Why should I take a Driver Education course?
Under Joshua’s Law (Senate Bill 226) the course is required for all 16-year-old drivers to obtain a Class D license. The State of Georgia strongly encourages all new drivers, not just teen drivers, to obtain high-quality driver training, such as is offered at TLDS. Under Georgia Law, an approved driver education course could entitle you to a 10% insurance premium reduction for 3 years for drivers under age 25. The parent of a minor taking an approved driver education course is eligible for a $150 tax credit from the State. (Please consult with your tax advisor.) Students successfully completing the TLDS driver education program develop the confidence, critical skills, and decision-making ability that are essential to safe operation of a motor vehicle.

- Classes are offered during the school holiday breaks and during the summer and run for four days. (Typically Monday – Thursday, but on some select breaks, they are Saturday – Tuesday). Please check the calendar for the upcoming class schedules. Seating is limited and we encourage you to reserve your first choice soon so you can be sure to have a seat in your preferred class. Please call the school at 678.494.2200, during the hours of 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm for more information or if you have questions.
- Our behind-the-wheel training encompasses in-town driving, highway driving, residential driving, rural and urban road driving, and a great deal of parallel parking, “quick stop”, and “back-and-park” practice. Each of these elements is important and will be tested by the State during road testing. Behind-The-Wheel-Training is accomplished on an individually scheduled basis and may be conducted during day, afternoon, evening, or weekend hours. Students should contact us at the school to schedule individual behind-the-wheel training. Students must have a valid learners permit before scheduling a behind the wheel training session.
