Teen Driving New MexicoFAQ's
Teen Driving New Mexico's contact information is listed on your webpage. How can I know for sure if it is a licensed driver training school in New Mexico?
Even though we provide a list of behind-the-wheel training schools on our website, we have no way of knowing for sure as to whether or not a particular school is certified by the New Mexico DMV to offer driver training courses. We strongly suggest that you contact Teen Driving New Mexico directly or check with the New Mexico DMV to find out for sure if Teen Driving New Mexico is a licensed school.
Do I have to take a behind-the-wheel training course? Can't my parents just give me my behind-the-wheel training?
There are some states that do allow parents or guardians to provide their teen-aged kids' required driver training in order to obtain a driver's license. However many states do not allow any type of substitution for attending a professionally-taught behind-the-wheel training course. We suggest you contact your state's DMV to find out what the laws are in your state regarding behind-the-wheel training.
I don't know how to drive using a stick-shift. Will Teen Driving New Mexico have an automatic-shift car available that I can use for my driver training?

However, you should let Teen Driving New Mexico know what your preference is before signing up to take their behind-the-wheel class. That way you'll know for sure they will accommodate you.
The area in which I live is mostly undeveloped--very few paved roads and mountains are all around. Will Teen Driving New Mexico be able to teach me how to drive safely on rugged terrain as well as in a city or town?

You may wish to contact Teen Driving New Mexico to find out exactly what their driver training course includes before registering for their training course.
Now that I'm 14, will New Mexico allow me to get a learner's permit to drive?
