Valleywide Driving SchoolFAQ's
Are all the driving schools listed on your website fully-certified by the California DMV to offer driver training courses in California?
The driving school directory on our website is for your convenience only, and we cannot absolutely guarantee that every driving school listed is currently licensed to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in California.

Do you know if I can do my driver training with my mother or father instead of attending a driving school like Valleywide Driving School?
Some states allow teen-agers to complete their driver training with their parents instead of attending a professional driver training school. We recommend that you contact the California DMV or Valleywide Driving School directly to find out if California allows parent-taught driver training.
Do you know if Valleywide 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 manual OR an automatic! Nevertheless, if you have a preference, you probably should contact Valleywide Driving School and see if they can accommodate you before registering for their driver training course.
Since I live way out in the country where driving on dirt roads and rugged terrain is the norm, will Valleywide Driving School be able to teach me how to drive in a non-urban environment? Or do they only prepare you for city-driving?
Since you live in the country, odds are that any local driving school in your area such as Valleywide Driving School will want you to be able to drive safely on dirt roads and bumpy terrain. We recommend that you contact Valleywide Driving School directly to find out exactly what they offer.
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 Valleywide Driving School or the California DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in California.
Am I required to take a Granada Hills California classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a driver training course through Valleywide Driving School?
