The in-car driver training course is approved by the California Department of Motor Vehicles and we will give you the DMV Certificate you need plus all of the information you need to pass the DMV drivers license test and drive safely. Some teens need just the basic 6 hours course that is required by CA law. Some parents and teens want a more complete course. Allied Driving School has experienced and knowledgeable instructors that will teach you what you need to learn to become a safe driver. We follow the California Behind-the-Wheel Teaching Guide as DMV requires. We know how excited you are to drive and we are excited to teach you. Our Instructors are dedicated professionals that make learning how to drive easy, safe and fun. Free Pick and drop off. You may be picked up from home, school or work. We provide private lessons, just you and your Instructor will be in the car, unless a parent wants to ride along. We do not use our students as taxi cabs to pick up the next student. When one student picks up another student the lesson must be based on how to get to the next students pick-up location NOT on how to teach the current student how to drive. When you sign up for a 2 hour lesson, you will get 2 full hours of driving time. All of our vehicles are equipped with dual controls and signs so that we may safely take you out into traffic right away. Communication - we feel that good communication is essential to a quality driving lesson. This is why we provide you with an Instructor that has good communication skills.

We want to provide you with Professional driving instructors. At the end of your training we want you be a skilled driver with the habits you need to stay safe on the road for the rest of your life. Discounts - the best discount you will ever get is from your insurance company, after you are licensed and turn 18. A good safe driver saves money on insurance and on the day to day costs associated with owning a car. The most important savings is lives. So take the time to learn how to drive the right way. A qualified Instructor understands driving and driving laws and rules AND follows the laws him/herself. If the Instructor does not understand and obey the laws and regulations he will be unable to teach you to obey the laws and be a safe driver. CA law prohibits any licensed driving instructor from teaching a student a DMV test route so we do not teach the DMV test (CA DMV LINK TO INSTRUCTOR AGREEMENT READ SEC 3) we want to teach you to be a safe driver - not just teach you a DMV test route. We welcome parental ride-alongs. If you're uncomfortable about taking lessons with a stranger or your parents just want to insure that your instructor is doing a good job, a parent is welcome to go on the lessons with you.

    Need a brush-up course for a DMV driving test or just to make sure that your skills are up to par? Often when we have driven for many years, we get complacent and our driving habits may “slip up” leading to failures on DMV tests and/or collisions and tickets. Sometimes we never learned some driving skills because of driving conditions at the time we learned to drive. Some people have never had any formal driver training. As we age our reflexes may slow down and we need to compensate Sometimes we are not looking far enough ahead when driving due to vision problems and we may not be aware of it until a problem develops. Allied Driving School offers in-car behind-the-wheel lessons to teach you to drive or to brush you up on your driving skills. Allied Driving School can help you prepare for your DMV test, both written and driving.
