Course Information

Dave’s Driving School offers road driving with personal instruction for $300 and it’s well worth it. Just ask anyone that has driven with me. (see the reference tab and reviews)  I will pick you up from your house or from your school if necessary and drop you back off.

I accept Venmo (Dave or Lisa McConnell @davesdriversed), cash, credit cards or checks.  There is a $10 processing fee for credit cards.  I prefer that payment is done before or at the start of the first drive, however, if necessary we can work out other arrangements if done ahead of time.

I recommend a home study book to be completed while I work with you. I am happy to answer and explain anything that is unclear. I will provide the book for you and give it to you on the first drive. The book can be easily finished in a few days. The cost is $70.

If you have already started a different online course, no problem. I can still drive with you and answer any questions you may have. The course does not have to be finished before you drive.

While driving you, I can help you with your online lessons, discuss vital information on safety and defensive driving skills to ensure your success on the road. You will be receiving vital information not only online but also during the road driving time.

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

I prefer driving you on 4 different days at 1.5 hours per drive.  These drives can be scheduled at any time between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.  I drive Monday through Saturday. Please text me with a day and time that works for you.  Drives may be done 4 days in a row if you schedule in advance. Drive times are customized to fit your needs and busy schedules. Don’t wait to get started.  Grab a friend and let’s do this!  You don’t need any drive time with your parents before you start with me.  I have my own brake and it’s safer for me to drive you first.  You can start the day you get your Learner’s Permit.

Besides the 6 hours I drive with you, you will need 34 hours of driving with your parents or legal guardian.  You don’t have to drive on the “range” (parking lot) because you get twice as much road time as the high school students when you drive with me. This is a HUGE advantage because there is no substitute for actual road driving experience.

You must pass a 15-minute road exam given by the DLD (Driver License Division) or a private, 3rd party tester. My company cannot test its own students. (See the Road Test tab)  I can recommend some private testers if you would like to use one. Most of them charge around $45 and they 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.

I’m excited to help you learn to drive.  With the help of your parents, I can help teach you to drive safely and defensively.
