Teen Program

  • Serving As Your Denver Driving School Since 2010

    At Learn to Drive Colorado, our state-certified, 30-Hour classroom course is unlike anything else out there. It covers everything required by the state plus the entire Colorado Driver Handbook . Not much sitting around and daydreaming goes on here. Every student starts the course with their own LTD car and LTD Bank Account. (Okay, the car and money aren't real. We wish they were.) Through a unique game that occurs during the class, students learn about the realities of car ownership and the consequences of good and bad decisions. Depending on the choices they make, how they participate in class and a little bit of luck, the students can win real-life prizes (like a gift certificate to Subway). Our students really learn the Denver driving school material because they interact with it differently.

    As well, we've teamed up with Action Karting to create our Go-Kart program where students practice the important skills discussed in class. This two-hour program is key to integrating many important, Colorado defensive driving skills talked about in the class and it provides hands-on learning. Plus, it's just plain fun! (Instead of talking about driving, we're actually doing it.) In addition, it's a great break in the middle of an intensive week of study and learning. For some students, this will be their first time driving a motorized vehicle. We like that it's done in a controlled, safe environment.

    At the end of the class and if your teen is, at least, 14 years old and 11 months old, your teen will be eligible to take the Colorado Written Permit Test. If they pass, they'll be issued a certificate of completion for both the 30 Hour Class and the Permit Test. These state certificates are part of the documents they'll need when they go into the DMV to get their Denver, Colorado driver's permit issued once they are 15 years old.

    Our Denver driving classes are usually scheduled for six hours a day over five days during school holidays to allow students with busy schedules to fulfill this requirement quickly. We also find that it's easier to take the class in this way given busy school, homework and sports activities. The class usually runs from 10 to 4:30 Monday through Friday. On the day of the Go Kart program, we meet one hour earlier at the track. (Please check our Thanksgiving and Christmas Break schedule as the days may be different during those holidays.)

    Denver Drivers Permit Requirements

    Please note: If your teen is starting the Graduated Driver's License process between 14-1/2 and 15-1/2 years old, they're required to take thirty hours of Driver's Ed either online or in the classroom. Once the permit is issued, they'll need to keep it for 365 days before applying for their license. They'll also be required to keep a driving log to validate fifty hours of Behind-the-Wheel drive time (with at least ten of those hours at night). Additionally, the state requires every teen to take six hours of Colorado Behind-the-Wheel training if they apply for their license prior to turning 16-1/2 years old. Please see our discounted packages. For more information, please feel free to contact us by phone or email.

I had Debbie for my test instructor and she was beyond lovely. The built up nerves and anxiety simply went away when I sat in the car with her. Super sweet and great at what she does.

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with instructor, Debi Tombling. She completed two of my daughter's behind the wheel driving sessions. In addition, she conducted her behind the wheel exam (12/1/16), which is a nerve-wracking experience for both parent and child. She was polite, professional, and did an excellent job at putting my daughter (and myself) at ease. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for driving classes for their teenager.
