CEE - AnchorageFAQ's
CEE - Anchorage is listed on your website as a driving school which offers driver training courses. How do I know if CEE - Anchorage is a certified school in Alaska?
While we include a list of driver training schools on our website for your convenience, we cannot guarantee that every single one of them is currently licensed by the Alaska DMV. We suggest you contact CEE - Anchorage directly or the Alaska DMV to find out if CEE - Anchorage is a fully-accredited driving school.
Will the Alaska 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 in place of taking a driver training course with a professional driving instructor. You will need to contact the Alaska DMV to find out if your driver training may be done by your parents in Alaska.
What if I don't know how to drive a vehicle with a stick-shift? Does CEE - Anchorage have an automatic-shift vehicle they'll allow me train with?
Since you're just learning how to drive, you probably don't know how to operate either a manual-shift or an automatic-shift vehicle! However, if you have a preference as to a stick or an automatic, you probably should call CEE - Anchorage to see if they can accommodate your request prior to your enrolling in their driver training course.
I live in a small rural town, where there are a lot of small, unpaved roads. Will my behind-the-wheel training with CEE - Anchorage include learning 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 CEE - Anchorage will include handling dirt roads and mountain driving.
If I'm 14, can I get an instruction permit to drive in Alaska?
Possibly. However, you should be aware that most states require you to be at least 15½ years old before you can get an instruction permit. We recommend that you contact the Alaska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driving school such as CEE - Anchorage to find out exactly what the minimum age requirement is in Alaska.
Do I have to take a Anchorage Alaska classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course through CEE - Anchorage?
This requirement varies by state but most states do require 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 CEE - Anchorage if they offer one or both programs.
Alaska law says that I must successfully complete a driver training course in order to get licensed to drive in Anchorage Alaska. Is this something that CEE - Anchorage can help me with?
Yes, CEE - Anchorage offers the Alaska-approved behind-the-wheel training course. For more information about their classes and instruction schedule, please contact CEE - Anchorage directly.
What type of driver ed do I need before Alaska 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 complete a drivers education classroom or online course as well as a driver training course. CEE - Anchorage may be able to help you meet the driver training requirement in Alaska. Please contact either CEE - Anchorage or the Alaska DMV for more information.
