Since Macatawa Driving School appears on your website, does this mean they've been approved by the Michigan DMV to offer driver training courses?
The list of driving schools on our webpage is provided as a convenience to our customers only. We CANNOT guarantee that every single school listed is fully-certified by the Michigan DMV. You may want to call Macatawa Driving School directly to find out if they offer a state-certified behind-the-wheel training course.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving supervisor in Michigan, so taking a Zeeland driving school course like the one Macatawa Driving School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the Michigan DMV or a licensed driver training school like Macatawa 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 Macatawa Driving School will let me complete my behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift vehicle? I don't know anything about using a stick-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 Macatawa Driving School and see if they can accommodate you before signing up to take their driver training course.
I live in a rural area, that has a lot of dirt roads and rugged terrain. Will Macatawa Driving School teach me how to drive in BOTH city AND rural environments?
If you live in a rural area, chances are very good that a local driving school like Macatawa Driving School will want you to be taught how to drive safely on the local area's terrain.
After I turn 14, will I be eligible to obtain my learner's permit so I can begin to learn how to drive?
It depends on which state you live in, however most states unfortunately require you to be at least 15 (or sometimes 15 1/2) before you can be issued a instruction permit. We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as Macatawa Driving School or the Michigan DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in Michigan.
Do I have to complete a Zeeland Michigan drivers education classroom course or online course before registering for one of Macatawa Driving School's driver training courses?
Each state has its own laws, but most states will require first-time drivers to take both a driver training course plus either a drivers education classroom course (which are about 30 hours in length) or an approved online drivers education course. You may want to ask Macatawa Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
