Etowah Driving AcademyFAQ's

Etowah Driving Academy is listed on your website as a driving school which offers behind-the-wheel training courses. How do I know if Etowah Driving Academy is a licensed school in Alabama?
While we include a list of driving schools on our website for your convenience, we cannot guarantee that every single one of them is currently licensed by the Alabama DMV.  We suggest you contact Etowah Driving Academy directly or the Alabama DMV to find out if Etowah Driving Academy is a fully-accredited driver training school.
Do I have to take a behind-the-wheel training course? Can't my parents just give me my behind-the-wheel training?
There are some states that do permit parents or guardians to provide their teen-aged kids' required driver training in order to obtain a driver's license.  However many states do not allow any type of substitution for enrolling in a professionally-taught driver training course.  We suggest you contact your state's DMV to find out what the laws are in your state regarding behind-the-wheel training.
Do I need to tell Etowah Driving Academy that I need to train with an automatic-shift vehicle? I don't know how to drive a manual-shift automobile.
Most new drivers don't know how to operate either a stick-shift OR and automatic-shift automobile!  We recommend that you ask Etowah Driving Academy if you can complete your behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift automobile before you sign up to take their driver training course.
Since I live way out in a rural area where driving on unpaved roads and rugged terrain is the norm, will Etowah Driving Academy 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 Etowah Driving Academy will want you to be able to drive safely on dirt roads and rugged terrain.  We recommend that you contact Etowah Driving Academy directly to find out exactly what they offer.
If I'm 14, can I get an instruction permit to drive in Alabama?
Possibly.  However, you should be aware that most states require you to be at least 15½ years old before you can get an instruction permit.  We recommend that you contact the Alabama Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving school such as Etowah Driving Academy to find out exactly what the minimum age requirement is in Alabama.
Do I have to complete a Gadsden Alabama drivers education classroom course or online course before signing up to take one of Etowah Driving Academy's driver training courses?
Each state has its own laws, but most states will require first-time drivers to take both a driver training course plus either a drivers education classroom course (which are about 30 hours in length) or an approved online drivers education course.  You may want to ask Etowah Driving Academy if they offer one or both programs.
