Payment plan option available: Must have a credit card on file. First payment is due upon first call (day of registration). Second payment will be due 15 days after first payment date, or on the day of the 2nd lesson, whichever comes first. Credit card on file must be used for both payments. We do not guarantee our students will pass the DMV written and the behind the wheel tests. However, if our program is followed thoroughly, our first-time pass rate is very high.
