Somebody told me that I can skip out of attending a driver training school if my parents give me behind-the-wheel training instead. Is that permissible in Colorado?
Each state has its own laws regarding behind-the-wheel training. Some states will allow parentally-supervised driver training as a substitute for enrolling in a behind-the-wheel training course which is taught by a professional driving instructor. However, not all states allow this. You should contact the Colorado DMV to find out for sure.
Do I need to tell Colorado Driving Institute that I need to train with an automatic-shift vehicle? I don't know how to operate a stick-shift vehicle.
Most new drivers don't know how to operate either a stick-shift OR and automatic-shift car! We recommend that you ask Colorado Driving Institute if you can complete your driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle before you register 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 Colorado Driving Institute be able to teach me how to drive in a non-urban environment? Or do they only prepare you for city-driving?
