Teen Driving Lessons FAQ

DriversEd.com has the answers to help you get behind the wheel and on the road!

Do I need to take driving lessons?

    In some states, teens have to complete a specific number of hours of in-car teen drivers training to earn a drivers license. But even if your state doesn't require teen behind-the-wheel training, it's still a good idea to take driving lessons with a licensed driving school.


    Teen behind-the-wheel training with a licensed professional helps you gain the skill, confidence, and experience you need to become a safe, competent driver. With DriversEd.com, you'll learn with experienced driving instructors in one of our MINI Cooper or Countryman vehicles. Each lesson is tailored to your needs and based on your progress.
