Teen Drivers Education

More families in Colorado choose
DriveSafe than any other driving school.

TEEN DRIVERS EDUCATION

As Colorado’s largest and most trusted driving school, DriveSafe provides comprehensive drivers education to prepare teens and adults to be safe drivers for life. All of our programs feature the DriveSafe for Life System™, which helps students learn the rules and regulations of driving, develop safe driving habits, and gain the confidence to be safe decision-makers while driving.

All of our comprehensive programs meet State requirements for 30 hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind-the-wheel training, which will help prepare students for a lifetime of safe driving.

Driving Lessons
One-on-one driving lessons with expert and caring state-certified instructors that are tailored to the needs of each individual student and designed to build a foundation of safe driving habits.

Our State-approved online course includes games and activities that make the learning experience engaging and fun. Coupled with behind-the-wheel training, students prepare for a lifetime of safe driving.

Students 15½ and older are eligible to take an intensive four-hour program on driving laws and safe driving principles. Students are encouraged to study the Colorado Drivers Handbook before class.

At DriveSafe, we know how busy teenagers’ lives can be. Our Online Scheduling System makes it easy to view class options, schedule classes, and modify them as necessary.

TEEN DRIVERS EDUCATION FROM CLASSES TO LICENSE TESTING

TAKE YOUR STATE REQUIRED DRIVERS EDUCATION

As a teen in Colorado, you can start drivers education as early as age 14½ and receive your permit at age 15. Colorado’s graduated licensing laws allow new drivers to gain driving experience and skills gradually over time in low-risk environments. DriveSafe delivers the state-mandated 30-hour classroom program in engaging and interactive courses at twelve convenient locations, including weekends, evenings, school breaks, and even online. Our Behind-the-Wheel training focuses on building skills that help students become safe decision-makers while driving.

GET YOUR PERMIT

DriveSafe’s classroom experience will prepare you to pass the written permit test, a 25-question multiple choice exam on the rules and regulations of driving in Colorado. More than that, our program focuses on teaching you how to make safe decisions while driving. Once you have completed the classroom program and are at least 14 years and 11 months old, you are eligible to take your permit test. Upon passing the test and reaching your 15th birthday, you can apply for your permit at the DMV. The next step is to start driving with a parent and to schedule your driving lessons!

TAKE YOUR STATE REQUIRED 6 HOURS OF DRIVING LESSONS & LICENSE TEST

Driving lessons are not only a state requirement for young teens, they also offer a wide range of benefits. Our lessons are designed to cultivate a lifetime of safe habits and increase confidence behind-the-wheel. We find that students who complete at least six hours of professional instruction within the first six months of holding their permits are more likely to pass the license test than students who wait. Once you have held your permit for a full year and logged a minimum of 50 hours of driving (we recommend 100 hours or more), including ten hours at night, you are eligible to take your Drivers License Test with DriveSafe and achieve the exciting milestone of becoming a licensed driver!

Joette M, Aurora
Love the friendly staff and ease of making appointments. My daughter has had Larry Soady as a driver instructor twice and he is so patient and kind. So glad that you opened back up and she can take her driving test tomorrow since her birthday passed already in April.

“The course was quite enjoyable. One of my favorite parts of the course was that I could complete it at my own pace at home. This required me to be responsible in completing the course and retaining the information, which I liked. The tests after every chapter also helped in the retention of information…”

The instructors were very helpful and patient.

I liked the course. It taught me things I’ve never heard of like the IPDE process. Some strengths are they go in to good detail when explaining things. The chapter quizzes were good too because it keeps your mind refreshed about what you just learned. There wasn’t really any bad things. I think over all it’s a really good course.

During the Covid-19 situation our child was able to take her class online and be ready for her permit test.
Parent, Highlands Ranch
My daughter attended the Defensive Skills Day and it went well. I got to ride with her at the end when I returned, and I have to admit, I was very shocked at how much she improved! She drove me through the timed obstacle course and her skill level blew me away. She said she has much more confidence in driving now. This course is very well worth the money and I highly recommend it to all parents.

I thought all the instructors did a very good job throughout the course of the day. They were all very informative, explained everything well, and I learned a lot at each station. My favorite part of the class was the skid course and the obstacle course, because both were really fun as well as good to know/use for the future.
