NA OFFICE UPDATE! Our NA office officially closed on June 1st & ALL operations are out of our main Aiken office location at 831 Neilson St. off Daughtery Rd. We are still serving the NA area, but with the office closing it simply means you have to drive to Aiken for your classroom & test date (if testing with ADA). ADA still picks up in Aiken County for your drives. If you live outside of Aiken County more than a couple miles, simply email us before registering to ensure we can accommodate you based on how far out you may be.
Once you register online, you will receive a confirmation immediately stating that your payment was received and instructions for your classroom session date. If you don’t see, “Thank you for your registration & payment”, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and advise us so we can check on your payment & provide you with the necessary information regarding your registration. PLEASE DO NOT TRY YOUR CARD AGAIN UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED BY ADA THAT YOUR PAYMENT DID NOT GO THROUGH TO AVOID A 2ND CHARGE. You will not receive any further communication prior to your class date. On the checkout page you will see all the instructions regarding your class date, please print this page. However, in case you missed it…here it is!
1. Class is from 9am – 5pm (doors open at 8:45am…do not arrive earlier)
2. Parents need to escort their students inside if under 18 yoa to receive orientation paperwork. Then parents are free to leave and return for their student at 5pm.
3. Students only need to bring their permit (if they have one) & $5 for lunch unless they are bringing their own or made other lunch arrangements. $5 is for pizza & drink(s).
Classroom sessions are held at our Aiken office located at 831 Neilson St Aiken, 29803 (off Daughtery Rd in the old Burns Dance Studio building).
Jan 12 – Open
*Please note that effective 11/1/18, ADA will only test upon request and it is NOT a part of your driver education tuition. Driver ed tuition is $300 & testing at ADA will be $75 & only upon request due to limited Examiner availability. Simply put, register for driver ed and test at the DMV unless our Examiner is available when you need him to be and it fits your schedule.
Effective 8/27, students & parents will select their drive times. An online invitation will be sent via email within 48 hours after the classroom session. Once you receive the invite you can go ahead and “REQUEST” your dates/times for the 3 driving sessions. ADA will review your request to ensure we have not overlooked any conflicts on our end and if not, you’ll receive an “ACCEPT” notification. If “DECLINED” it simply means ADA has had a last minute issue and that time is no longer available. Once you have 3 ACCEPTS for the drives, those are your dates/times. ADA will only offer tests to those who request via email after the classroom date and it’s based on Examiner availability which is limited. Please note, a student can not test until they have held their permit for 180 days, so whether you test at ADA or the DMV you need to schedule your drives based on that minimum wait time. A very descriptive handout is provided to the parents when you drop your student off on the classroom day. Due to parking restrictions here at the office, parents only need to come in and pick up the handout and then return at 5pm to pick up their student.
Thank you for choosing ADA!
