How do I sign up for classes?: It's simple, scroll to the top of our website and click on "Sign Up For Class" in the menu options, a new tab will open in your browser where you will find a sign up form, fill out all of the required info and we will contact you to confirm class registration. You can also give us a call at 781-337-1003 to register over the phone and ask any questions you may have. Please be sure to leave a message if we don't answer and we will return your call within 24-48 hours.
How old do I need to be to start driver’s ed?: The student can start the classroom portion of driver’s ed at 15 years and 9 months old. Once the student turns 16 and obtains their permit, he/she can start setting up driving hours (as long as the parent class has been attended).
What is a “Parent Class”?: The registry requires that a parent/guardian attend a parent/guardian class if the student is under 18. It’s a 2 hour class that only one parent/guardian, and not the student, has to attend. The class is valid for 5 years and we recommend that you hold onto the Parent Certificate for any future siblings that will be attending driver’s ed in the future. If you attended the class at another driving school then please provide us with a copy of the certificate.
How do I schedule driving hours?: Once the parent class has been attended/credited and the student has their permit, then you can give the office a call at 781-337-1003 to set up your appointments. Please note that 12 driving hours and 6 observation hours take time to complete so we recommend you call as soon as you get your permit. You have 2 years to complete the course. The course is non-refundable. What if I need to cancel a driving hour?: To cancel your appointment, you will need to call the office and leave a message if we do not answer. Appointments must be canceled 24 hours in advance to avoid a $40 charge, there are no exceptions.
What happens once I finish the course? Once the office confirms that all requirements have been met, your information will be forwarded to the registry. Processing your drivers education certificate could take 7-14 days. To check the status of your certificate, click on the link "Check your certificate" at the top of our website. Please note, if you are 18 or older, you do not have to wait for your certificate to be processed before scheduling a road test.
How do I schedule a road test? Once your certificate is posted and you have held your permit for 6 months (under 18), you may either schedule your road test through New England Driving School- or on your own by calling the RMV directly. Please note that as a driving school we have access to the RMV's "alternative schedule" which gives us the opportunity to book your road test significantly faster than the registry's normal daily schedule in which everyone has access to.
If you have any other questions or concerns please call New England Driving School at 781-337-1003
