Meadows Driving SchoolFAQ's

How do I know if Meadows Driving School is certified by Massachusetts's DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses?
While we do include Meadows Driving School's contact information in our driving school directory, we cannot say with certainty as to whether Meadows Driving School is licensed by the State of Massachusetts.  We recommend that you either contact Meadows Driving School directly or possibly the Massachusetts DMV to find out if Meadows Driving School is a certified driver training 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 driver training school instructor like the ones they have at Meadows Driving School?
It depends on what your state's laws are.  You should contact the Massachusetts DMV or a licensed driving school like Meadows Driving School to find out if Massachusetts allows behind-the-wheel training with a parent.
What happens if I don't know how to operate a stick-shift vehicle? Will Meadows Driving School allow me to do my driver training with an automatic-shift car?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about driving any type of car--stick-shift or automatic-shift!  However, if you prefer to complete your driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Meadows Driving School and let them know before you enroll in their behind-the-wheel training course.  That way you will know for certain if they will accommodate you.
I live in a very rural area, where there are mountains and a lot of dirt roads. Do you know if Meadows Driving School teaches students how to drive in rural areas like where I live instead of just driving on smooth, paved roads in urban areas?
Since you live in a remote area, a local driving school such as Meadows Driving School will tailor your driver training to handle the conditions in your area.  
Can 14-year-olds obtain instruction permits to drive in Massachusetts?
Most states have set the minimum age for applying for an instruction permit at 15 or 15 1/2.  However, some states do allow 14-year-olds to get a learner's permit.  You may want to contact the Massachusetts DMV or a Massachusetts-approved driver training school like Meadows Driving School to find out what the minimum age to drive is in Massachusetts.
Do I have to take both a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course in East Longmeadow Massachusetts to get my Massachusetts driver's license?
