 It is Texas state law that anyone ages 18-24 must take a minimal 6 hour Driver
Education course prior to testing for their driver's license.  This course
does not provide
the same insurance discount with it that is available with the more intense Teen Driver
Training Program.
 Therefore, we include a Defensive Driving Course registration in our
fee, or the  Drugs and Alcohol Driving Awareness Program, or the Occupant, Child,
Passenger, Safetybelt course registration within
our PACKAGE fee. We encourage
you to attend these courses and receive insurance discounts as you enter this
expensive time in your driving life
.  Students may also purchase two hours of
practice with instructor behind the wheel for $60 more in preparation for your
roadway test with the DPS.

Adult Behind the Wheel Instruction All Ages ~ $50.00 per hour
We offer behind the wheel instruction for Adults who currently hold an
instruction permit or a driver's license and who have completed the
Defensive Driving portion of our training program first.

The behind the wheel drive times are 2 hours in length, and are rated at a hourly charge of $50.00.
The skills and needs of the driver will determine the amount of hours of training that will need to be purchased under contract by the
student.  It is our experience that a NEW/NEVER BEEN behind the wheel driver will require a minimum of 8 hours of instruction to be
read to test with the DPS roadway examiner
.  Drive times are scheduled conveniently for the student once driving fees are paid in full.  
Driving lessons are scheduled on  The server fee of $15 will be required in order to establish an account with

Any new driver simply wanting to schedule a "help session" of 2 hours prior to their going to test at the DPS with a roadway examiner
may schedule a $70 session through the office.

All BTW instruction is completed by licensed trainers in a one on one instruction setting in the car.

Pick up and drop off for instruction times is included in the cost of the lessons, but outside of the lesson time of two hours. Drive
times can be made to accommodate the student, but extremes must be avoided.  Hourly fees subject to change with the gasoline
cost flux.

Upon completion of Behind the Wheel training, the instruction permited student may purchase an additional drive session, for an
additional cost, allowing the student to complete their road test for their permanent driver's license in our DTC cars at the DPS bureau
(on MLK in the new Lubbock Business Park).  The cost of this road trip session is
$150.00.  All scheduling of these tests must be
made at the office, while accessing the DPS calendar of road test schedule availability, AND our instructors and vehicles.  

If student's show a language deficit, they will be required to provide their own interpreter for instruction to continue
learning to drive or receive a refund for all remaining unused paid tuition.
