Gold Star Driving SchoolFAQ's
Gold Star Driving School is listed on your website as a driving school which offers driver training courses. How do I know if Gold Star Driving School is a certified school in Vermont?
While we include a list of driver training schools on our website for your convenience, we cannot guarantee that every single one of them is currently licensed by the Vermont DMV. We suggest you contact Gold Star Driving School directly or the Vermont DMV to find out if Gold Star Driving School is a fully-accredited driver training school.
I've been told that either of my parents can monitor my driver training, so I don't have to attend a Barre Vermont driving school like Gold Star Driving School to fulfill my behind-the-wheel training requirement. Do you know if that's true or not?
You will need to contact the Vermont DMV or a state-approved driving school like Gold Star Driving School to find out. Some states do allow parent-taught driving, but many states do not.
I have no clue how to drive a manual-shift vehicle. What happens if Gold Star 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....manual OR automatic! If you prefer to do your behind-the-wheel training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call Gold Star Driving School and let them know before you sign up to take their behind-the-wheel training course. That way you'll know for certain whether Gold Star Driving School can accommodate you before you pay them any money.
The area in which I live is mostly undeveloped--very few paved roads and mountains are all around. Will Gold Star Driving School be able to teach me how to drive safely on bumpy terrain as well as in a city or town?
Considering that you live in a remote area, chances are excellent that a local driving school like Gold Star Driving School will want you to be able to drive safely on unpaved roads and other types of bumpy terrain. You may wish to contact Gold Star Driving School to find out exactly what their behind-the-wheel training course includes before signing up to take their training course.
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 instruction permit. We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as Gold Star Driving School or the Vermont DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in Vermont.
Can I take Gold Star Driving School's behind-the-wheel training course before taking a Barre Vermont drivers education classroom course or online course?
It depends on what Vermont's laws say. However, you should know that most states will require teen-aged, first-time drivers to complete both a drivers education classroom course (which are approximately 30 hours in length, depending on Vermont's laws) or an approved online course, plus a state-approved behind-the-wheel training course. We recommend that you contact Gold Star Driving School directly to see if they offer either (or both) of these courses.
Vermont law says that I must successfully complete a hands-on driver training course in order to get licensed to drive in Barre Vermont. Is this something that Gold Star Driving School can help me with?

We suggest that you contact a local driver training company such as Gold Star Driving School and ask if they offer a Vermont-approved driver training course which would satisfy Vermont's driver's education requirements.
