If you are over 18 years of age, you are not required to take driving lessons.
Nevertheless, if you have never driven or you are adapting to drive in California because you learned to drive in a foreign country, we are here to help.
After a brief inquiry, to evaluate your particular situation, the assigned instructor will set a lesson plan based on your individual needs. All our instructors are licensed by the DMV, and they are professional, knowledgeable and patient.
Whatever your past experience may be, we are here to help you with all your driving needs.
We can teach you from scratch; or help you adapt to the local roads; or help you overcome some insecurity (like freeway driving or crossing the Coronado Bridge).
Once you are ready to take your road test, we also provide the service to take you to your local DMV, where you will use your instructor's car during the road test (Note: This service is offered to previous students, which means that you need to take at least one class in which your instructor will prepare you for the road test, and will give you an honest and candor opinion about your chances of passing it. Remember, we want you to pass the test, but most importantly, we want you to be a safe, knowledgeable, and confident driver).
We have male and female instructors, and some of them are bilingual (English/Spanish).
To take a behind-the-wheel lesson you need to have a valid Learner's Permit (in your possession), so your first step is to take the written test at your local DMV. Learn the rules by reading a California Driver Handbook (free at any DMV office or view it online in English or Spanish).
Once you have passed the written test and got a learner's permit, CALL US at (619) 275-3711 or pay online (choose the program that better reflects your needs: ADULT- TWO (2) hours Behind-the-Wheel lesson or ADULT- SIX (6) hours Behind-the-Wheel package (3 different days), or ADULT- SIX (6) hours Behind-the-Wheel Breakfast Special). After receiving your online payment our secretary will contact you the next working day to schedule your behind-the-wheel lessons.
