Frequently asked questions
When is driver education required?
Driver Education is helpful at any age, but it is required for individuals under the age of 18 who wish to apply for a New Hampshire driver license. To meet this requirement, anyone under 18 must take an approved driver education program.
Do I need experience before I start divers ed?
No experience is required, however, practicing outside of the classroom will help you pass the driving exam in order receive your license.
What can I do as a parent/guardian?
Parents/guardians are required to log 40 hours of driving, 10 of which must be at night. Forms may be found on the DMV website. Behind-the-wheel lessons will be incorporated with the classroom portion of the program. It is critical that all parents take active involvement in their teen’s driving experience. We ask that you encourage your teen to prepare in order to ensure a successful result and maximum benefit from the program. Our goal is to have each student complete two one-hour in-car lessons per week.
Is there a parent night?
Prior to each class, we require that you and your new driver attend an orientation class. This class is designed to provide you with a course overview and pertinent information on training your new driver, as well as address any questions or concerns you may have. You and your teen will also receive materials helpful in preparing for this important life step.
