Mr.R's Driving School

Classes at Mr. R's are fun and interactive. We make sure to teach to all learning styles: visual, auditory, kinesthetic. Students are provided with a study guide/course pack and all materials needed for class. There is no class work sent home and if you have to miss a class we offer classes year round so you can make up classes at your convenience! We generally recommend students take drivers education as soon as they are eligible so they can have as much time on their permit to PRACTICE as possible. This is especially important in Michigan as we have 4 very distinct seasons that present different driving challenges.

Programs and Classes

  • Segment One is the class you take anytime after you turn 14 years, 8 months old. It includes 24 hours of classroom time, 6 hours of behind the wheel driving and 4 hours of driving observation.
  • Segment Two is 6 hours of classroom instruction. There is no driving component to Segment Two. You MUST have your Level One License for at least 3 MONTHS (90 days) and have at LEAST 30 hours of driving (2 at night) completed to be eligible to take Segment Two. We recommend taking Segment Two just prior to taking your Road Test.
  • A Road Test is the last step before getting a license. You should be able to drive ANYWHERE, ANYTIME, ALL BY YOURSELF with NO QUESTIONS asked before you sign up for a Road Test. Mr. R's conducts Road Tests Monday-Saturday during daylight hours. You must call the office at 517.339.0133 to make an appointment.
  • Mr. R's has a motorcycle test site in Grand Ledge, located at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 517 S. Clinton St., Grand Ledge, MI 48837. Appointments are made by calling the examiner, Torey directly at 517.290.7368. (Please do not call after 9pm!) She has plenty of convenient times available.

Horrible teacher-student experience. One teacher in particular, Mr. Bates, was often misleading students by giving them out of date study packets leaving them unprepared, manipulating teenagers into drinking alcohol as young adults (while stating not to drive while drunk), and overall setting a bad example for impressionable teens. Would not recommend putting your student in Mr. Bates' class if possible.
