Note to parents:

Sometimes it is actually better to start your child while younger, such as at 15-16 of age. This might seem scary, but some teens need to be trained while they are young, so that they start to understand and acquire the "motor and behavior programming" and skills as they mature.

When they are still minors and are still under your care, you have better control of the situation to help set rules. If you wait until they turn 18, for example, then they are now supposed to be adults. They might make mistakes in judgement and would not be willing to learn and be patient for the progress of learning.

Therefore, for many teens, it is better to start their driving program as soon as legally allowed, then you can work with us and your teen throughout the time that they are under your supervision.

Please call us at 813-631-9700 to clarify any questions that you have.
