Sign Up Here for Drive Times
Updated November 21, 2022
For the winter of 2023, we will be driving in Connersville only. In the spring we will drive meeting at Centerville, Richmond and Connersville. In the summer of 2023 we are planning to meet in Connersville, Rushville, Richmond and Centerville. In the fall, we will drive meeting at Connersville, Richmond and Centerville. Spots meeting at our locations other than Connersville will be very limited and do fill up fast.
In order to sign up for a drive group, you MUST have your learner's permit and online class or in person classroom COMPLETED and PASSED. If you sign up, and do not have your permit and completed your class training in full, we will automatically delete your drive time sign up.
During 2023, we will be offering three types of BTW drive time groups:
-ADVANCED LEARNER: 3 days of BTW Drive Time: 1 student driving with the instructor for 3 days at 2 hours each day. These students should have at least 30 or more hours of their state required practice hours completed.
-INTERMEDIATE LEARNER: 4 days of BTW Drive Time: 2 students driving 4 days with an instructor for 3 hours each day. Each student will drive 90 minutes each day. These students should have at least 20 hours of their state required practice hours completed.
-BEGINNER LEARNER: 6 days of BTW Drive Time: 2 or 3 students driving 6 days for 2 to 3 hours each day for 6 days. Each student will drive for 1 hour each day. These students should have at least 10 hours of their state required practice hours completed.
The more students practice with their parents, the better driver they will be in the long run. We only get 6 hours of drive time with students. If we have to spend all or most of the 6 hours in a parking lot with them trying to teach them how to control the car, this does not give us much time to work with them on the road in city, rural and highway driving situations. We are parents with teenagers too, so we do understand from a parents side how challenging it can be to teach your child how to drive. To start out take them to an open parking lot and pretend it is the road, then build onto their driving after they have gotten better with controlling their turns, speed and braking. After a few practices in a parking lot, move on to driving in low traffic subdivisions, then move on to some city driving in low traffic areas.
When signing up for a drive time group, you will need to provide the following: your learner's permit information, date of classroom completion and total hours of practice drive time. Reminder, if you fail to provide this information or if your classroom is not completed, we will automatically delete your drive time sign up. We will not be contacting you to let you know that we deleted your sign up.
Once you hit submit, you are signed up to for your behind the wheel driving instruction. It is your responsibility to keep track of the drive times that you sign up for. We cannot guarantee that we will call or email to remind you of your drive times. Please put these dates in your calendar and show up on time for each of your drive sessions. For each of your drive sessions, you MUST bring your learner's permit. We cannot allow you to drive if you do not have your physical learner's permit.
On the first day of driving, students must bring their learner's permit and their driving log. If you have any questions, please call us at 765-377-7026.
