About the 6-Hour Behind-the-wheel Instruction

Some information about the Longmont Driving School 6-hour Behind-the-wheel Instruction:

  • Per State Statute, 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training is mandatory if you are under age 16½ at the time of applying for your driver license (Statute 42-2-104).

  • Make sure to bring your instruction permit to your driving appointment. Your permit will be validated with the DMV in DRIVES.

  • Our experienced instructors offer 1-on-1 instruction perfectly adapted to the needs of any student.

  • Pre- and post-drives meetings with parents/guardians are included, as well as student paperwork reflection covering skills to improve in the future. Both are separate from the full 120 minutes of instruction time.
