  6 hours of in-car lessons + cost of the online course

Online classroom cost  is separate and varies between $50 and $99 depending on the course you choose. The cost of the in-car lessons is $390.

This is intended for students taking their classroom portion online and getting their in-car instruction with us here at A&A Driving School. The student will receive 6 hours of in-car instruction and 6 hours of observation with another student or parent. We must be notified that the student has completed 50% of their online course to be put on the waiting list. There is a wait time to start depending on how many other students have notified us during a given period of time. This can vary anywhere from 5 to 11 weeks depending on how many students have contacted us before you.  The student will be with a licensed instructor for a two hour block of time. This goes by quickly once they begin. The online portion must be finished to do the final drive.
