Carolina Driving SchoolFAQ's

Since Carolina Driving School is listed on your website, does this mean they are approved by the North Carolina DMV to offer driver training courses?
The list of driver training schools on our webpage is provided as a convenience to our customers only.  We CANNOT guarantee that every single school listed is fully-certified by the North Carolina DMV.  You may want to call Carolina Driving School directly to find out if they offer a state-certified behind-the-wheel training course.
Will the North Carolina 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 as a substitute to taking a driver training course with a professional driving instructor.  You will need to contact the North Carolina DMV to find out if your driver training may be done by your parents in North Carolina.
What happens if I don't know how to drive a stick-shift vehicle? Will Carolina Driving School allow me to do my behind-the-wheel training with an automatic-shift vehicle?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating any type of car--stick-shift or automatic-shift!  However, if you prefer to complete your driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Carolina Driving School and let them know before you enroll in 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 dirt roads and rugged terrain all around my house. How do I know if Carolina Driving School will train me on how to drive in a remote area like where I live and not just teach me how to drive in a town-or city-type environment?
Since Carolina Driving School is a local driver training company in your area, it's a safe bet that Carolina Driving School will be motivated (or perhaps required) to teach its local customers how to drive on rugged terrain.  If you want to make certain, however, you may want to call Carolina Driving School to find out exactly what's included in their behind-the-wheel training course before you register with them.
I just turned 14 years old. Am I eligible to receive my instruction permit in North Carolina?
Probably not.  The minimum age requirement for holding an instruction permit in most states is 15 1/2.  You should contact the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driver training institute such as Carolina Driving School to find out more information about the minimum age requirement in North Carolina. 
Do I have to take both a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course in Winston-Salem North Carolina to get my North Carolina driver's license?
The laws vary depending on which state you live in, but most states do require that pre-licensed drivers register for a defensive driving classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course.  You may want to call a driving instruction company like Carolina Driving School and find out if they offer either (or both) of these programs.

What are the requirements in Winston-Salem North Carolina for obtaining a drivers license?
