Chico's Driving CenterFAQ's

Is Chico's Driving Center a certified driving school in New Hampshire?
Just because a driving school appears on our directory of driver training institutions, we cannot guarantee that they are fully licensed to offer hands-on driving courses in New Hampshire.  We highly recommend that you contact Chico's Driving Center directly or the New Hampshire DMV to find out for sure if Chico's Driving Center offers driver training courses that have been approved by the State of New Hampshire.
I've been told that either of my parents can supervise my behind-the-wheel training, so I don't have to attend a Manchester New Hampshire driving school like Chico's Driving Center to fulfill my driver training requirement. Do you know if that's true or not?
You will need to contact the New Hampshire DMV or a state-approved driving school like Chico's Driving Center to find out.  Some states do allow parent-taught driving, but many states do not.
Do I need to tell Chico's Driving Center that I need to train with an automatic-shift automobile? I don't know how to operate a manual-shift car.
Most new drivers don't know how to operate either a manual-shift OR and automatic-shift automobile!  We recommend that you ask Chico's Driving Center if you can complete your behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift automobile before you enroll in their driver training course.
What happens to those of us who live in a rural area? Will Chico's Driving Center include instruction on how to drive on dirt roads, mountain roads, and other rugged?

After I turn 14, will I be eligible to get my learner's permit so I can begin to learn how to drive?
It depends on which state you live in, however most states unfortunately require you to be at least 15 (or sometimes 15 1/2) before you can be issued a instruction permit.  We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as Chico's Driving Center or the New Hampshire DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in New Hampshire.
Do I have to take a Manchester New Hampshire classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a driver training course through Chico's Driving Center?
