Course Outline

 

The 30 hours of classroom instruction are divided  into two-hour sessions which usually last 5 weeks. Days and times may vary.  The second week of class students should be ready to take the written test at Secretary of State Office.  Once the student receives his/her Permit, he/she will be scheduled for a behind the wheel instruction and observation time. 

 

Behind the wheel instructions are scheduled as 1.5 hr of driving (90 minutes) and 1.5 hr (90 minutes) of observation at a time and are to suit the student’s convenience and also include free pick-up and drop-off  within 3-mile radius of our location on Belmont Ave.

 

After completing the course we will immediately certify our students with the Secretary of State, and give Auto Metro Driving School Certification of Completion which is used toward high school graduation requirements.
