Dave’s Driving School offers road driving with personal instruction for $350* and it’s well worth it. Just ask anyone that has driven with me.  I will pick you up from your house or school if possible or we will find a convenient meeting spot. 

If you have anxiety or do not want to drive with others in the car, private driving lessons are available for $100/hour.

We accept Venmo (Dave or Lisa McConnell @davesdriversed), cash, or checks.  There is a $50 NSF fee if the check does not clear.  Payment is due at the first drive.

We recommend a home study packet to be completed while we work with you. We are happy to answer and explain anything that is unclear. We will provide the packet on the first drive. Most students finish the packet in a few days. The cost is $100.

While driving you, we discuss vital information for safety and defensive driving skills to ensure your success on the road. 

Most questions are answered on this website. Text Dave McConnell at 801.602.6065 to set up an appointment.

You need three 2 hour drives.

Drives can be scheduled at any time between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. 

We drive Monday through Saturday.

Please text 801.602.6065 to schedule your first drive. The average time it takes to complete this course is 4 weeks. If you are in a hurry, we can reduce that time by half, so you can finish in 2 weeks. This fast-track option costs an additional $100. 

Besides the 6 hours we drive with you, you will need 34 hours of driving with your parents or legal guardian.  

You must pass a 15-minute road exam given by the DLD (Driver License Division) or a private, 3rd party tester. Companies cannot test their own students. We can recommend some private testers if you would like to use one. We charge $55 for tests on weekdays, $60 on weekends, and $65 for same-day testing. Most testers do not have a waiting list, unlike the DLD. Click on the road test tab to see the requirements. Be sure to watch my instructive 8-minute video.

We’re excited to help you learn to drive.  With the help of your parents, we can help teach you to drive safely and defensively.
