Mi Terra Driving SchoolFAQ's
How do I know if Mi Terra Driving School is licensed by New Mexico's DMV to offer driver training courses?
While we do include Mi Terra Driving School's contact information in our driving school directory, we cannot say with certainty as to whether Mi Terra Driving School is certified by the State of New Mexico. We recommend that you either contact Mi Terra Driving School directly or possibly the New Mexico DMV to find out if Mi Terra Driving School is a licensed driver training school.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving instructor in New Mexico, so taking a Las Cruces driving school course like the one Mi Terra Driving School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the New Mexico DMV or a licensed driving school like Mi Terra Driving School and ask them. While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
I don't know how to drive using a stick-shift. Will Mi Terra Driving School have an automatic-shift car available that I can use for my behind-the-wheel training?
Since you're enrolling in a Las Cruces New Mexico behind-the-wheel training class, chances are good that you don't know how to drive either a stick-shift OR an automatic! However, you should let Mi Terra Driving School know what your preference is before signing up to take their behind-the-wheel class. That way you'll know for sure they will accommodate you.
Since I live way out in a remote location where driving on dirt roads and bumpy terrain is the norm, will Mi Terra Driving School be able to teach me how to drive in a rural environment? Or do they only prepare you for city-driving?
Since you live in a remote location, odds are that any local driving school in your area such as Mi Terra Driving School will want you to be able to drive safely on dirt roads and bumpy terrain. We recommend that you contact Mi Terra Driving School directly to find out exactly what they offer.
I just turned 14 years old. Am I eligible to receive my instruction permit in New Mexico?
Probably not. The minimum age requirement for holding an instruction permit in most states is 15 1/2. You should contact the New Mexico Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driving school such as Mi Terra Driving School to find out more information about the minimum age requirement in New Mexico.
Am I required to take a Las Cruces New Mexico classroom or online drivers education course before I can sign up to take a driver training course through Mi Terra Driving School?
This requirement varies by state but most states do require new teen-aged drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based driver education course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a behind-the-wheel training course. You should ask Mi Terra Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
New Mexico's DMV has told me that I need to take a driver training course. Do you know if Mi Terra Driving School offers this course or not?
Mi Terra Driving School does offer the driver training course that New Mexico requires all new teen-aged drivers to take. For more information about the courses Mi Terra Driving School offers, we recommend that you contact Mi Terra Driving School directly.
Do I have to take drivers education to get a New Mexico driver's license?
Drivers education requirements vary depending on which state you live in, but you should be aware that most states require new, teen-aged drivers to sign up to take
a driver training course in addition to a safe driving classroom or online course. You may wish to contact the New Mexico DMV to find out exactly what requirements you will need to meet in order to obtain your first driver's license.
Do I have to take a Las Cruces New Mexico behind-the-wheel training course in order to get a driver's license?
Yes. All drivers in New Mexico must successfully complete an approved behind-the-wheel training course in order to receive a driver's license. Please contact Mi Terra Driving School for information on the types of behind-the-wheel training courses they offer in Las Cruces New Mexico.
Can I register for a New Mexico-licensed behind-the-wheel training course even if I don't have my New Mexico learners permit yet?
Most likely, no. Most states have laws that mandate a pre-licensed driver to have obtained a New Mexico learners permit before registering in a New Mexico behind-the-wheel training course. It would be best for you to contact a driving school such as Mi Terra Driving School and ask for more information.
