Frequently Asked Questions
DriveSafe Driving Schools
Learning to drive is a major milestone, and your choice of a driving school is very important. 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™, in which we take a positive and encouraging approach in helping students learn the rules and regulations of driving, develop safe driving habits, and gain the confidence to be safe decision makers while driving.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
As a courtesy to our drivers and other students who may have been available for that time slot, we charge a $50 fee when students cancel their driving lesson with less than 24 hours notice or if they simply fail to show up.
Most students find testing with DriveSafe to be faster and friendlier than testing at the DMV. By creating a less stressful environment, we are able to help students perform much better on their test.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the DMV may not be offering license tests at the moment.
WHY TAKE DRIVERS EDUCATION?
Get your drivers license sooner
Students who take an approved drivers education program can get their permit as soon as their 15th birthday and their license as early as their 16th birthday. Students who skip drivers education cannot get their license until after they have turned 17.
Drivers Education provides knowledge and hands-on training that most parents are unable to give their teens. We teach concepts like IPDE, SMOG (for lane changes), maintaining a proper space cushion, proper steering technique, searching and scanning, and much more. Professional instruction will help your teen learn to be a responsible driver and safe decision-maker behind-the-wheel.
Most major insurance companies offer sizeable discounts for students who complete comprehensive drivers education programs. Over a span of years, the insurance savings will more than offset the cost of the program (not to mention the substantial cost savings that come from being a safer driver!)
Safety and Peace of Mind
Enrolling teens in a comprehensive drivers education program gives them their best opportunity to learn to be safe and responsible drivers, and offers parents a greater sense of peace of mind. Studies have shown that teens who have taken professional drivers education do a better job of staying safe on the road.
