Northern Industrial TrainingFAQ's
Since Northern Industrial Training is listed on your website, does this mean they are approved by the Alaska DMV to offer driver training courses?
The list of driving schools on our webpage is provided as a convenience to our customers only. We CANNOT guarantee that every single school listed is fully-certified by the Alaska DMV. You may want to call Northern Industrial Training directly to find out if they offer a state-certified behind-the-wheel training course.
Will the Alaska DMV allow my parents to supervise my driving practice instead of requiring me to take a behind-the-wheel training course at a state-approved driving school?
Possibly. Some states will allow your parents to supervise your driving practice as a substitute to taking a behind-the-wheel driving course with a professional driving instructor. You will need to contact the Alaska DMV to find out if your behind-the-wheel driving may be done by your parents in Alaska.
I have no clue how to drive a stick-shift vehicle. What happens if Northern Industrial Training makes me train on a stick-shift vehicle?
Considering the fact you are a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating ANY type of vehicle....stick OR automatic! If you prefer to do your hands-on driver training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call Northern Industrial Training and let them know before you enroll in their driver training course. That way you'll know for sure whether Northern Industrial Training can accommodate you before you pay them any money.
I don't live anywhere near a city. There are dirt roads and bumpy terrain all around my house. How do I know if Northern Industrial Training will train me on how to drive in a remote area like where I live and not just teach me how to drive in a town-or city-type environment?
Since Northern Industrial Training is a local driver training company in your area, it's a safe bet that Northern Industrial Training will be motivated (or perhaps required) to teach its local customers how to drive on rugged terrain. If you want to make certain, however, you may want to call Northern Industrial Training to find out exactly what's included in their driver training course before you register with them.
Are 14-year-olds eligible to apply for a instruction permit in Alaska?
Although a few states allow teen-agers to begin practicing how to drive at 14, most states have set the youngest age for which to hold an instruction permit at either 15 or 15½. You will need to contact the Alaska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving instruction company like Northern Industrial Training to find out what the minimum age for driving is in Alaska.
Do I have to complete a Fairbanks Alaska drivers education classroom course or online course before enrolling in one of Northern Industrial Training's behind-the-wheel 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 defensive driving classroom course (which are about 30 hours in length) or an approved online defensive driving course. You may want to ask Northern Industrial Training if they offer one or both programs.
Alaska's DMV has told me that I need to take a driver training course. Do you know if Northern Industrial Training offers this course or not?
Northern Industrial Training does offer the behind-the-wheel training course that Alaska requires all new teen-aged drivers to take. For more information about the courses Northern Industrial Training offers, we recommend that you contact Northern Industrial Training directly.
I live in Fairbanks Alaska. What requirements must I meet to be able to get my first Alaska driver's license?
It depends on the particular laws of Alaska, but most states require teen-aged first-time license applicants to successfully complete both a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course. Northern Industrial Training may offer courses which would fulfill the behind-the-wheel training requirement, however you will need to contact them directly to find out exactly what types of courses they offer.
Am I required to take a Fairbanks Alaska driver training course?
All drivers in Alaska must take a driver training course. You should contact Northern Industrial Training to learn more about the courses they offer.
Can I enroll in a Alaska-approved behind-the-wheel training course even if I don't have my Alaska instruction permit yet?
Most likely, no. Most states have laws that mandate a pre-licensed driver to have obtained a Alaska learners permit before registering in a Alaska behind-the-wheel training course. It would be best for you to contact a driving school such as Northern Industrial Training and ask for more information.
