Helms Driving SchoolFAQ's

Helms Driving School is listed on your website as a driving school which offers driver training courses. How do I know if Helms Driving School is a certified school in North Carolina?
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 North Carolina DMV.  We suggest you contact Helms Driving School directly or the North Carolina DMV to find out if Helms Driving School is a fully-accredited driving school.
Do you know if I can complete my driver training with my mother or father instead of attending a driving school like Helms 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 North Carolina DMV or Helms Driving School directly to find out if North Carolina allows parent-taught driver training.
What happens if I don't know how to drive a manual-shift vehicle? Will Helms Driving School allow me to do my behind-the-wheel training with an automatic-shift vehicle?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about driving any type of vehicle--stick-shift or automatic-shift!  However, if you prefer to complete your behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Helms Driving School and inform them before you register for their driver training course.  That way you will know for certain if they will accommodate you.
I live out in the middle of nowhere. There are rural and mountain roads all around. Will Helms Driving School teach me how to drive in BOTH rural AND city areas?

I'm turning 14 in a few months. Can I get a learner's permit to drive in North Carolina after my 14th birthday?
