Cheap School FAQ's

Is Cheap School licensed by the California DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses?
Although we include Cheap School in our directory of driving schools for Aptos California, we cannot make any assurances about whether or not Cheap School is certified by the California DMV.  You should contact Cheap School directly and ask them if you are thinking about enrolling in their Aptos California behind-the-wheel training class.
Do I have to take a behind-the-wheel training course? Can't my parents just give me my behind-the-wheel 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 taking a professionally-taught driver 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.
Do you know if Cheap 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 Cheap School and see if they can accommodate you before registering for their driver training course.
Since I live way out in the country where driving on dirt roads and bumpy terrain is the norm, will Cheap School be able to teach me how to drive in a rural 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 Cheap School will want you to be able to drive safely on dirt roads and rugged terrain.  We recommend that you contact Cheap School directly to find out exactly what they offer.
After I turn 14, will I be eligible to obtain my instruction 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 Cheap School or the California DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in California.
Do I have to take a Aptos California classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a driver training course through Cheap School?
This requirement varies from state to state but most states do mandate pre-licensed drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based defensive driving course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a driver training course.  You should ask Cheap School if they offer one or both programs.
California's DMV has told me that I need to take a behind-the-wheel training course. Do you know if Cheap School offers this course or not?
Cheap School does offer the behind-the-wheel training course that California requires all new teen-aged drivers to take.  For more information about the courses Cheap School offers, we recommend that you contact Cheap School directly.
What do I need to do to get a California drivers license in Aptos California?
Most states require that teen-agers who are applying for their first driver's license complete both a safe driving classroom course and a driver training course.  Cheap School may be able to help you fulfill the behind-the-wheel training portion in California.  Please contact Cheap School for more information. 

Is it necessary for me to take a behind-the-wheel training course in order to get my first California driver's license?
Yes, it is.  All teen-aged drivers applying for their first driver's license in California are required to take a state-approved behind-the-wheel training course.
Is it okay for me to register for a driver training class in California before I receive my California instruction permit to drive?
Probably not.  Most states require first-time drivers to have their instruction permit before they are allowed to enroll in a behind-the-wheel training program.  You should contact a driving instruction company like Cheap School and request more information.
