National Traffic Safety InstituteFAQ's
Is National Traffic Safety Institute an approved driving school in Arizona?
Just because a driving school appears on our directory of driver training institutions, we cannot guarantee that they are fully licensed to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in Arizona. We highly recommend that you contact National Traffic Safety Institute directly or the Arizona DMV to find out for sure if National Traffic Safety Institute offers driver training courses that have been approved by the State of Arizona.
Could I just have my mother or father teach me how to drive instead of paying money to attend a professional behind-the-wheel training course?
It depends on which state you live in. There are some states which permit you to do your hands-on driver training with a parent or guardian instead of attending a professional driving school. However many states require that new drivers take a professionally-taught driver 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.
What if I don't know how to operate a stick-shift automobile? Does National Traffic Safety Institute have automatic-shift vehicles that I can drive when I do my behind-the-wheel training?
If you're taking a Tucson Arizona driver 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 National Traffic Safety Institute that prior to enrolling in the course in order to make sure they can accommodate you.
I don't live anywhere near a city. There are dirt roads and bumpy terrain all around my house. How do I know if National Traffic Safety Institute will train me on how to drive in a rural area like where I live and not just teach me how to drive in a town-or city-type environment?
Since National Traffic Safety Institute is a local driver training company in your area, it's a safe bet that National Traffic Safety Institute will be motivated (or perhaps required) to teach its local customers how to drive on bumpy terrain. If you want to make certain, however, you may want to call National Traffic Safety Institute to find out exactly what's included in their behind-the-wheel training course before you sign up with them.
Can I apply for my Arizona instruction permit once I turn 14?
Most likely, no. Most states have set the minimum age to obtain a learner's permit at 15 or 15½. You may want to contact the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driving instruction school like National Traffic Safety Institute to learn more about the minimum age requirement in Arizona.
Do I have to complete a Tucson Arizona drivers education classroom course or online course before registering for one of National Traffic Safety Institute's driver training courses?
Each state has its own rules, but most states will require first-time drivers to take both a behind-the-wheel training course plus either a drivers education classroom course (which are about 30 hours in length) or an approved online defensive driving course. You may want to ask National Traffic Safety Institute if they offer one or both programs.
Does National Traffic Safety Institute provide a driver training course like the one that is required by the State of Arizona? I need to register for one in order to obtain my driver license.
National Traffic Safety Institute offers driver training courses which are approved by the Arizona DMV. You may want to contact National Traffic Safety Institute directly for more information about their courses and how to go about signing up for one.
Do I have to take drivers education to get a Arizona 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 both a behind-the-wheel training course in addition to a drivers education classroom or online course. You may wish to contact the Arizona DMV to find out exactly what requirements you will need to meet in order to obtain your first driver's license.
Is there a law in Arizona that requires me to take behind-the-wheel training in order to get my driver's license?
Yes. State law in Arizona mandates that all teen-agers take an approved behind-the-wheel training course before receiving a Arizona driver's license.
Can I enroll in a Arizona-certified driver training course even if I don't have my Arizona learners permit yet?
Most likely, no. Most states have laws that mandate a pre-licensed driver to have obtained a Arizona learners permit before registering in a Arizona behind-the-wheel training course. It would be best for you to contact a driving school such as National Traffic Safety Institute and ask for more information.
