Who can take the road test at AA Academy of Action Driving School?
The only students eligible to take the road test with us are students that have completed the 30-hour classroom and 6 hours of behind the wheel training at AA ACADEMY OF ACTION DRIVING SCHOOL. The State of Georgia does not allow us to test any students that have not gone through the training at our school.
Can I be late for Defensive Driving or Risk Reduction?
No student can attend class after class begins. The doors will lock PROMPTLY at the designated time of class. For example, if class begins at 6:30PM, this means the DOORS LOCK at 6:30PM and no one may enter after this time. Please be sure to plan your route to the school and leave early enough to get here early for class. Otherwise, you WILL be locked out, and may or may not be eligible to reschedule class.
Why should I take the road test with AA Academy of Action Driving School?
Taking the test with us offers the student the opportunity to potentially test with the instructor in which he or she did behind the wheel training. Also, we use taller cones than the DDS, giving the student a better sense of where they are going while performing parallel parking, etc. Lastly, we stick to the schedule, so if you sign up for a 10AM appointment, that is when you will meet the road test instructor to perform your road test. There is NO WAITING for the next available slot.
When should I sign up for the road test?
When you are 16 years of age with a learner's permit that you have had for at least a year and a day. When you call to schedule your appointment, please note that we are required to send in your child's information A WEEK in advance to the DDS. This means YOU MUST schedule 1 1/2 to 2 WEEKS in advance to get your child a slot on the road test schedule.
Why should I take the 30-hour classroom in class rather than online?
The online Driver's Education course DOES NOT include the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program (ADAP) which is required for students under the age of 17 to get their license. The online course is also not accepted by your insurance company for an insurance reduction of up to 10% off. They are required to give you this insurance reduction if you take the 30-hour classroom in class. You will also not receive the $150 adjusted income state tax credit by taking the virtual Driver's Education course.
What is the difference between Defensive Driving and Driver's Education?
Driver's Education is for NEW teen drivers' seeking to get their driver's license. Sometimes, bioptics patients may need to take the class to ensure they are in good condition to continue driving or drive with the bioptics lens. In Driver's Education, you will essentially learn the rules to driving. Defensive Driving is a class for more experienced drivers that need to take the class for minor charges such as speeding or another traffic violation. They may be taking the class as a requirement or to reduce insurance rates or points on their license. This class is a more in-depth look at what happens when driving laws are broken.
