Ideally, we don’t choose a Driving School only because they’re the cheapest in town.
Driving is not something that you can just learn through books, online materials or through mere discussions with other drivers. You need to practice driving as well and this is what is going to make you a real driver. Driving has become a life skill. With the help of a professional, you will eventually not only learn the skills of driving but also become a safe and independent driver.
So when selecting a Driving School please consider the following tips:
- The right driving school is accredited according to state laws and will prepare you to be a safe, confident driver. You can check the driving school’s license status by going online at www.dmv.ca.gov then Click the “Online Services” and Occupational License Status Information. If you are visiting a Driving School Office, make sure that they are State License and Bonded with their permit posted on the wall. Driving School should list their License number and Office Address on website as well not just a phone number.
- Compare prices costs between driving schools and always have a clear understanding of all expenses. Research and do your homework and ask questions why the rate is high or why is it too cheap? Is the Driving School in town new in this business? Find out the quality of services and make sure that the Driving School/Instructor fits your needs, even if it costs slightly more.
- Consider recommendations from previous students, friends, family who were satisfied with the service. Check also the ratings or other reviews online.
