State Required Driving Lessons & License Test

Behind-the-wheel training is not only a state requirement for young teens, but it also offers a wide range of benefits. 

Our driver training 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 driving test than students who wait. 

Once you have held your permit for a full year and have logged a minimum of 50 hours of driving (we recommend 100 hours or more), including 10 hours at night, you are eligible to take your Drivers License Test with DriveSafe and achieve the exciting milestone of becoming a licensed driver!

AGES 16- 16½  CO Driver's License Requirements:

  • Hold valid permit for at least 12 months

  • Complete Drive Time Log Sheets with 50 hours of driving time (at least 10 hours at night). Must be signed off by parent or legal guardian
