When a student that has not reached 15.5 years old takes our course we simply hold onto the MV3001 form they need to take to DMV to obtain their instruction permit and you can come pick it up when they are old enough.

Are there any hidden fees in your pricing?
Absolutely not. After your son or daughter passes their state instruction permit test, you will have to pay the DMV $35.00 when you pick up your son or daughters instruction permit. The only other way you would have to pay us more money would be if you want your son or daughter to take additional behind the wheel lessons (at $40.00 an hour) or if you “No-Show” us for reschedule a behind the wheel lesson with less than a 24 hour notice. When this happens we will charge you a fee of $30.00. Each School has a cancellation fee ours is quite low. We hate doing this and would much prefer to pay an instructor to actually work. Just as you expect to get paid for the hours you are scheduled to work, so do they and are paid whether the student shows up or not. Giving us 24 hrs notice gives us an opportunity to put a different student in that spot.

Please ask your student as this was gone over repeatedly in class and they were given a handout to bring home to you as well. ... should they have forgotten all that (it happens) just go ahead and contact us
