Excel Driving School (Plainfield)FAQ's

Can you tell me if Excel Driving School (Plainfield) is a licensed driver training school in Illinois?
Although Excel Driving School (Plainfield) is listed on our list of driving schools in your area, we are unable to say with certainty as to whether they are currently certified to teach driver training courses in Illinois.  We recommend either calling Excel Driving School (Plainfield) directly or the Illinois DMV to find out whether or not Excel Driving School (Plainfield) offers behind-the-wheel training courses that are state-approved.
Somebody told me that I can skip out of attending a driver training school if my parents give me behind-the-wheel training instead. Is that permissible in Illinois?
Each state has its own rules regarding behind-the-wheel training.  Some states will allow parentally-supervised behind-the-wheel training as a substitute for attending a behind-the-wheel training course which is taught by a professional driving instructor.  However, not all states allow this.  You should contact the Illinois DMV to find out for sure.
I can't drive a stick-shift. Will Excel Driving School (Plainfield) allow me to complete my driver training on an automatic-shift vehicle?
We recommend that you contact Excel Driving School (Plainfield) and ask them if you can do your behind-the-wheel training using a vehicle that has an automatic shift before signing up to take their behind-the-wheel training course.
What happens to those of us who live in a non-urban area? Will Excel Driving School (Plainfield) include instruction on how to drive on dirt roads, mountain roads, and other bumpy terrain?
If you live in a remote location, there is a high probability that a local driving school like Excel Driving School (Plainfield) will either want--or even be required--to tailor their instruction towards driving safely in your particular area.
Now that I'm 14, will Illinois allow me to get a learner's permit to drive?
Not likely.  Most states require residents to be at least 15 or 15 1/2 years old before applying for an instruction permit.  We recommend that your contact the Illinois DMV office or a Illinois-approved driver training institute such as Excel Driving School (Plainfield) to learn more about the minimum driving age requirement in Illinois.
