Upstate Driving SchoolFAQ's

Upstate 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 South Carolina?
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 South Carolina DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses.  We strongly suggest that you contact Upstate Driving School directly or check with the South Carolina DMV to find out for sure if Upstate Driving School is a licensed school.
Could I just have my mother or father teach me how to drive instead of paying money to take a professional behind-the-wheel training course?
It depends on which state you live in.  There are some states which allow you to complete your hands-on driver training with a parent or guardian instead of enrolling in a professional driving school.  However many states require that new 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 Upstate Driving School will let me take my driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle? I don't know anything about using a manual-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 stick OR an automatic!  Nevertheless, if you have a preference, you probably should contact Upstate Driving School and see if they can accommodate you before registering for their behind-the-wheel training course.
I live in a very rural area, where there are mountains and a lot of dirt roads. Do you know if Upstate Driving School offers training for driving in rural areas like where I live instead of just driving on smooth, paved roads in city areas?
Since you live in a remote area, a local driving school such as Upstate Driving School will tailor your driver training to handle the conditions in your area.  
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 learner's permit.  We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as Upstate Driving School or the South Carolina DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in South Carolina.
Do I have to complete a Anderson South Carolina drivers education classroom course or online course before registering for one of Upstate Driving School's behind-the-wheel training courses?
Each state has its own laws, but most states will require first-time drivers to take both a behind-the-wheel training course plus either a defensive driving classroom course (which are about 30 hours in length) or an approved online drivers education course.  You may want to ask Upstate Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
Does Upstate Driving School provide a behind-the-wheel training course like the one that is required by the State of South Carolina? I need to complete one in order to obtain my driver license.
Upstate Driving School offers hands-on driver training courses which are approved by the South Carolina DMV.  You may want to contact Upstate Driving School directly for more information about their courses and how to go about registering for one.
How do I obtain a drivers license in Anderson South Carolina?
In most states, pre-licensed teens are required to complete both a classroom drivers education course and a driver training course.  Upstate Driving School may be able to help you fulfill the behind-the-wheel training portion in South Carolina. 
Is there a law in South Carolina that says I have to take driver training in order to get my driver's license?
Yes.  State law in South Carolina requires that all teen-agers take an approved behind-the-wheel training course before receiving a South Carolina driver's license.
Can I enroll in a South Carolina-certified behind-the-wheel training course even if I don't have my South Carolina learners permit yet?
Most likely, no.  Most states have laws that mandate a pre-licensed driver to have obtained a South Carolina learners permit before registering in a South Carolina behind-the-wheel training course.  It would be best for you to contact a driving school such as Upstate Driving School and ask for more information.
