Rosedale Driving School FAQ's

Is Rosedale Driving School a certified driving school in California?
Just because a driving school appears on our directory of driver training institutions, we cannot guarantee that they are fully licensed to offer driver training courses in California.  We highly recommend that you contact Rosedale Driving School directly or the California DMV to find out for sure if Rosedale Driving School offers driver training courses that have been approved by the State of California.
Do you know if I can complete my behind-the-wheel training with my mother or father instead of attending a behind-the-wheel training course like the ones offered by Rosedale Driving School?
Some states allow teen-agers to complete their behind-the-wheel training with their parents instead of attending a professional driver training school.  We recommend that you contact the California DMV or Rosedale Driving School directly to find out if California allows parent-taught driver training.
What happens if I don't know how to operate a manual-shift vehicle? Will Rosedale Driving School allow me to do my behind-the-wheel training with an automatic-shift car?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about driving any type of car--stick-shift or automatic-shift!  However, if you prefer to complete your behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Rosedale Driving School and inform them before you enroll in their driver training course.  That way you will know for certain if they will accommodate you.
I live in a very rural area, where there are mountains and a lot of unpaved roads. Do you know if Rosedale Driving School teaches students how to drive in rural areas like where I live instead of just driving on smooth, paved roads in urban areas?
Since you live in a rural area, a local driving school such as Rosedale Driving School will tailor your driver training to handle the conditions in your area.  
I'm turning 14 in a few weeks. Can I get a learner's permit to drive in California after my 14th birthday?
Most likely, no.  Most states (though not all) have laws which require that you be at least 15 or 15 1/2 before to be eligible to apply for a learner's permit.  Nevertheless, you may wish to contact the California DMV office or a California-certified driving school such as Rosedale Driving School to find out for certain what the minimum driving age is in your local area.
Am I required to take a Bakersfield California classroom or online drivers education course before I can register for a behind-the-wheel training course through Rosedale Driving School?
