Are all the driving schools listed on your website fully-licensed by the Alaska DMV to offer driver training courses in Alaska?
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 behind-the-wheel training courses in Alaska. We suggest you contact the Alaska DMV to make sure a particular driving school is accredited before you register for their driving course.
Is it true that my mom or dad can be my driving instructor when I do my behind-the-wheel training instead of a professional driver training school instructor like the ones they have at CEE - Fairbanks?
It depends on what your state's laws are. You should contact the Alaska DMV or a licensed driving school like CEE - Fairbanks to find out if Alaska allows behind-the-wheel training with a parent.
I can't drive a stick-shift. Will CEE - Fairbanks allow me to do my driver training on an automatic-shift vehicle?
We recommend that you contact CEE - Fairbanks and ask them if you can do your driver training using a vehicle that has an automatic shift before registering for their driver training course.
Since I live way out in a remote location where driving on unpaved roads and rugged terrain is the norm, will CEE - Fairbanks be able to teach me how to drive in a rural environment? Or do they only prepare you for city-driving?

You may want to contact the Alaska DMV or a Alaska-approved driver training school like CEE - Fairbanks to find out what the minimum age to drive is in Alaska.
Can I take CEE - Fairbanks's driver training course before taking a Fairbanks Alaska defensive driving classroom course or online course?
It depends on what Alaska's laws prescribe.

We recommend that you contact CEE - Fairbanks directly to see if they offer either (or both) of these courses.
