Is MDSP Precision Driving a certified driving school in Michigan?
Just because a driving school appears on our directory of driver training institutions, we cannot guarantee that they are fully licensed to offer hands-on driving courses in Michigan.

Could I just have my mother or father teach me how to drive instead of paying money to take a professional driver training course?
It depends on which state you live in. There are some states which allow you to do your hands-on driver training with a parent or guardian instead of enrolling in a professional driving school. However many states require that first-time drivers take a professionally-taught behind-the-wheel training course. We recommend that you check with your state's DMV office to find out if your parent or guardian can fill the role as your behind-the-wheel driving instructor.

If I'm 14, can I get an instruction permit to drive in Michigan?
