Do I Have to Drive With an Instructor in Denver, CO?
Colorado requires teens of a certain age to drive with an instructor in order to be eligible to take a drivers license test.
If you are under the age of 16 ½ you will need to complete 6 Hours of Behind-the-Wheel driver training with a state-certified driving instructor in order to be eligible to take your driver’s license test. If you are older than 16 ½, there is no state behind-the-wheel training requirement with a driving school instructor before taking your drivers test.

How Much Does It Cost To Take Driving Lessons?
Driving school lessons vary in cost because every student’s learning journey differs. Many driving school students require professional instruction and additional practice to fully develop their confidence and safety habits behind the wheel before taking a driving test. For others, meeting their minimal training requirements and practicing with a legal guardian on their own drive time is enough. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, you are worth the time and investment it takes to achieve your driving goals, whichever driving school program you deem right for you.
