Fairfield Driving School FAQ's

Fairfield Driving School is listed on your website as a driving school which offers behind-the-wheel training courses. How do I know if Fairfield Driving School is a licensed school in Connecticut?
While we include a list of driver training schools on our website for your convenience, we cannot guarantee that every single one of them is currently licensed by the Connecticut DMV.  We suggest you contact Fairfield Driving School directly or the Connecticut DMV to find out if Fairfield Driving School is a fully-accredited driving school.
Do I have to take a driver training course? Can't my parents just give me my driver training?
There are some states that do permit parents or guardians to provide their teen-aged kids' required behind-the-wheel training in order to obtain a driver's license.  However many states do not allow any type of substitution for attending a professionally-taught behind-the-wheel training course.  We suggest you contact your state's DMV to find out what the laws are in your state regarding hands-on driving instruction.
What if I don't know how to drive a vehicle with a stick-shift? Does Fairfield Driving School have an automatic-shift vehicle they'll allow me train with?
Since you're just learning how to drive, you probably don't know how to operate either a stick-shift or an automatic-shift vehicle!  However, if you have a preference as to a stick or an automatic, you probably should call Fairfield Driving School to see if they can accommodate your request prior to your signing up to take their behind-the-wheel training course.
Since I live way out in a remote location where driving on dirt roads and rugged terrain is the norm, will Fairfield Driving School be able to teach me how to drive in a non-urban environment? Or do they only prepare you for city-driving?
Since you live in a remote location, odds are that any local driving school in your area such as Fairfield Driving School will want you to be able to drive safely on unpaved roads and rugged terrain.  We recommend that you contact Fairfield Driving School directly to find out exactly what they offer.
Can I apply for my Connecticut learner's permit once I turn 14?
Most likely, no.  Most states have set the youngest age to obtain an instruction permit at 15 or 15½.  You may want to contact the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving instruction school like Fairfield Driving School to learn more about the minimum age requirement in Connecticut.
Do I have to take both a drivers education classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course in Fairfield Connecticut to get my Connecticut driver's license?
The laws vary depending on which state you live in, but most states do require that pre-licensed drivers sign up to take a defensive driving classroom course and a driver training course.  You may want to call a driving instruction company like Fairfield Driving School and find out if they offer either (or both) of these programs.

Is hands-on driver training required in Connecticut in order to be licensed to drive a car?
