Derry Auto SchoolFAQ's

Derry Auto School's contact information is listed on your webpage. How can I find out if it is a licensed behind the wheel training school in New Hampshire?
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 New Hampshire DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses.  We strongly suggest that you contact Derry Auto School directly or check with the New Hampshire DMV to find out for sure if Derry Auto School is a licensed school.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving supervisor in New Hampshire, so taking a Manchester behind-the-wheel training course like the one Derry Auto School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the New Hampshire DMV or a licensed driving school like Derry Auto School and ask them.  While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
What happens if I don't know how to drive a manual-shift vehicle? Will Derry Auto School allow me to do my driver training with an automatic-shift vehicle?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about driving any type of car--manual-shift or automatic-shift!  However, if you prefer to complete your driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Derry Auto 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 live in a rural area, that has a lot of dirt roads and rugged terrain. Will Derry Auto School teach me how to drive in BOTH city AND rural environments?
If you live in a remote area, chances are very good that a local driver training school like Derry Auto School will want you to be trained in driving specific to the local area's terrain.
Can I get my New Hampshire instruction permit once I turn 14?
Most likely, no.  Most states have set the youngest age to obtain a learner's permit at 15 or 15½.  You may want to contact the New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving instruction school like Derry Auto School to learn more about the minimum age requirement in New Hampshire.
I live in Manchester New Hampshire. Does the law say I have to enroll in both a drivers education classroom or online course and a behind-the-wheel training course in order to be fully-licensed here?
Each state has its own laws in regards to licensing procedures.  However, most states do mandate that new, teen-aged drivers successfully complete both a driver training course plus either a drivers education online course or drivers education classroom course .
New Hampshire law says that I must successfully complete a hands-on driver training course in order to get licensed to drive in Manchester New Hampshire. Is this something that Derry Auto School can help me with?

I live in Manchester New Hampshire. What requirements must I meet to be able to get my first New Hampshire driver's license?
It depends on the particular laws of New Hampshire, but most states require teen-aged first-time license applicants to successfully complete both a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course.  Derry Auto School may offer courses which would meet the behind-the-wheel training requirement, however you will need to contact them directly to find out exactly what types of courses they offer.

Can I register for a New Hampshire behind-the-wheel training course prior to having my New Hampshire learners permit?
