Bay Area Driving School FAQ's

How do I know if Bay Area Driving School is certified by California's DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses?
While we do include Bay Area Driving School's contact information in our driving school directory, we cannot say with certainty as to whether Bay Area Driving School is certified by the State of California.  We recommend that you either contact Bay Area Driving School directly or possibly the California DMV to find out if Bay Area Driving School is a licensed driver training school.
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 Bay Area Driving School?
Some states allow teen-agers to complete their driver training with their parents instead of attending a professional driver training school.  We recommend that you contact the California DMV or Bay Area Driving School directly to find out if California allows parent-taught behind-the-wheel training.
What if I don't know how to operate a vehicle with a stick-shift? Does Bay Area Driving School have an automatic-shift vehicle they'll let 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 manual or an automatic, you probably should call Bay Area Driving School to see if they can accommodate your request prior to your signing up to take their driver training course.
Since I live way out in a remote location where driving on dirt roads and bumpy terrain is the norm, will Bay Area 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 the country, odds are that any local driving school in your area such as Bay Area Driving School will want you to be able to drive safely on dirt roads and bumpy terrain.  We recommend that you contact Bay Area Driving School directly to find out exactly what they offer.
Can I apply for my California 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 California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driver training school like Bay Area Driving School to learn more about the minimum age requirement in California.
Do I have to take both a defensive driving classroom course and a behind-the-wheel training course in Union City California to get my California driver's license?
