Effective September 2017, ADA will only offer driver education. To simplify the registration process and minimize confusion you have only one option. We no longer offer individual lessons and will be focused solely on teaching our teen drivers in our driver education program. This program includes the road test.
Driver Education is 8 hours of classroom & 6 hours behind the wheel training. This is required for any driver under the age of 17 in SC. If a driver is 17+ then taking driver ed is no longer a requirement, but the driver will still receive their certificate for an insurance discount (check with your agent). The best way to look at driver education is in two parts. The classroom is done on one day, 9-5pm (check sign up tab for dates) and then you call the office the following week or at the time you register to start scheduling your driving sessions. Depending on how busy your student is, you may want to start looking for class dates early and get that part out of the way. Students only need to bring their permit and $5 for lunch (unless providing their own) on class day. Parents must sign the student contract for any student under the age of 18.
Driver Education Package $375 – Includes the SC Road Test
Defensive Driving (Insurance Discount Class) – $150 – This is held with our driver ed classroom sessions. Please check Class Schedule Page for those dates.
