Our driving school instructors are well versed in the state curriculum requirements and know how to make the classes educational and enjoyable at the same time.
Every parent/guardian is required to attend a 2 hour class to become aware of the driver education their child will receive. Massachusetts strives to have parents involved in every aspect of their child's driving. This class explains the ever-changing regulations and allows you to ask questions and know what to expect. This course is included free of charge in our Full Package as well as our 30 hour Classroom offerings. We currently accept parents whose students are attending a full drivers education program at another driving school for a $25 fee.
