Driver Education - Teenagers

This is the first step to getting a Driver’s License for all students. Before being able to complete your Behind the Wheel Road Skills Test , Driver's Ed must first be completed. The Virginia DMV requires that all teenagers under 18 complete 30 hours of Drivers Education from a driving school before being able to get their driver’s license. We offer flexible scheduling to help you finish your class as fast as possible!

What a great driving school! I would definitely recommend to friends and family. My brother and I both took Behind the Wheel with Abba and he was super helpful!

Mr. Abba is a very good instructor who really helped me improve my driving skills. My friends recommended him to me, and I have recommended him to my friends.

He’s extremely friendly while still being an educational and informative instructor. I never really felt anxious driving with him, as he made a comfortable environment with his conversation and gentle instruction. I really learned a lot from him! 10/10 :)
