Home Study Program

Students may now take the classroom portion of the driving program in the comfort of their own home and at their own pace if they prefer.  They will receive a copy of the classroom lectures and discussions on DVD, quizzes, videos, and a study guide and workbook to complete at home.  When they have finished, they will return these materials and they may then take the behind-the-wheel instruction.

Private lessons

Adults and teenagers may take behind-the-wheel instruction private lessons.  New drivers, nervous drivers, international students, and individuals wanting to improve their driving skills take these lessons at their convenience.

Class Schedules

Classes are held at numerous high schools in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley.  The classroom portions are organized in this manner:

  1. Bullet Sunday Only classes are held from 9 am - 3 pm and may be completed in five weeks.

  1. Bullet Christmas Session classes are held where students may complete the classroom portion of our course in four or five days.

  1. Bullet Summer Classes are designed to help students complete their driver education during their summer break.  Some of these may be completed in one or two weeks.

After the classroom portions are completed, students then take the behind-the-wheel portion of the course.  They do not occur at the same time.
