Once you are ready to take your road test, we can take you to the DMV*, where you will use your instructor's car during the road test. The instructor will pick you up from home or work, you will drive about 45 min on your way to the DMV (the instructor will correct anything you might be doing wrong). After parking at DMV, the instructor will assist you during the check-in process. You will use the instructor's car to take your road test (the instructor will wait for you at the DMV). After the test is over the instructor will drive you home/work.
Important: We are not a rental car company. This service is offered to previous students, which means that you will need instructor approval before purchasing. During that brush up class the instructor will prepare you for the 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 defensive driver.
Pick up time is 1 hour prior to drive test, used to practice and to drive to DMV. Keep in mind that you are required to check-in at DMV's window 15 min before appointment time.
Note: This service is offered to the following DMV locations: San Ysidro, Chula Vista, Normal Street, Clairemont, Poway, and El Cajon. Please be aware that San Marcos and Oceanside are not included. Expect long delays. Your appointment time is basically your check-in time. Usually there is a long wait in the car, after checking-in. On top of this wait, you'll need to consider the time required for the road test itself (usually 15 min), the time required to issue your license when you return from your test, and the time required to take you home/work. Normally the whole process last between two and one-half and three hours. Scheduling an early appointment tends to minimize the waiting time. If you schedule an afternoon appointment, expect LONG DELAYS (the line grows bigger as the day progresses).
IMPORTANT NOTICE: After three hours from the pick up time, an additional $25 waiting fee will be added per every additional hour/fraction.
*This service is for DMV locations in San Diego. Other areas such as San Marcos and Oceanside are not included.
