BEHIND-THE-WHEEL
driver's ed for teens

For students who completed a class program somewhere else and would like to get their license before they are 18 years old.

If you took Drivers Ed in High School or at another Driver’s Education Center, you may be looking for the required behind-the-wheel driver training in order to get your license before you are 18 years old.

You need to prove that you passed a classroom program at another facility by providing us with a copy of your transcript from the said facility and your grade must be a passing grade for drivers ed.

Once we have your classroom records on hand, you can choose our Silver or Gold driving program at one of our Teen Driving Schools to complete the behind-the-wheel requirement for your license.

A Driver’s Education course is a structured program that provides essential knowledge and practical skills necessary for safe and responsible driving. If you’re a teen new driver in Illinois, you are required to take a Driver’s Education course. It is a mandatory step in the process of obtaining your driver’s license. MyDrive Academy, your chosen driving school, will offer this course to equip you with a fundamental understanding of traffic laws, road safety, and proper driving techniques, ensuring you are well-prepared to become a responsible and informed driver.

The Learner’s Permit is a provisional driving credential that allows you to practice driving under the supervision of a licensed adult. In Chicago, you can apply for your Learner’s Permit when you are 15 years old. MyDrive Academy, your driving school, will guide you through the application process and help you prepare for the written permit test, which is a part of the requirement to obtain your Learner’s Permit. Once you have your Learner’s Permit, you can begin practicing your driving skills with a licensed adult in the car.

MyDrive Academy will assist you in gathering these documents and completing the necessary forms to make the application process as smooth as possible.

Complete your Driver’s Ed: Our Driver’s Education Course will cover essential information about traffic laws, road signs, and safe driving practices to help you pass the written test.

Should you need additional practice, we offer in-class and online permit test preparation courses as well. 

Practice Tests: MyDrive Academy may also provide practice tests that mimic the format of the actual written test. Taking these practice tests will help you get familiar with the types of questions you can expect.

Ask Questions: Don’t hesitate to ask questions during your Driver’s Education course if there’s something you don’t understand. Your instructors at MyDrive Academy are there to help clarify any doubts you may have.

Review and Revise: Periodically review the material you’ve learned to ensure you retain the information.

 

By combining these strategies and utilizing the resources provided by MyDrive Academy, you’ll be well-prepared to pass the written permit test and take your next step toward getting your driver’s license.

 

In Illinois, if you’re a 15-year-old new driver, you typically need to complete a minimum of 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training with a certified instructor as part of your driver’s education requirement. This training is usually provided by a professional driving school like MyDrive Academy. These hours with a certified instructor are in addition to the 50 hours of supervised driving with a licensed adult that you need to complete while holding your Learner’s Permit.

MyDrive Academy will ensure you receive the necessary behind-the-wheel training to develop your driving skills and knowledge, helping you become a safe and responsible driver.

During the road test in Chicago, as a teen new driver, you should expect an assessment of your driving skills and ability to follow traffic laws and safety regulations. Here’s what to anticipate and how MyDrive Academy can help you prepare:

 

Vehicle Inspection: The examiner may start by asking you to demonstrate your knowledge of basic vehicle safety and maintenance by performing a vehicle inspection. Ensure the vehicle you use for the test is in good working condition.

 

Driving Skills: You will be evaluated on various driving skills, such as turning, changing lanes, merging onto highways, parallel parking, three-point turns, and obeying traffic signs and signals.

 

Traffic Maneuvers: The road test will likely include navigating through real traffic situations, including intersections, pedestrian crossings, and residential areas. You’ll need to demonstrate safe and responsible driving practices.

 

Communication: Effective communication with other drivers through the use of turn signals, mirrors, and appropriate hand signals, if necessary, is essential.

 

Confidence and Composure: Maintain composure, stay focused, and drive confidently during the test.

 

To prepare for the road test, MyDrive Academy can provide you with comprehensive training and practice sessions. Our experienced instructors will guide you through the specific skills and maneuvers you’ll be tested on. Additionally, MyDrive Academy can offer you one of our well-maintained vehicles to use for the test itself, ensuring you’re comfortable and familiar with the vehicle you’ll be driving.

 

By practicing with MyDrive Academy and following their guidance, you’ll be well-prepared to demonstrate your driving skills and pass the road test with confidence.

Ramón Muñoz
Student’s Parent
“I believe MyDrive Academy’s instructors helped my son with a lot of his anxiety about driving. He was very hesitant before about getting behind the wheel. But soon after he enrolled with MyDrive Academy, he felt confident, he became a safe driver, and extra cautious on the road. That really calms my nerves knowing that my son is out there driving safely thanks to MyDrive Academy!”
