How do I obtain my learner's permit?
You should study the driver's manual and then go to the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) to take the permit test. No appointment is needed, but you must arrive at least 1 hour+ before closing. Bring your birth certificate and Social Security card. Driving schools cannot give permit exams, you must go to the RMV. We strongly recommend that you pay RMV licensing fees ($70) while you're at the RMV for your permit. This will save you time and hassles later!
What types of cars do you have?
Our fleet consists of a variety of low-mileage vehicles including hybrids and all-wheel drive SUV's, giving our students experience with a range of different vehicles and thus graduating better-prepared for real-world driving. Although our motto is "safety first", we also aim to put "fun" back into driver education with cars like our Ford Mustang and Subaru XV Crosstrek. We're extremely diligent about maintenance, which is performed by ASE master technicians. All cars are IIHS top safety picks or NHSTA 5-star rated, and equipped with dual controls, ABS, front and side-curtain airbags, and quality name-brand tires.
Do you have the optional Saturday RMV road tests?
Yes, we offer the Saturday road test approximately 2 to 3 times per month at our Shrewsbury Street, Boylston location. Our sponsorship fee is the lowest in the area and includes a $20 "Saturday convenience fee" that we pay to the RMV for each applicant (in addition to what you pay the RMV directly). Please pre-pay the road test sponsorship fee to us 3 weeks in advance. The RMV license processing fee ($50) and appointment fee ($20) are separate, not included in our sponsorship fee, and paid by you directly to the RMV. Please note that you CANNOT schedule a road test at the RMV and another one with us as a "backup", or vice versa, the RMV will NOT allow it!
Do you guarantee that I'll pass ? Although we have a high passing rate, your chances are influenced by factors beyond our control, such as the quality and quantity of your practice at home, and how well you function under pressure. Therefore, we are confident of a positive result but cannot guarantee it.
How long will it take to get into a road test with you? You must finish all requirements and give us a check for $15 made out to "MASS DOT" 21 days in advance. Don't forget to pay the separate RMV appointment and licensing fees ($70 total) directly to the RMV at least 36 hours before the road test by calling 857-368-8000 or visiting any RMV branch (cannot be paid online).
How do I schedule a Saturday road test? DONOT call the RMV! We will do this for you. Saturday road tests are scheduled using a completely different system. Just let us know when you would like to take it, and make sure that you have all requirements (including payments) done at least 3 weeks in advance. Also, if you need to cancel a Saturday road test, we must hear from you AT LEAST 8 days in advance to avoid unnecessary RMV fees.
