FAQ About the Teen's Program

Q. Will I learn the skills I need to pass the DMV drive test?
A. Yes! But more importantly, while you're mastering the drive test skills, you'll also be preparing for a lifetime of safe and confident defensive driving.
 
Q. What is a lesson like?
A. Ann's behind-the-wheel driving lessons are intense individualized coaching sessions. You'll be
engaged with your personal instructor throughout the session. At times you will be asked to make a
running commentary, a verbal description of driving conditions and the factors affecting your
decisions.
 
Q. Will I start driving right away?
A. You'll start driving right after a quick orientation and assessment. Your ability to take control will
depend on your readiness and previous driving experience (if any). Throughout the lesson, your
instructor is there as a safety net so you'll be safe as you make the mistakes that are part of the
early learning process.
 
Q. Where will I take my lessons?
A. Your instructor will pick you up and drop you off at your home or other previously arranged
location.
 
Q. What are your cars like?
A. Your instructor will pick you up in a normal -looking car - no embarassing signs or stickers! The
only difference will be a dual set of controls (brake and accelerator) on the right-hand-side so that
your instructor can take control of the car if necessary.
 
Q. What should I bring?
A. You need to bring your driving permit and your payment for the lesson (unless you've paid in
advance). You'll need to wear closed shoes - that is no sandals or open-toed shoes.
 
Q. When can I start behind-the-wheel driver training?
A. You can start taking driving lessons once you are 15 1/2 and have completed or are enrolled in a
driver training course. For more information, check the current DMV handbook or go to www.dmv.ca.gov.
 
Q. What will the lesson cover?
A. Your lessons will cover the basics of driving in all kinds of real life situations such as: freeways,
city traffic, residential neighborhoods, hills, intersections and one-way streets.
 
Q. Do I need proof of insurance?
A. While you're driving our vehicle, you'll be covered by our insurance. If you take the drive test in our
car, we'll provide you with the necessary insurance and registration documents.
 
Q. What is the cost for the 6-hour certification training I need to get my license?
A. Ann's 6-hour behind-the-wheel training is $540. Price quoted for pick up and drop-off in the San
Francisco area; out of area pricing may be higher. Prices are subject to change. See the Cost page for additional information.
 
Q. How do I pay?
A. You can pay two ways:
1) Pay in Advance - you or your parents mail a check for the total amount of your lessons (i.e., $540
for the 6-hour learn-to-drive package)
or-
2) Pay for each Lesson - you pay your instructor $180 at the beginning of each two-hour session.
