The course is 30 hours long, and students are required to attend every day. Students may miss one class session for any reason but MUST attend the make-up day.

Behind the Wheel training will begin with the oldest students being scheduled first. Please do not expect to be given a driving schedule when the classroom portion is completed. There are many factors that determine when students are scheduled. Every effort is made to get students through this hands-on training as soon as possible.
