COVID safe protocols in place – masks are required at all times – the driving coach will be in the vehicle with you – the classroom setting will not be used, now online course material will be reviewed by each student several days before they arrive. Students will no longer be sharing cars or instructors which means we can reduce the course time per student and keep everyone safe. This is now a 3 hour program, 1 coach per student and each student still receives the same amount of driving and practice time as previous seasons. This program will be offered in the evenings 6 pm start time and weekends with 9AM and 1PM start times. Please dress for winter weather.
