Some people have complained that my voice mail is full at times. Let me explain. I am not able to answer the phone when I am on a drive.  I try to call people back between drives.  If you can text I can get back to you sooner and my voice mail will not fill up as fast.  I am going from one thing to another from 6 AM to 9 PM so my box fills up.  Sorry for that.  If I miss your call, please call back on the hour and I can take care of your needs.  Thanks for your understanding.

Make sure to also go to dol.wa.gov if the student does not have a Washington ID Card, or permit.  Get the confirmation # to me before going to the Department of Licensing so I can enter it into the database. Call Dan at 360-975-2799 for more information.

Top Gear Driving School is coming to Lyle for the Summer at the Lyle Activity Center.  Classes will begin on June 23.  There will be a parent/student orientation meeting on June 21 at 10 AM.  This class will be a Monday-Wednesday-Friday class from 10 to noon.  It will last for 5 weeks.  Drives will be scheduled before and after class, and on other days when available.

Old news!

Top Gear Driving School is now approved and authorized by the Department of Licensing to give the knowledge and driving(skills) tests.  As of December 31, 2012 the DOL in White Salmon and Goldendale will no longer give the knowledge test and the skills (driving) test.  Testing will now be done at Top Gear Driving School.  This will benefit patrons who previously had to  go to Goldendale, White Salmon or Vancouver for testing.

This service will be available not only for beginning drivers, but for anyone needing the testing. Testing will be available by appointment only until set times are discovered that will work for the community. Testing locations will not be able to take pictures, or issue a driver's license. It will be necessary to visit a Department of Licensing location  in White Salmon, Goldendale, or Vancouver.

** Very important!!!  Before you come to test, you must visit the Department of Licensing Website to get your Washington Driver's License number.
