6-Hour Behind-the-Wheel Instruction Only
Behind-the-Wheel (BTW) instruction is one-on-one instruction that occurs on the road in an MCDE DDS-approved vehicle.This instruction is intended for students who have strong attention, intact sensory acuity and some experience driving a vehicle. As safety and competence dictates, BTW instruction includes Range Work, Residential Driving and Expressway Driving. (If student's instructor determines student is lacking proficiency behind-the-wheel, not all components may be covered to ensure safety to student, instructor and other drivers on road ways. Extra driving sessions are available for purchase as needed.) All Driver’s Education cars are equipped with an instructor side brake, extra mirrors and meet the requirements of the GA Department of Driver Services.
BTW instruction consists of three 2-hour sessions that are scheduled at the discretion of the student's assigned instructor based on instructor's and student's availability. BTW instruction is currently conducted from the Marietta Sixth Grade Academy located at 340 Aviation Rd., Marietta, 30060.
(Student's registration must be processed and paid in full prior to instructor assignment.)
Upon successful completion of the BTW instruction, student will receive a 6-hour Driver's Ed Certificate of Completion. Certificate will be sent to parent/guardian via email.
Refunds are not given after the start of the first driving session. Refunds that are issued will be assessed a $35 processing fee. Students must have a valid Georgia permit or license to begin the 6 hour driving portion of the class. Cancelled driving appointments result in lost instructional time and delay the assignment of the remaining students. Driving appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a $50 rescheduling fee. Student must have permit with them during all driving sessions. If student arrives to a driving session without their permit, the student will be turned away and will incur a $50 rescheduling fee.
