A) Those under 18 years old must continue to wait six months after obtaining their driving permit before they are able to apply for their license. This is the time for parents to get our new drivers as much behind the wheel experience as possible. The state requires 65 hours and the parent must continue to sign a form stating this was completed.
B) Students must complete the entire online and simulator portions of this course.
C) Students must complete 6 hours of Behind the Wheel training with A & B Driving School. The student must have a valid driver’s permit to take the Behind the Wheel lessons. In the last half hour of the required 6 hours, the Driving Skills test will be administered. There are no additional fees for this service and PARALLEL PARKING IS NOT REQUIRED; we will be focused on observing the road rules and safety.
D) All guidelines set by the State of Pennsylvania must be followed by A & B Driving School. Our goal is to ensure all students that we issue a driver’s license to are ready to enter our road systems safely on their own.
E) A & B Driving School instructors will make every effort to work with all students to adapt to both their after school commitments and work schedules. As a reminder to all parents, the process of preparing our teens to enter our highway system is very serious and during the six month waiting period experience is needed. Please do your part in both working with your teens and also setting a good example by practicing responsible safe driving habits yourself.
