FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Our program is available to students and adults at least 15 years old. You must have reached your 15th birthday to start the online or traditional class.
The registration fee is $419.00 per student (our current special) and is due at the time of registration. This fee includes the online class and 6 hours of in-car instruction. There is a discount applied when enrolling sibling groups. Please contact the office for more information.
Any student at least 15 years of age or an adult may enroll in our program. Unlike a state funded program, you don't need to wait until the program is offered at your school you may enroll at any time. You also don't need to be a registered student with any school.
This program meets all state requirements: 30 hours of classroom instruction (online or traditional) and 6 hours behind-the-wheel instruction. You may also add additional 1 hour behind-the-wheel instructions if needed as well.
The learner permit is not required before the start of the online or traditional class. However, a permit is required before we can schedule your behind-the-wheel lessons. AA Indiana Driving School does recommend that students obtain the learner permit AFTER completion of the class portion (online or traditional). All students are required to take the written knowledge test at the BMV and this class will help them prepare for that test.
The license branch will ask for the Certification of Driver Education Enrollment form (C.D.E. form). Although, AA Indiana Driving School recommends that you complete your online 30-hour instruction before obtaining your permit we will still provide you with this form any time after registration and payment is received. You will also need to provide the student's birth certificate (original or certified copy) or valid Passport, the student's social security card (must be signed), and 2 proofs of student's address (report card, class schedule, bank statement) Note: Student's proof of address cannot be more than 60 days old. Also, we cannot make decisions regarding acceptable I.D. or proof of residency that is strictly up to the BMV
After completion of the 30 hours of online instruction AND the 6 hours of in-car lessons and passing of both, the student may request and pay ($40) for the road test. Unlike some of the other schools and the BMV you do NOT need to wait until the student is age eligible (16 years and 90 days with driver's ed. Effective July 1, 2015) to take the road test. You will still need to wait for the student to be age eligible to get their license, but you can get the road test done and out of the way.
Although the road test is free at the BMV and $40 to take it with us there are many advantages. First, the BMV only does road tests on only certain days through the week. We offer it 7 days a week, during the normal driving lesson availability therefore you can get in quicker than at the BMV. Secondly, at the BMV you must take the test in your own vehicle at the driving school you take it in one of our vehicles. Also, if you choose to take the road test with us you can choose what instructor you take it with, which may make the student more comfortable taking it with somebody they have already drove with. Lastly, unlike at the BMV, you do NOT need to wait until the student is age eligible (16 years and 90 days with driver's ed. Effective July 1, 2015) to take the road test. You will still need to wait for the student to be age eligible to get their license, but you can get the road test done and out of the way.
Effective July 1, 2015 – Assuming the student completed both class and in-car instruction, each student must be at least 16 years and 90 days and hold their learner permit for 180 days before applying for the probationary license at the BMV. (without driver education 16 years and 270 days).
Yes. Please be advised AA Indiana Driving School will still need you to provide proof by providing us with the Certificate of Completion from the online program. You can do this by bringing it by our office, faxing, emailing or mailing it to us before we can schedule your in-car lessons.
In regard to the online program: Once you have entered your individualized activation code to access the Online Program you have 180 days to finish it before it expires. In regard to the in-car lessons Students will be withdrawn from the program and all fees paid will be forfeited two (2) years after initial payment/enrollment. If you would like to begin or continue with the program you must reenroll and pay the current enrollment fees.
If you enrolled less than 2 years ago, you may continue with the program by contacting the office.
Yes, we do not allow more than 3 in a week, and no back-to-back days are allowed. However, we recommend doing 1 a week and making sure you practice the skills you learned and are comfortable with them before the next lesson.
Usually, during the school year there are openings starting at 3:00pm and the last one ending around 8:00pm Monday-Friday and then time slots on Saturday and Sunday mornings as well. During the summer time we have appointments 7 days a week the first one starting at 8:00am and the last one ending at 8:00pm through the week and Saturday and Sunday morning appointments as well. We ask that the parents and student coordinate together the best times for them before scheduling.
No. However, we do recommend that you practice what you learned after each lesson and are comfortable with it before the next lesson.
You may or may not have the same instructor for each lesson; it all depends on the you and the day and time you schedule. We recommend have at least a couple different instructors to better help you prepare for the road test since whether or not you choose to take the road test with AA Indiana Driving or at the BMV you will not know for sure what instructor you will get.
Yes, but keep in mind this may take longer to get you through all your lessons depending on the availability of the instructor?
