Driving is a complex task that requires drivers to integrate information from multiple inputs simultaneously and navigate unpredictable and potentially challenging situations on the road. Some drivers may find it difficult to stay focused, process the information needed to drive safely, and control impulses. Today’s drivers must deal with ever increasing traffic situations and more distractions.

Students with learning differences or a disability may need specialized attention when learning to drive. The education and training for the student is an investment that requires full commitment and patience as we go through the process of learning all aspects of driving. This is a process that takes time and dedication from everyone involved. Parental participation is critical to the success of the student.

The classroom portion is 10 DAYS – 3.0 HOURS EACH DAY, for a total of 30 CLASSROOM HOURS. The behind the wheel portion of the program will begin AFTER the classroom hours have been completed.

The Behind the Wheel portion consists of:

  • 16- 1.5 Hour Driving Lessons
  • For a total of 24 DRIVING HOURS.
