Legacy Driving School FAQ's

Legacy Driving School's address and phone number is listed on your webpage. How can I find out if it is an approved driver training school in Texas?
Even though we provide a list of driver training schools on our website, we have no way of knowing for sure as to whether or not a particular school is licensed by the Texas DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses.  We strongly suggest that you contact Legacy Driving School directly or check with the Texas DMV to find out for sure if Legacy Driving School is a licensed school.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving instructor in Texas, so taking a McKinney behind-the-wheel training course like the one Legacy Driving School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the Texas DMV or a licensed driving school like Legacy Driving School and ask them.  While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
Do you know if Legacy Driving School will let me take my behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift vehicle? I don't know anything about using a manual-shift.
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know a whole lot about driving ANY type of vehicle, be it a stick OR an automatic!  Nevertheless, if you have a preference, you probably should contact Legacy Driving School and see if they can accommodate you before registering for their driver training course.
I don't live anywhere near a city. There are unpaved roads and bumpy terrain all around my house. How do I know if Legacy Driving School will train me on how to drive in a remote area like where I live and not just teach me how to drive in a town-or city-type environment?
Since Legacy Driving School is a local driver training company in your area, it's a safe bet that Legacy Driving School will be motivated (or perhaps required) to teach its local customers how to drive on bumpy terrain.  If you want to make certain, however, you may want to call Legacy Driving School to find out exactly what's included in their driver training course before you sign up with them.
If I'm 14, can I get an instruction permit to drive in Texas?
Possibly.  However, you should be aware that most states require you to be at least 15½ years old before you can get a learner's permit.  We recommend that you contact the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving school such as Legacy Driving School to find out exactly what the minimum age requirement is in Texas.
Is taking a drivers education course in a classroom or online sufficient in McKinney Texas or do I also have to enroll in a driver training class with a professional driving instructor?
