Mi Safe DrivingFAQ's
Mi Safe Driving is listed on your website as a driving school which offers driver training courses. How do I know if Mi Safe Driving is a licensed school in Michigan?
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 Michigan DMV. We suggest you contact Mi Safe Driving directly or the Michigan DMV to find out if Mi Safe Driving is a fully-accredited driving school.
Somebody told me that I can skip out of attending a driver training school if my parents give me behind-the-wheel training instead. Is that permissible in Michigan?
Each state has its own laws regarding driver training. Some states will allow parentally-supervised behind-the-wheel training as a substitute for taking a behind-the-wheel training course which is taught by a professional driving instructor. However, not all states allow this. You should contact the Michigan DMV to find out for sure.
What if I don't know how to operate a stick-shift automobile? Does Mi Safe Driving have automatic-shift vehicles that I can drive when I do my driver training?
If you're taking a Ann Arbor Michigan behind-the-wheel training class, chances are you don't know how to drive ANY vehicle yet-- stick or automatic. However, if you prefer an automatic vehicle then you should tell Mi Safe Driving that prior to signing up to take the course in order to make sure they can accommodate you.
I live out in the middle of nowhere. There are rural and mountain roads everywhere. Will Mi Safe Driving train me how to drive in BOTH rural AND city areas?
If you live in a rural or mountain town, chances are that a local driving instruction institute like Mi Safe Driving will include behind-the-wheel driver training specifically tailored to that terrain.
I'm turning 14 in a few months. Can I get a learner's permit to drive in Michigan after my 14th birthday?
Most likely, no. Most states (though not all) have laws which require that you be at least 15 or 15 1/2 before to be eligible to apply for a learner's permit. Nevertheless, you may wish to contact the Michigan DMV office or a Michigan-certified driving school such as Mi Safe Driving to find out for certain what the minimum driving age is in your local area.
Can I take Mi Safe Driving's behind-the-wheel training course before taking a Ann Arbor Michigan defensive driving classroom course or online course?
It depends on what Michigan's laws prescribe. 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 Michigan's laws) or an approved online course, plus a state-approved driver training course. We recommend that you contact Mi Safe Driving directly to see if they offer either (or both) of these courses.
Does Mi Safe Driving provide a hands-on driver training course like the one that is required by the State of Michigan? I need to enroll in one in order to obtain my driver license.
