Is Rhode Island Driving School a licensed driving school in Rhode Island?
Just because a driving school appears on our directory of driver training institutions, we cannot guarantee that they are fully licensed to offer hands-on driving courses in Rhode Island.  We highly recommend that you contact Rhode Island Driving School directly or the Rhode Island DMV to find out for sure if Rhode Island Driving School offers hands-on driving courses that have been approved by the State of Rhode Island.
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 Rhode Island?
Each state has its own laws regarding driver training.  Some states will allow parentally-supervised driver 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 Rhode Island DMV to find out for sure.
I don't know how to drive using a stick-shift. Will Rhode Island Driving School have an automatic-shift car available that I can use for my driver training?

I live in a rural area, that has a lot of dirt roads and bumpy terrain. Will Rhode Island Driving School train me how to drive in BOTH city AND rural environments?

Do I have to complete a Coventry Rhode Island drivers education classroom course or online course before signing up to take one of Rhode Island Driving School's behind-the-wheel training courses?
