FAQ - Freqently Asked Questions
How do I start behind-the-wheel lessons?

First, you’ll need to get a valid learner’s permit issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.   
You must be at least 15 1/2 years of age to get a learner's permit.

If you’re under 18, you’ll also need to complete 36 hours of a State Approved Driver’s Education
program.  This is an "in-classroom" course.  Check with your local high school or DMV for approved
driver's education course program.  The Virginia Association of Driver Education and Traffic Safety
(VADETS) offers a state-approved course online. Go to or call (804) 512-0101.

What does it cost?

For those Under 18 years of age, the cost for the required behind-the-wheel lessons is $265.  To obtain
your license in the State of Virginia if you are under 18 years of age, you are required to complete
a 36-
hour driver education course prior to taking the required 14 behind the wheel lessons program.  The
behind-the-wheel lessons program consists of
7 fifty-minute sessions of driving with an instructor and
7 fifty-minute sessions of observing another student drive
.  The road skills test is administered by the
driving school which provided the behind-the-wheel lessons.

For adults 18 years and older, the cost is $
55 per hour.  In the State of Virginia, if you are 18 years and
lder, behind-the-wheel lessons are not  required unless you have failed the Road Skills Test given by
the Virginia DMV three times. If you failed the Road Skills Test 3 times you will need to take 14 one-hour
sessions from a DMV certified driving school before retaking the test.
 The adult in-vehicle recertification
course is $635.

Rather than taking the road skills test at the DMV, adults, 18 years and older, have the option to take a
36-hour driver education course and the behind-the-wheel lessons and final road skills test with a
commercial driving school.  Go Driving does not currently offer the 36-hour driver education course. The
14 behind-the-wheel lessons program is $265.

Who do I pay and what do you accept?

We accept cash, credit card, check, or money order made payable to Go Driving.  Payment is given to
the instructor at lesson start.

Does the driving instructor pick up and drop off?

Yes, our instructors drop off and pick up students for lessons from their home, school, or work within
Stafford County and the city of Fredericksburg at no additional cost.

Where's the Go Driving office located?

The business office is located in Stafford, Virginia.  Because Go Driving only provides behind-the-wheel
lessons, all business is conducted directly with our instructors in their mobile office.
