Community Driving SchoolFAQ's
Is Community Driving School a certified driving school in Colorado?
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 Colorado. We highly recommend that you contact Community Driving School directly or the Colorado DMV to find out for sure if Community Driving School offers behind-the-wheel training courses that have been approved by the State of Colorado.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving instructor in Colorado, so taking a Westminster behind-the-wheel training course like the one Community Driving School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the Colorado DMV or a licensed driving school like Community Driving School and ask them. While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
Do I need to tell Community Driving School 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 vehicle! We recommend that you ask Community Driving School if you can complete your driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle before you sign up to take their driver training course.
I live in a very remote area, where there are mountains and a lot of unpaved roads. Do you know if Community Driving School offers training for driving in rural areas like where I live instead of just driving on smooth, paved roads in urban areas?
Since you live in a rural area, a local driving school such as Community Driving School will tailor your behind-the-wheel training to handle the conditions in your area.
Can I get my Colorado instruction permit once I turn 14?
Most likely, no. Most states have set the minimum age to obtain an instruction permit at 15 or 15½. You may want to contact the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driver training school like Community Driving School to learn more about the minimum age requirement in Colorado.
Can I take Community Driving School's behind-the-wheel training course before taking a Westminster Colorado defensive driving classroom course or online course?
It depends on what Colorado's laws say. However, you should know that most states will require teen-aged, first-time drivers to complete both a drivers education classroom course (which are approximately 30 hours in length, depending on Colorado's laws) or an approved online course, plus a state-approved driver training course. We recommend that you contact Community Driving School directly to see if they offer either (or both) of these courses.
