Learning to drive is an exciting time of anyone’s life, so of course you’ll have questions. Mr. D’s Driving Center has answers. Check out some of our most Frequently Asked Questions below, or give us a call at 903-984-3843 and we’ll answer any question you may have.
I can’t afford to pay the one-time fee all at once. Do you offer payment plans?
Absolutely. We understand completely and are happy to work with you to find a payment option that best fits your needs. Call us today at 903-984-3843 to see which payment plan works for you.
Can I pay over the phone?
We do not accept payments over the phone at this time.
Do I need to provide my own car?
No. Mr. D’s Driving Center operates a standardized fleet of well-maintained Chevrolet Impalas, so you don’t have to worry about providing your own car.
What paperwork do I need to complete to sign up for a course?
Paperwork varies by course. Check out the course descriptions to find a complete list of the forms to get started. You can also complete all necessary paperwork on-site.
I need to schedule a driving test for my teen, but the DMV isn’t available for weeks. Can I sign up for just the driving test?
Yes! We’re happy to accommodate you or your teen to get tested and on the road. Mr. D’s Driving Center is happy to schedule a driving test any time from daylight until dark six days a week. Call today to find a time that fits your busy schedule.
Something has come up, and I will miss one of my classes. Can I make up the absence? Will I be charged for it?
While Mr. D’s encourages prompt and regular attendance, we understand that emergencies happen. If you have to miss a class, let us know. Missing a classroom session does not incur a fee, but late cancellations and failure to attend a scheduled driving appointment will result in a $15 fee.
I want to take the driving course with my friends. Can we do the driving portion of the course together?
Of course. Mr. D’s understands that learning to drive should be a fun, memorable experience, and we’re happy to be a part of it.
Why do I need driver’s education? Can’t I teach my teen to drive?
“Even the best drivers among us often forget the exact rules of the road, and many people who do know them can have a difficult time communicating all of those rules to new drivers. At Mr. D’s Driving Center, we take the stress out of learning to drive by fostering an upbeat learning environment.
Our professional teachers and drivers will ensure that your teen learns the rules of the road and enjoys the learning process at the same time. At Mr. D’s, your teens will get the opportunity to drive with seasoned instructors who are trained to make sure that they get a complete education in safe driving techniques.”
What age do students take driver’s education?
Students may begin the classroom phase as early as age 14 or as late as age 18. Students who begin at 14, however, must wait until they reach age 15 to apply for a driving permit.
