14, most states have set the youngest age for which to hold a learner's permit at either 15 or 15½. You will need to contact the Michigan Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driving instruction company like C & O Driving School to find out what the minimum age for driving is in Michigan.
Do you know if the laws in Michigan require new teen-aged drivers to enroll in a driver training course in addition to a drivers education classroom or online course?
The laws vary from state to state, but many states do require you to successfully complete a behind-the-wheel training course with "hands-on" practice in addition to a driver ed classroom or online course.
Michigan's DMV has told me that I need to take a driver training course. Do you know if C & O Driving School offers this course or not?

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 require all new, young drivers to sign up to take a drivers education classroom or online course as well as a behind-the-wheel training course. C & O Driving School may be able to help you fulfill the driver training requirement in Michigan. Please contact either C & O Driving School or the Michigan DMV for more information.
Is hands-on driver training required in Michigan in order to be licensed to operate a motor vehicle?

Is it all right if I sign up with a driver training school like C & O Driving School prior to my obtaining my learner's permit?
