BEHIND-THE-WHEEL TRAINING PROGRAMS

All of our driving lessons are conducted one-on-one with state-certified driving instructors who are passionate about ensuring that all of our students have a positive experience as they learn how to drive. We understand that driving for the first time can be intimidating, which is why our expert instructors work hard to create a motivating learning environment that boosts both competency and confidence behind the wheel. Parents and students can both feel assured knowing that every driving instructor we hire is highly trained to demonstrate and teach the gold standard of safe-driving practices. For further peace of mind, all of the driving lessons take place in our DriveSafe cars that are equipped with ample safety features. 

When it comes to searching for driving lessons for teenagers, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Some students may need more time with a professional driving instructor due to their skill development, and some require more driving lessons because their parents can’t easily help them log the 50 hours of behind-the-wheel practice required by the Colorado DMV

Regardless of what your unique situation looks like, we offer a variety of behind-the-wheel training packages that can accommodate your needs.

6-Hour Driving Course

In our 6-hour driving course, students will learn the fundamentals of safe driving over three 2-hour driving lessons. Each lesson will be conducted one-on-one with a state-certified driving instructor and will involve customized guidance and feedback. Students will learn the basic skills needed for safe driving during the first lesson and, during subsequent lessons, our driving instructors will gradually add more speed and complexity to their instruction. 

Drivers License Test

In addition to offering behind-the-wheel training for teenagers who are ready to learn how to drive, students can also take the drivers license test with one of our friendly and experienced driving instructors. All students receive detailed feedback after the test is complete, so regardless of whether or not a student passes, he/she will leave the experience with encouraging guidance on how to be a safer driver.

3-Hour Defensive Skills Day 

This fun and engaging defensive driving course allows students to learn advanced driving skills in a hands-on environment. Skid control, hazard avoidance, precision skills, distraction prevention, and car maintenance are the major areas we focus on during this class. Students enjoy the various courses and activities that our driving instructors organize (e.g., wearing drunk goggles), and they learn potentially life-saving driving skills in the process. 

44 Additional Hours of Behind-the-Wheel Training 

Parents who have busy schedules are often unable to take their teenagers out for practice drives on a consistent basis. Consistent practice is a key element of mastering safe driving habits, and it’s also necessary in order for teens to log their required 50 hours of drive time in a time-efficient manner. In addition to our 6-hour driving course, DriveSafe also offers 44 additional hours of driving lessons to help students complete their hours and become eligible for a drivers license. By completing all 50 hours with a professional driving instructor, students will receive extensive expert instruction and feedback, and their parents will not have to stress about making time for practice drives in their already-busy lives. 

Behind-the-Wheel Training Progress Tracker

Our Behind-the-Wheel Progress Tracker is an online tool that allows parents to monitor their students’ progress on the ten key skills needed to become a safe driver. These skills include:

  • departing/parking
  • steering
  • turning
  • scanning for and managing hazards
  • positioning correctly in lanes
  • managing speed and traffic gaps
  • determining the right of way
  • using the IPDE method at intersections
  • communicating
  • utilizing the SMOG method when changing lanes. 

These are all skills that our driving lessons will cover, and students can use their progress tracker to help identify which areas they have mastered and which ones they need to continue to practice. 

DriveSafe for Life Guarantee

Our DriveSafe for Life Guarantee™ revolves around our commitment to giving our students the tools needed to become safe drivers for life. Even if a student has graduated from our driving school, he/she can always request to speak to a driving instructor about any driving-related questions or concerns. The driving instructor will explain the issue or suggest any further instruction that can benefit the student.

Drivers License Test

During the drivers license test, students will be evaluated on over 100 items that measure their ability to safely operate a vehicle and follow Colorado driving laws. All tests take place with a state-certified driving instructor in a DriveSafe vehicle (unless interlock devices are required).

Short Notice Availability

We understand that our students and their families lead busy lives, which is why we aim to make scheduling the drivers license test as convenient as possible. We offer flexible weekday and weekend appointments to ensure that we can work with our students’ schedules. Additionally, we can often accommodate those looking for short-notice availability. Many students have been eagerly awaiting earning their drivers licenses for quite some time, and we do everything we can to expedite the fulfillment of this exciting milestone by making it fast and easy to book an appointment at one of our drivers license school locations.

Personalized Feedback Provided After Each Drivers License Test

As the leading drivers license school in Colorado, DriveSafe sees the value of education in every moment. Because of this, all students receive valuable feedback after the drivers license test is complete, regardless of how they performed. Our feedback is always personalized and encouraging, as it is our hope that our students leave us feeling both more confident and more competent behind the wheel.

DriveSafe Vehicle Provided

Our drivers license tests are conveniently conducted in DriveSafe vehicles (unless the individual taking the test needs to use an interlock device). We ensure that all of our vehicles are equipped with important safety features, so parents and students alike can feel comforted knowing that our high safety standards allow the testing experience to be as safe as possible.

Two-Hour Drivers License Course

Students who opt for our two-hour drivers license course will receive a two-hour driving lesson before taking the road test. This extended driving lesson is taught by a highly experienced, friendly driving instructor, and the encouraging feedback students will receive can help them fine-tune the skills they need to pass. 

One-Hour Drivers License Course

Students who sign up for our one-hour drivers license course will receive an hour-long driving lesson with a state-certified driving instructor prior to taking the official road test. The driving lesson is taught by an instructor who knows exactly what items the drivers license test covers, and being able to ask lingering questions and receive feedback from an expert can help students feel more prepared and confident.
