Essex Driving SchoolFAQ's

Can you tell me if Essex Driving School is a certified driving school in Tennessee?
Although Essex Driving School is listed on our list of driving schools in your area, we are unable to say with certainty as to whether they are currently approved to teach hands-on driving courses in Tennessee.  We recommend either calling Essex Driving School directly or the Tennessee DMV to find out whether or not Essex Driving School offers driver training courses that are state-approved.
Do you know if I can do my driver training with my mother or father instead of attending a driving school like Essex Driving School?
Some states allow teen-agers to complete their behind-the-wheel training with their parents instead of attending a professional driving school.  We recommend that you contact the Tennessee DMV or Essex Driving School directly to find out if Tennessee allows parent-taught driver training.
I don't know how to drive using a manual-shift. Will Essex Driving School have an automatic-shift car available that I can use for my driver training?
Since you're enrolling in a Signal Mountain Tennessee behind-the-wheel training class, chances are good that you don't know how to drive either a manual-shift OR an automatic!  However, you should let Essex Driving School know what your preference is before enrolling in their behind-the-wheel class.  That way you'll know for sure they will accommodate you.
Since I live way out in the country where driving on dirt roads and bumpy terrain is the norm, will Essex Driving School be able to teach me how to drive in a rural environment? Or do they only prepare you for city-driving?
Since you live in a rural area, odds are that any local driving school in your area such as Essex Driving School will want you to be able to drive safely on dirt roads and bumpy terrain.  We recommend that you contact Essex Driving School directly to find out exactly what they offer.
I just turned 14 years old. Can I receive my instruction permit in Tennessee?
Probably not.  The minimum age requirement for holding an instruction permit in most states is 15 1/2.  You should contact the Tennessee Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driving school such as Essex Driving School to find out more information about the minimum age requirement in Tennessee. 
Am I required to take a Signal Mountain Tennessee classroom or online drivers education course before I can register for a behind-the-wheel training course through Essex Driving School?
This requirement varies by state but most states do mandate pre-licensed drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based driver education course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a behind-the-wheel training course.  You should ask Essex Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
If I need to sign up to take a Signal Mountain Tennessee driving school, can Essex Driving School help?
Yes.  Essex Driving School offers behind-the-wheel training courses in Signal Mountain Tennessee.  For more information about the type of behind-the-wheel training Essex Driving School offers and the training schedule, you should contact them directly.
What do I need to do to get a Tennessee drivers license in Signal Mountain Tennessee?
Most states require that teen-agers who are applying for their first driver's license complete both a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course.  Essex Driving School may be able to help you meet the driver training portion in Tennessee.  Please contact Essex Driving School for more information. 

Is there a law in Tennessee that says I have to take driver training in order to get my driver's license?
Yes.  State law in Tennessee requires that all teen-agers successfully complete an approved driver training course before receiving a Tennessee driver's license.
Can I enroll in a Tennessee-certified behind-the-wheel training course even if I don't have my Tennessee instruction permit yet?
Most likely, no.  Most states have laws that mandate a pre-licensed driver to have obtained a Tennessee instruction permit before registering in a Tennessee behind-the-wheel training course.  It would be best for you to contact a driving school such as Essex Driving School and ask for more information.
