Drive-Rite Driving SchoolFAQ's

Since Drive-Rite Driving School appears on your website, does this mean they've been approved by the Tennessee DMV to offer driver training courses?
The list of driving schools on our webpage is provided as a convenience to our customers only.  We CANNOT guarantee that every single school listed is fully-approved by the Tennessee DMV.  You may want to call Drive-Rite Driving School directly to find out if they offer a state-certified behind-the-wheel training course.
Will the Tennessee 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 behind-the-wheel driving course with a professional driving instructor.  You will need to contact the Tennessee DMV to find out if your behind-the-wheel driving may be done by your parents in Tennessee.
What if I don't know how to drive a manual-shift automobile? Does Drive-Rite Driving School have automatic-shift vehicles that I can drive when I do my behind-the-wheel training?
If you're taking a Knoxville Tennessee driver training class, chances are you don't know how to drive ANY vehicle yet-- stick or automatic.  However, if you prefer an automatic vehicle then you should tell Drive-Rite Driving School that prior to registering for the course in order to make sure they can accommodate you. 
I live out in the middle of nowhere. There are rural and mountain roads everywhere. Will Drive-Rite Driving School train me how to drive in BOTH rural AND city areas?
If you live in a rural or mountain area, chances are that a local driving instruction institute like Drive-Rite Driving School will include driving lessons specifically tailored to that terrain. 
I'm turning 14 in a few months. Can I get a learner's permit to drive in Tennessee after my 14th birthday?
Most likely, no.  Most states (though not all) have laws which require that you be at least 15 or 15 1/2 before to be eligible to apply for an instruction permit.  Nevertheless, you may wish to contact the Tennessee DMV office or a Tennessee-certified driving school such as Drive-Rite Driving School to find out for certain what the minimum driving age is in your local area.
Will I be required to enroll in both a drivers education classroom or online course and a behind-the-wheel training course in Knoxville Tennessee?
It depends on which state you live in, but many states now mandate new teen-aged drivers to sign up for both a drivers education course as well as a behind-the-wheel training course.
Tennessee's DMV has told me that I need to take a driver training course. Do you know if Drive-Rite Driving School offers this course or not?
Drive-Rite Driving School does offer the behind-the-wheel training course that Tennessee requires all new teen-aged drivers to take.  For more information about the courses Drive-Rite Driving School offers, we recommend that you contact Drive-Rite Driving School directly.
Exactly what type of driver training do I need in Knoxville Tennessee before I can get my Tennessee driver's license?
The prerequisites for getting a driver's licenses vary from state to state, however most states now require teen-agers who are looking to get their first driver's license to enroll in a drivers education classroom course as well as a behind-the-wheel training course.  We suggest that you contact a local driver training company such as Drive-Rite Driving School and ask if they offer a Tennessee-approved  behind-the-wheel training course which would satisfy Tennessee's driver's education requirements.
Is a behind-the-wheel training course required in Knoxville Tennessee for me to get a drivers license?
The law in Tennessee requires that all drivers complete a driver training course as part of their driver education.  You should contact Drive-Rite Driving School directly to find out about the types of courses they offer.
Is it okay for me to sign up to take a driver training class in Tennessee before I receive my Tennessee instruction permit to drive?
Probably not.  Most states require first-time drivers to have their learners permit before they are allowed to register for a driver training program.  You should contact a driving school like Drive-Rite Driving School and request more information.
