Driver's Training for TEENS

South Bay Driving School has been teaching teens to drive for over 25 years. Our instructors are friendly, experienced and know the most up-to-date methods of driving and safety techniques.

Driving lessons with South Bay Driving School are fun, comfortable and easy.

Driving lessons put to practice what you studied in drivers education. Private driving lessons also give you personal attention in order for you to improve your driving skills.

Our instructors are licensed, trained professionals. Apart from their experience, they are also fun and friendly people. The Team at South Bay Driving School are all about safe driving, and help students understand the rules of the road.

Our drivers training and behind-the-wheel lessons lead to the same goal as our online drivers ed program — to get you ready for what the DMV tests on, and most importantly, building safe behind-the-wheel driving skills to ensure you are ready.

At the end of your last driving lesson, you’ll be given a final driving test to examine your abilities behind the wheel.

South Bay Driving School aim to provide the best driving experience. Come and see why we are the best at what we do!

Driver Training Information

The minimum requirement set by the Department of Motor Vehicles for a Driver’s Training (behind-the-wheel) course is six-hours of training. We pick up and drop off our students for most lessons. (Pickup can be at home, school, practice, or any place arranged in advance; please have a working [turned on] cell phone with you if your pick up is not at home).

Driver Training is accomplished in a vehicle with a licensed instructor. Six hours of training with a licensed instructor in a public or private driving school are required by law. It takes 3 days, (2 hours per day) to complete. You may spread out the lessons if you like, practicing between lessons is important. A parent is required to practice at least 50 hrs with their teen before attempting the drive test. Driver Training can be taken any day of the week with an appointment and the training covers BASIC DRIVING SKILLS. Once these skills are mastered and the instructor feels the student can do so safely, freeway and parallel parking may be covered. It is up to the instructor to decide if the student is ready without interfering with learning and practicing basic driving skills (feel free to request freeway or parallel parking, and our instructor will make every effort to comply).
