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.

Testimonials

Irene Y, Louisville
Before our 1:1 lesson my daughter had a true fear of driving. She drove for 2 hours, and the instructor gave her the confidence she needed to get behind the wheel more often.
Matthew H, Denver
I really loved that we worked on the things that I wanted to work on. This was an issue I had at my other driving school, so it was amazing to drive on busy roads and the highway. He did an amazing job of pushing me out of my comfort zone and teaching so many techniques. Overall, it was an amazing lesson and experience.
Janice B, Wheat Ridge
The staff are friendly, welcoming, and patient to their students. I could tell that they were not only there for work but truly had a passion to help students learn how to drive safely.
Andrew, Colorado
“Very comfortable. Easy to understand. Also walked me through my mistakes and how to avoid them. I felt like I was driving with a friend, no nerves or frustrations. Fun route as well.”
Ryan M, SE Aurora
The driving instructor was very clear and helpful with his tips and explanations. I did not feel berated because I was being given constructive criticism that I could understand.

The instructors were amazing! They were able to teach my son things that I’m not very good at doing… Like parallel parking! My son was nervous to be stuck in a car for 2 hours with the instructors but each time when he finished his drives he was so excited to tell me everything he had learned! It was well worth the money spent!
Jacob W, Littleton/Lakewood
DMV was so slow in processing our son’s driver license application that we got down to two days before he was supposed to move to college and then they told us he needed to do a drive test. We called DriveSafe and they got him scheduled for the following day. They were very nice and helpful, he passed, and now he’s off to his college adventure. Thanks DriveSafe!
Charles N, Highlands Ranch
It was great to have my daughter learn the right way to drive. I have sent my 2 kids to DriveSafe, and I am very happy I did!

One-on-one driving lessons that are tailored to the needs of each individual student and designed to build a foundation of safe driving habits.

Highly trained, state-certified instructors who are passionate about helping students develop the skills to be safe drivers for life.

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.
