Driving Instruction for 16 & 17-Year-Olds
Teens - 16 & 17 year olds
A 16 or 17-year old looking to get a driver’s license has two options. They and their parents can choose to be ‘Home Schooled’ which requires the student to take an 8-Hour Drug & Alcohol/Safe Driving Practices class (a parent must attend two of the 8-hours with the student) or choose to be ‘Professionally Schooled.’
Teens that are Home Schooled will need to hold their CT Learner’s Permit for 180-days, and compete their training prior to taking the on-road portion of the driver’s test. Professionally schooled students must hold the permit for 120 days.
It’s a smart idea to contact your auto insurance carrier and ask them, “what would be my discount for my teen driver if they are ‘Professionally Schooled’ verses ‘Home Schooled'”
The answer to that question will tell you what your discount would be if your child took our Full Teen Course, compared to the 8-Hour class. Keep in mind, if your child goes to college they may stay on your insurance policy until they are in their early 20’s, so the discount you are quoted could really be 5-times more!
We’ve become a popular driving school option for not just the Stamford teens, but we also get quite a few students from Greenwich, Cos Cob, Darien, Norwalk, Old Greenwich and New Canaan because of our services, prices, and convenience!
Please feel free to explore all of the information we have on our website, and if you need additional information, or have questions please feel free to reach out to us. Of course we hope you find our school is your best option, but more importantly, we hope you make the right decision for your teenager!

Driving Lessons for Teens - 16 & 17-Years-Old
Driving Lessons for 8-Hour Class Only Students, And Students NOT Enrolled in Our Full Teen Program
We provide driving lessons 7-days a week! We don't ask students to buy a bunch of lessons to get a discounted rate. Keep in mind students who take the 8-Hour class with us qualify for a discounted rate.
You MUST have a valid Connecticut Learner's Permit (or driver's license) to be eligible for driving lessons. We require at least 24-Hours notice if you need to reschedule a driving lesson (there is a $40.00 for failure to notify us).
For all driving lessons we will pick-up and drop-off locally for your driving lessons.
