Nova Driving SchoolFAQ's

Nova Driving School's contact information is listed on your webpage. How can I know for sure if it is an approved behind the wheel training school in Illinois?
Even though we provide a list of driver training schools on our website, we have no way of knowing for sure as to whether or not a particular school is licensed by the Illinois DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses.  We strongly suggest that you contact Nova Driving School directly or check with the Illinois DMV to find out for sure if Nova Driving School is a licensed school.
Do I have to take a driver training course? Can't my parents just give me my behind-the-wheel training?
There are some states that do permit parents or guardians to provide their teen-aged kids' required behind-the-wheel training in order to obtain a driver's license.  However many states do not allow any type of substitution for taking a professionally-taught driver training course.  We suggest you contact your state's DMV to find out what the laws are in your state regarding hands-on driving instruction.
What happens if I don't know how to drive a manual-shift vehicle? Will Nova Driving School allow me to do my behind-the-wheel training with an automatic-shift car?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about driving any type of automobile--manual-shift or automatic-shift!  However, if you prefer to complete your driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Nova Driving School and inform them before you register for their behind-the-wheel training course.  That way you will know for certain if they will accommodate you.
What happens to those of us who live in a remote area? Will Nova Driving School include instruction on how to drive on dirt roads, mountain roads, and other rugged?
If you live in a rural location, there is a high probability that a local driver training school like Nova Driving School will either want--or even be required--to tailor their instruction towards driving safely in your particular area.
Can I apply for my Illinois 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 Illinois Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving instruction school like Nova Driving School to learn more about the minimum age requirement in Illinois.
Can I take Nova Driving School's behind-the-wheel training course before taking a Chicago Illinois defensive driving classroom course or online course?
It depends on what Illinois's laws prescribe.  However, you should know that most states will require teen-aged, first-time drivers to complete both a defensive driving classroom course (which are approximately 30 hours in length, depending on Illinois's laws) or an approved online course, plus a state-approved driver training course.  We recommend that you contact Nova Driving School directly to see if they offer either (or both) of these courses.
Illinois's DMV has told me that I need to take a driver training course. Do you know if Nova Driving School offers this course or not?
Nova Driving School does offer the behind-the-wheel training course that Illinois requires all new teen-aged drivers to take.  For more information about the courses Nova Driving School offers, we recommend that you contact Nova Driving School directly.
What are the requirements in Chicago Illinois for obtaining a drivers license?
It depends on your state's laws, however in many states, teen-agers must complete both a drivers education classroom course and a driver training course.  Nova Driving School may offer an approved behind-the-wheel training course which you could take.  Please contact Nova Driving School for information regarding their available classes and how to go about registering for them.
Do I have to take a Chicago Illinois behind-the-wheel training course in order to get a driver's license?
Yes.  All drivers in Illinois must successfully complete an approved behind-the-wheel training course in order to receive a driver's license.  Please contact Nova Driving School for information on the types of driver training courses they offer in Chicago Illinois.
Do I have to obtain my instruction permit in Illinois before I am permitted to sign up to take a behind-the-wheel training course like the one Nova Driving School gives its students?
Laws vary from state to state, however most states do require that you obtain an learner's permit before you can register for a driver training course like the one that Nova Driving School gives its students.
