We love teaching new drivers!
Our Teen Driver Education Program is approved by the Secretary of State. The program requires the student to take a minimum of 30 hours of classroom instruction. The program also requires that each student must take 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction along with 6 hours of observation. The student may also opt for our other course that requires 8 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction with no hours of observation required. Each option meets the requirements set-forth by the state of Illinois.
The course teaches the students the basic maneuvers required to operate a motor vehicle safely and proficiently. Classroom instruction will be given in 15, two-hour sessions.
After attending four hours of class or two sessions, students are eligible to obtain their permit from the Secretary of State, as long as they are 15 years of age. Palos Driving School will prepare students for the permit test during the first two classroom sessions. Palos Driving School will also provide all paperwork necessary to obtain instructional permit.
Students should bring a black or blue pen with them each night. Books will be provided for classroom instruction.
Each student will also be given an Illinois Rules of the Road.
Students are required to turn in all work for any absences. It is the students' responsibility to schedule make up classes with the office.
Students may be scheduled for a behind-the-wheel lesson after they attend a minimum of 4 hours of classroom instruction and obtain an instruction permit from the Secretary of State. Once they receive their permit, they schedule their lessons with our office. We offer flexible hours seven days a week.
Note: All students must have their Instruction permit in-hand in order to take their driving lesson. If the permit is not in-hand, the lesson will be treated as a cancellation and the student will be charged the full cancellation fee.
