StreetSmarts Drivers EducationFAQ's

Can you tell me if StreetSmarts Drivers Education is a licensed driver training school in Iowa?
Although StreetSmarts Drivers Education is listed on our list of driving schools in your area, we are unable to say with certainty as to whether they are currently licensed to teach driver training courses in Iowa.  We recommend either calling StreetSmarts Drivers Education directly or the Iowa DMV to find out whether or not StreetSmarts Drivers Education offers behind-the-wheel training courses that are state-approved.
Do you know if I can do my driver training with my mother or father instead of attending a behind-the-wheel training course like the ones offered by StreetSmarts Drivers Education?
Some states allow teen-agers to do their driver training with their parents instead of attending a professional driver training school.  We recommend that you contact the Iowa DMV or StreetSmarts Drivers Education directly to find out if Iowa allows parent-taught behind-the-wheel training.
What if I don't know how to drive a vehicle with a stick-shift? Does StreetSmarts Drivers Education have an automatic-shift vehicle they'll let 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 StreetSmarts Drivers Education to see if they can accommodate your request prior to your enrolling in their behind-the-wheel training course.
The area in which I live is mostly undeveloped--very few paved roads and mountains are all around. Will StreetSmarts Drivers Education be able to teach me how to drive safely on rugged terrain as well as in a city or town?
Considering that you live in a rural area, chances are excellent that a local driving school like StreetSmarts Drivers Education will want you to be able to drive safely on unpaved roads and other types of rugged terrain.  You may wish to contact StreetSmarts Drivers Education to find out exactly what their driver training course includes before signing up to take their training course.
After I turn 14, will I be eligible to get my learner's permit so I can begin to learn how to drive?
It depends on which state you live in, however most states unfortunately require you to be at least 15 (or sometimes 15 1/2) before you can be issued a instruction permit.  We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as StreetSmarts Drivers Education or the Iowa DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in Iowa.
Do I have to take both a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course in Clive Iowa to get my Iowa driver's license?
The laws vary depending on which state you live in, but most states do require that pre-licensed drivers register for a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course.  You may want to call a driving instruction company like StreetSmarts Drivers Education and find out if they offer either (or both) of these programs.

What type of driver ed do I need before Iowa will give me a driver's license?
