Students attend a one day, 8-Hour classroom session usually held on a Saturday.
After completing the classroom portion, they are given the login information for
our online scheduling system to set up their in-car portion of the training.
Their in-car portion will be broken down into the appropriate number of 2-hour
segments based on the course chosen. Upon completion of both the classroom and
in-car portions, the student will receive the necessary paperwork for the student
to be allowed to take the State Road Test. Certificates for the insurance discount
will be emailed within a couple of days to the email address on record.
We follow a Student Instruction Outline, which helps the instructor to tailor the training to the individual student. It covers everything from basic car control to advanced defensive driving skills and road test maneuvers. Our goal is to teach every student that they can be a collision-free driver for life.
No. We find it is in the best interest of the student to use the tools South Carolina
has provided for this. The student can read the manual which can be downloaded from the
DMV website. The DMV also offers an online practice exam here.
Also, the DMV has a smartphone app to practice the test. Just go to your app store and
search for "SC Driver Exam"
No, however, every beginner driver must have held their permit for a minimum of 180 days before they can take their road test. We recommend a student have their permit before they begin their behind-the-wheel training.
Students must take at least one 2-hour lesson so we can determine the student is ready and likely to
pass the Road Test. If the instructor agrees the student is ready, he/she can arrange to take
the Road Test with one of our instructors. We do not take anyone to the DMV to test or allow our
vehicles to be used at the DMV for testing.
After completing the beginner course, if the instructor agrees the student is ready, the student
can call the office to arrange to take the Road Test with one of our instructors. We do not take
students to the DMV for testing or allow anyone to use our vehicle at the DMV.
