Teen Drivers Education

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


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.

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.



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.


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. 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.

NEW from DriveSafe: Unlimited Online Permit Test Practice to help you pass on your first try!

Now you can practice as much as you like on 200 test questions designed to be very similar to what you’ll see on your actual permit test. Build your confidence for passing the test.

Only $29.


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!

“The overall experience from classes to staff members was fabulous! The defensive skills day was incredible too! I believe my teenage driver has been given the knowledge and shown the techniques to be as safe as possible while driving.”

“The drive instructor did an amazing job. My daughter is still talking about the things she learned during her two-hour driving session even several days after the drive. She was very apprehensive going into it and returned full of confidence.”

I love that the Defensive Skills Day was included in our package. Anything that can help a new driver with her/his confidence is a bonus!
Keely S, Highlands Ranch
Friendly staff and always helpful. Both of my sons went through this program, and Drive Safe made it an easy experience. Putting a teenager on the road is scary and they hold her hand along the way.
Tom R, Denver
Outstanding instructors who provided our permitted driver a lot of good information. Each drive exposed them to different conditions and experiences. It was extremely easy to set up the drive test and there was always great communication.
Thomas P, Greenwood Village
Instructor was very good at explaining driving techniques in a way that my daughter did not understand from written materials and parent behind the wheel instruction. Instructor was patient and knowledgeable. All around great!
Kathy B, Evergreen
Courteous, professional staff that make the new driver and parent comfortable with the entire experience. Excellent at providing feedback and things to work on for the next drive lesson.
Ryan M, Denver
I had the best experience at DriveSafe. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. My instructor was knowledgeable, friendly and wanted me to succeed. His tips and guidance made the difference between failing and passing in my case. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend DriveSafe!
Jamie F, SE Aurora
Drive safe is an amazing program. Both my kids took the 30-hour course program and successfully passed the permit test on the first try. They both loved the classes and their instructors. I highly recommend this place to anyone who has kids ready to get their permits. Money well spent. Thank you!
