Teen Driving Program

6-hour Academy Teen Driving Program will assist you in your journey of getting your California driver license. Additionally ensuring you a safe and comfortable learning environment. Learning to drive for the 1st time is a life post. Almost a rite of passage. Driving is a valuable life-skill that will be used continuously. We will be your mentor and coach as we start this journey together…


Carrie Lampman, CEO/Head Instructor, designed our modern, comprehensive behind-the-wheel training program. Our program ensures you are receiving a safe, fun and enriching lesson. All instructors were personally vetted, hired and trained by Carrie and follow her training and program for consistency.

We use automatic Honda Civic Hybrids, and each car has an extra brake and mirror. In addition, we have full insurance coverage on our vehicles. So our students are covered for each lesson.



We suggest scheduling the 1st two lessons about a month apart. So it allows the student time to practice on what they’ve have learned. The 2nd lesson is a nice check-in to review progress and provide further training. The 3rd lesson, where we typically cover freeway, is scheduled a couple months later so the students have time to build their confidence.


After completion of the program, students can add-on A la Carte Courses as needed for further training and advancement of skills. However, we are not rigid to the scheduling but this is our suggestion.


Most of our teen lessons offered are “piggy-back” with another student. This is where we end a scheduled appointment at the home of the next student being instructed. Therefore, the next student will drive the previous student home. We never piggy-back lessons with adult students.


Private one-on-one lessons limited to either certain instructors and appointment times only. Please email our office for more information.


Select ACADEMY DRIVING PROGRAM LESSON – TEEN for all three appointments when scheduling. We recommend all students to schedule your first two lessons right away to ensure optimal scheduling.
