Following each section a test is administered.

Behind-the-Wheel Driving:  After the student has completed, the “Instructional Classroom” the student will sign up for three separate two hour driving sessions (6 hours total driving).  If the student lives with the local area (or fairly close), the Instructor will pick up the student up at their home or school and return them to their home after the driving lesson has been completed.  If outside the local area, other arrangements will need to be made. The student will be expected to successfully pass the “Behind-The-Wheel” driving competencies as dictated by the State of Kansas.

Cost:  Please call (913) 310-9898 for current pricing.  Cash, credit cards, money Orders, or checks accepted.

In the event a student requires additional driving or classroom instruction time to meet minimum competencies to pass the course, an additional fee will be charged to cover this instruction.

Additional time driving with instructors, at the student’s or parents request, is also available for an additional fee.
