Faulkner's Driving SchoolFAQ's

Faulkner's Driving School's contact information is listed on your webpage. How can I find out if it is an approved driver training school in North Carolina?
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 North Carolina DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses.  We strongly suggest that you contact Faulkner's Driving School directly or check with the North Carolina DMV to find out for sure if Faulkner's Driving School is a licensed school.
Is it true that my mom or dad can be my driving instructor when I do my behind-the-wheel training instead of a professional driving school instructor like the ones they have at Faulkner's Driving School?
It depends on what your state's laws are.  You should contact the North Carolina DMV or a licensed driving school like Faulkner's Driving School to find out if North Carolina allows driver training with a parent.
I have no clue how to drive a manual-shift vehicle. What happens if Faulkner's Driving School makes me train on a manual-shift vehicle?
Considering the fact you are a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating ANY type of vehicle....stick OR automatic!  If you prefer to do your hands-on driver training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call Faulkner's Driving School and let them know before you enroll in their behind-the-wheel training course.  That way you'll know for certain whether Faulkner's Driving School can accommodate you before you pay them any money.
I live in a remote area, that has a lot of dirt roads and rugged terrain. Will Faulkner's Driving 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 Faulkner's Driving School will want you to be taught how to drive safely on the local area's terrain.
After I turn 14, will I be eligible to obtain my learner's permit so I can begin to learn how to drive?
It depends on which state you live in, however most states unfortunately require you to be at least 15 (or sometimes 15 1/2) before you can be issued a learner's permit.  We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as Faulkner's Driving School or the North Carolina DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in North Carolina.
