Q: WHAT DO YOU TEACH IN EACH LESSON?

A: WE ADJUST THE LESSON TO THE NEEDS AND WANTS OF EACH STUDENT. BEFORE THE START OF THE FIRST LESSON, WE ASK THE STUDENTS OR PARENTS WHAT THE PURPOSE OF THE COURSE IS AND WHAT THEY EXPECT TO ACHIEVE WITH THE COURSE. BASED ON THAT, WE PLAN THE LESSONS ACCORDINGLY. WE TEACH PROPER LANE, FOLLOWING DISTANCE, RIGHT OF WAY, U-TURNS, APPROACHING INTERSECTIONS, PASSING, LANE CHANGING, PARALLEL PARKING, STRAIGHT IN PARKING, 3-POINT-TURN, BACKING, HWY DRIVING, HAZARD AVOIDANCE, ROUNDABOUTS (SIMPLE AND MULTILANE), SAFE VEHICLE OPERATION, DEFENSIVE AND EVASIVE MANEUVERS, ROAD-DRAGE HANDLING, ROAD AWARENESS, RAILWAY X-ING, EMERGENCY PULL-OVER, AND MANY OTHERS! THESE ARE TOUGHT DURING THE COURSE OF MULTIPLE LESSONS BASED ON THE STUDENT'S PROGRESS, THERE'S JUST NO WAY TO COVER ALL IN ONE LESSON.

Q: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRIVING TEST AT THE SCHOOL AND DRIVING TEST AT THE DMV?

A: WITH DRIVING TEST AT THE SCHOOL, THE TEST WILL BE ADMINISTERED BY ONE OF OUR STAFF MEMBERS. THERE WILL BE A PRE-EXAM PRACTICE TO GET FAMILIAR WITH THE EXAM AREA. WE WILL PROVIDE A CERTIFICATE ONCE THE STUDENT PASSES THE TEST. IT IS THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO GO TO A DMV OFFICE TO GET THE DRIVER'S LICENSE. THE DMV CAN RANDOMLY REQUIRE A STUDENT TO RETAKE THE DRIVING TEST AT A DMV LOCATION. A VALID FLORIDA LEARNER'S PERMIT IS REQUIRED FOR THIS SERVICE. SEE SCHEDULE. WITH DRIVING TEST AT THE DMV, THE TEST WILL TAKE PLACE AT A DMV LOCATION WITH A DMV EXAMINER. STUDENTS NEED TO PROVIDE THE CAR. (SUNNY ROAD DRIVING SCHOOL DOES NOT PROVIDE TESTS AT THE DMV. ONLY AT THE SCHOOL).

Q: HOW MANY HOURS OF LESSONS DO I NEED BEFORE TAKING MY DRIVING EXAM?

A: FLORIDA REQUIRES THAT MINORS COMPLETE A MINIMUM OF 50 HRS OF DRIVING (10 OF WHICH SHOULD BE AT NIGHT) BEFORE TAKING THE DRIVING EXAM. IDEALY, THESE HOURS SHOULD BE A COMBINATION OF DRIVING SCHOOL TRAINING AND FAMILY ASSISTED PRACTICE. MOST STUDENTS START THEIR TRAINING WITH THE DRIVING SCHOOL AND GRADUALLY TRANSITION TO DRIVING WITH AN ABLE FAMILY MEMBER TO COMPLETE THEIR PRACTICE HOURS. IT IS A GREAT IDEA TO KEEP A DRIVING PRACTICE LOGBOOK. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD A FREE PDF DRIVING LOG HERE

Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF I FAIL MY DRIVING EXAM? 

A: YOU CAN TAKE THE EXAM AGAIN AFTER 24 HRS. THERE WILL BE A RETAKE FEE OF $25.00. STUDENTS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO TAKE THE TEST TWICE AT THE SCHOOL. AFTER A SECOND FAILED ATTEMPT, STUDENTS WILL NEED TO TAKE THE EXAM AT THE DMV. 

Q: WILL YOU HELP ME PASS MY DRIVING EXAM, (wink wink)? 

A: IF YOU HAVE THIS TYPE OF QUESTION, PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF THE EMBARRASSMENT OF A SCORNFUL REMARK. WE PRIDE OURSELVES IN PREPARING OUR STUDENTS TO BE SAFE DRIVERS AND TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR COMMUNITY. WE LIVE HERE, AND SO DO OUR CHILDREN. THE LAST THING WE WANT, IS TO ALLOW AN UNSAFE PERSON TO OPERATE A MOTOR VEHICLE ON OUR ROADS. IF YOU ARE NOT READY TO TAKE THE EXAM, YOU CAN PRACTICE SOME MORE AND TAKE THE EXAM WHEN YOU FEEL READY.
