FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSWe’re Here to Help
We know you must have a lot of questions – this is your child’s safety we’re talking about. If your question isn’t already answered, our team stands ready to help you with any additional information regarding our services.
Do I need to have a car to take the course?
For basic training, we supply our own Ford vehicles for instruction. For the defensive driving course, we require you bring your own automobile to get you more acquainted with it for future situations.
Can anyone take the course?
How are the lessons scheduled?
Each lesson is scheduled within a six-month period. Students are required to perform 15 to 20 hours of practice between their first 2 lessons. The third lesson is scheduled one month prior to their driving test.
My daughter completed an online course. I received a pink certificate of completion of driver’s education. What do she need prior to going to the DMV to take the written test?
The DMV requires the following: Completion of driver’s education certificate obtained from the driving school that your teen completed either online or in-classroom, original birth certificate or passport, application for a California driver’s license form DL44, and 2 forms of parents’ proof of residency (i.e. driver’s license, phone bill, etc.). Be sure to make a DMV appointment online for a California driver’s license and contact us to schedule a first driving lesson in your area. NOTE: A student that obtains his or her learner’s permit that is between the ages of 15.5 to 17.5 is required to have a professional driving lesson prior to driving with an adult who possesses a valid California driver’s license and is over the age of 25.
I have seen other driving schools charging less than Teen Road To Safety for training, why?
Most driving schools only teach the bare minimum to help your teen pass the DMV driving test, not including defensive driving. Your child’s life is priceless. Why would you buy your son or daughter a $5.00 helmet to protect his or her head? Allow us to train your child to be well-educated in traffic laws and safe driving techniques. The value of our courses is unbeatable.
Do you offer defensive driving courses?
Yes, see our advanced driver training course section.
Can we get extra lessons?

I’m afraid to drive on the freeway. Can you help?

Do you teach classroom sessions or have online classroom training?
