Northwest Driving SchoolFAQ's

Northwest Driving School is listed on your website as a driving school which offers driver training courses. How do I know if Northwest Driving School is a licensed school in Nevada?
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 Nevada DMV.  We suggest you contact Northwest Driving School directly or the Nevada DMV to find out if Northwest Driving School is a fully-accredited driver training 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 Nevada?
Each state has its own laws regarding behind-the-wheel training.  Some states will allow parentally-supervised behind-the-wheel training as a substitute for enrolling in a behind-the-wheel training course which is taught by a professional driving instructor.  However, not all states allow this.  You should contact the Nevada DMV to find out for sure.
I don't know how to drive using a manual-shift. Will Northwest Driving School have an automatic-shift car available that I can use for my driver training?
Since you're enrolling in a Las Vegas Nevada driver training class, chances are good that you don't know how to drive either a stick-shift OR an automatic!  However, you should let Northwest Driving School know what your preference is before enrolling in their behind-the-wheel class.  That way you'll know for sure they will accommodate you.
I live in a very remote area, where there are mountains and a lot of unpaved roads. Do you know if Northwest Driving School offers training for driving in rural areas like where I live instead of just driving on smooth, paved roads in urban areas?
Since you live in a rural area, a local driving school such as Northwest Driving School will tailor your driver training to handle the conditions in your area.  
Now that I'm 14, will Nevada allow me to get a learner's permit to drive?
Not likely.  Most states require residents to be at least 15 or 15 1/2 years old before applying for an instruction permit.  We recommend that your contact the Nevada DMV office or a Nevada-approved driving school such as Northwest Driving School to learn more about the minimum driving age requirement in Nevada.
Do I have to complete a Las Vegas Nevada drivers education classroom course or online course before signing up to take one of Northwest Driving School's behind-the-wheel training courses?
Each state has its own rules, but most states will require first-time drivers to take both a driver 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 Northwest Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
I am looking to sign up to take a Las Vegas Nevada defensive driving course. Can Northwest Driving School assist me with this?
Yes.  defensive driving courses are available in Las Vegas Nevada through Northwest Driving School.  Please contact Northwest Driving School directly with questions regarding their schedule of classes and registration information.
I live in Las Vegas Nevada. What are the requirements for me to be able to get my first Nevada driver's license?
It depends on the particular laws of Nevada, but most states require teen-aged first-time license applicants to successfully complete both a safe driving classroom course and a driver training course.  Northwest Driving School may offer courses which would meet the behind-the-wheel training requirement, however you will need to contact them directly to find out exactly what types of courses they offer.
I live in Las Vegas Nevada and would like to apply for my first driver's license. Do I need to take a driver training course before I can be licensed?

Will Nevada allow me to enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course before I actually get my learner's permit?
