Preferred Driving SchoolFAQ's
Preferred Driving School's address and phone number is listed on your webpage. How can I find out if it is a licensed behind the wheel training school in Kentucky?
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 Kentucky DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses. We strongly suggest that you contact Preferred Driving School directly or check with the Kentucky DMV to find out for sure if Preferred Driving School is a licensed school.
I've been told that either of my parents can monitor my driver training, so I don't have to attend a Florence Kentucky driving school like Preferred Driving School to fulfill my driver training requirement. Do you know if that's true or not?
You will need to contact the Kentucky DMV or a state-approved driving school like Preferred Driving School to find out. Some states do allow parent-taught driving, but many states do not.
What if I don't know how to drive a vehicle with a stick-shift? Does Preferred Driving School have an automatic-shift vehicle they'll allow me train with?
Since you're just learning how to drive, you probably don't know how to operate either a stick-shift or an automatic-shift vehicle! However, if you have a preference as to a manual or an automatic, you probably should call Preferred Driving School to see if they can accommodate your request prior to your signing up to take their behind-the-wheel training course.
I live in a remote area, that has a lot of dirt roads and rugged terrain. Will Preferred Driving School teach me how to drive in BOTH city AND rural environments?

If I'm 14, can I get an instruction permit to drive in Kentucky?
