Frequently Asked Questions...
Can I register for classes or road tests online?
Yes! We now have the capability on our website for you to register for Session 1 & 2 Classes, as well as road skills tests.
How old do I have to be to start taking drivers education classes?
You must be at least 14 years and 8 months old at the start of Segment I class. (State Law)
Do I need to bring anything with me the first day of Segment 1 or Segment 2 class?
Segment 1 Class: You will need to bring you birth certificate (can be a copy) or your passport to confirm your name and age, the completed contract, Behind-The-Wheel agreement, and registration forms signed by both the student and parent (if not already on file).
Segment 2 Class: You will need to bring your Level 1 License; Driving Log with 30 hrs of logged drive time recorded, with at least 2 of night driving; and Seg 2 contract filled out and signed by both the student and parent.
What if I miss a class from a Segment 1 or Segment 2 session?
Segment 1 program: The state requires 24 hrs of classroom instruction in Segment 1. Students may miss up to two days of Segment 1 class. However, they MUST make-up any time they miss. This includes if they are late to class. All make-ups must be done on the two scheduled make-up days that follow each Segment 1 class. If a student misses more than two days of class during Segment 1, they will be required to repeat the entire class.
Segment 2 program: The state requires 6 hrs of classroom instruction for Segment 2. Students may only miss one day of the Sgement 1 Class. If a student misses a day, they will have to make that time up in a following session before a certificate of completion can be issued. Because there are limited spots available for make up students, students will need to sign up ASAP by contacting 734-455-8230 and speaking to ADA's staff. The state mandates the completion of Segment 2 within three weeks of class.
When am I eligible to take Segment 2?
Under state law, a student must be under 18 and must have had their Level 1 license for at least 90 days. They must also have 30 hours of driving logged, and at least two of those hours must be night driving.
How long must I drive on my Level 1 License before I can take the road test?
You must hold your Level I License for at least 180 days, complete the Segment 2 program, and have 50 hrs of logged drive time (10 hrs of the 50 being night-time driving) before you can take the road test.
