Silver State Driving AcademyFAQ's
How do I know if Silver State Driving Academy is licensed by Nevada's DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses?
While we do include Silver State Driving Academy's contact information in our driving school directory, we cannot say with certainty as to whether Silver State Driving Academy is certified by the State of Nevada. We recommend that you either contact Silver State Driving Academy directly or possibly the Nevada DMV to find out if Silver State Driving Academy is a licensed driver training school.
Could I just have my mother or father give me my behind-the-wheel training instead of paying money to enroll in a professional driver training course?
It depends on which state you live in. There are some states which allow you to complete your behind-the-wheel training with a parent or guardian instead of attending a professional driving school. However many states require that first-time drivers take a professionally-taught behind-the-wheel training course. We recommend that you ask your state's DMV office to find out if your parent or guardian can fill the role as your behind-the-wheel driving instructor.
Do you know if Silver State Driving Academy will let me complete my driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle? I don't know anything about using a stick-shift.
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know a whole lot about driving ANY type of vehicle, be it a manual OR an automatic! Nevertheless, if you have a preference, you probably should contact Silver State Driving Academy and see if they can accommodate you before registering for their behind-the-wheel training course.
What happens to those of us who live in a rural area? Will Silver State Driving Academy include instruction on how to drive on dirt roads, mountain roads, and other bumpy terrain?

Are 14-year-olds permitted to apply for a learner's permit in Nevada?
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 receive an instruction permit at either 15 or 15½. You will need to contact the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving instruction company like Silver State Driving Academy to find out what the minimum age for driving is in Nevada.
Do I have to take both a drivers education classroom course and a driver training course in Las Vegas Nevada to get my Nevada driver's license?

You may want to call a driving instruction company like Silver State Driving Academy and find out if they offer either (or both) of these programs.
