Cardenal Driving SchoolFAQ's

Cardenal Driving School's contact information is listed on your webpage. How can I find out if it is an approved behind the wheel training school in Illinois?
Even though we provide a list of behind-the-wheel training schools on our website, we have no way of knowing for sure as to whether or not a particular school is licensed by the Illinois DMV to offer driver training courses.  We strongly suggest that you contact Cardenal Driving School directly or check with the Illinois DMV to find out for sure if Cardenal Driving School is a licensed school.
I've been told that either of my parents can supervise my behind-the-wheel training, so I don't have to attend a Chicago Illinois driving school like Cardenal Driving School to fulfill my driver training requirement. Do you know if that's true or not?
You will need to contact the Illinois DMV or a state-approved driving school like Cardenal Driving School to find out.  Some states do allow parent-taught driving, but many states do not.
What happens if I don't know how to drive a stick-shift vehicle? Will Cardenal Driving School allow me to do my driver training with an automatic-shift automobile?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about driving any type of vehicle--manual-shift or automatic-shift!  However, if you prefer to complete your driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Cardenal 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 bumpy terrain all around my house. How do I know if Cardenal 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 Cardenal Driving School is a local driver training company in your area, it's a safe bet that Cardenal Driving School will be motivated (or perhaps required) to teach its local customers how to drive on bumpy terrain.  If you want to make certain, however, you may want to call Cardenal Driving School to find out exactly what's included in their driver training course before you sign up with them.
I just turned 14 years old. Can I apply for my instruction permit in Illinois?

Do I have to take both a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course in Chicago Illinois to get my Illinois driver's license?
