Good News!!  Top Gear Driving School has made an agreement with Lyle School District to hold classes at the Lyle Activity Center spring, summer and fall.  The district plans to give school credit for passing driver's ed.  Wishram also gives credit.  We are hoping this will give more students an opportunity to take driver's ed without the travel time to Stevenson.  Classes will also be taught in at the same time by our instructor in Stevenson.  Classes will be open to any youth age 15 to 18 whether in public, private, or home schooled.  Classes will be taught from 4 to 6 PM.  Days of the week and starting and ending dates to be determined.

New!!  We will be starting a new class in Lyle on Monday.  The parent/student orientation is this Saturday at the Lyle Activity Center where the classes will also be held.  The orientation and classes will be held from 10 AM until noon.  Classes will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Drives will be scheduled before and after classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  In addition, there will be drives scheduled in Lyle on some Saturdays.  See the calendar for more details.  This class already has 35 students so it is closed for more enrollment.

New!!  Because of excessive snow days the schools in the gorge are getting out a week later.  Therefore, the Lyle class will begin June 26th which is a week later than originally schedule.  The parent/student orientation will be held at the Lyle Activity Center at 10 AM on June 24th.  Classes will be held from 10 AM until noon on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Drives will be held after classes and on Saturdays.  Drives will be available in Lyle and Stevenson.


New!  2/9/17  I will be holding class tonight.  I have 2 students who plan to attend.  I will also be doing drives for those who can come.


New!!  2/9/17  I am trying to make a decision concerning drives and class tonight.  I know that schools have closed due to weather and roads.  I am able to get to my office without any problem.  I dug my driveway out yesterday and was out early this morning.  If students want to do drives I am willing since I have studs.  Please call or text to let me know your thoughts.  There will be no penalty if you decide not to do the drive.


New!!  2/8/17  There will be no drives or classes today because of weather and road conditions.  Please be safe and warm.


New!!  2/7/17 It is still not snowing in Stevenson and NOAA indicates that the snow and ice will not be accumulating so I plan to have class 13 for those who can make it.  The next time class 13 will be taught is 3/6/17 from 4-6 PM providing the weather cooperates. 


New!!  2/7/17  I heard that White Salmon Schools are closed early.  To my knowledge Stevenson has not closed.  It is now 1 PM.  As of now it is not snowing in Stevenson so I do plan to hold class tonight for lesson 13 from 6 to 8 PM.  If things change I will update.


New!! 2/4/17  Because of slick roads and continuing freezing rain I am canceling drives and the parent/student orientation for today.  Parents and students will have the orientation at the first part of class #1 this Thursday, 2/9/17 at 6 PM.  Parents should plan to attend for the first hour of class.  If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


New!!  2/3/17  I plan to do drives today since I have studded snow tires and we are able to get around just fine in spite of the snow.  If you feel uncomfortable you can cancel without a penalty.  I want my drivers to feel comfortable and not stressed over the snow and slick roads.


New!!  1/23/17  I have done some updates to the calendar as far as classes are concerned.  The classes that were scheduled have been changed to the appropriate lesson.  For those needing lesson 15 I have scheduled it for this Friday at 4 PM.  Please check the calendar for class changes and scheduling drives.  Let's not be praying for more snow.  If you want a blizzard you can go to DQ, or the mountains.


New!!  1/22/17  Yes!!!  We will resume classes and drives tomorrow, 1/23/17.  Those who were supposed to have class #1 last Wednesday will be taught class #1 Tomorrow at 4 PM.  Those who missed other classes because of the storm and road conditions will receive the next class in sequence as scheduled on the calendar.  I will be adjusting the schedule soon so that you can see when your missed classes will be taught.  Please take a look at the calendar.  It will be updated soon.  Drives will also continue sequentially.  It appears that the weather is going to be improved so we can continue.  I am personally ready.  I have missed teaching and spending time with my students. 


New!!  1/21/17  Saturday. The roads are still not able to be used for drives here so there will be no drives today. Stevenson is still socked in with ice.  There are still a lot of tree limbs and other storm related stuff in the roads. 


New!! 1/20/17 We finally have power at my office, but not at my home.  There are still a lot of people who can't get out.  All drives and classes are cancelled for today and tomorrow.  Drives are impossible at the moment.  Roads are too unsafe for new drivers.  Sorry for the inconvenience, but I have no control over the weather and cleanup.  For those who have not been to Stevenson it is like a war zone.  It will take a while to clean it up.  Hopefully, next week we can resume classes.  As long as we have power and internet I can post on here.  There is a snow storm predicted.  If that happens then it could complicate things.


New!!  1/18/17 All drives and classes are cancelled for today.  Until the weather guru decides to change the forecast so the roads can thaw and reopen, we will not be able to get out on the roads again.  Highway I84 and 14 are both closed on for miles.  Power outages and trees across the roads and not to mention trucks jackknifed and other vehicles crashed are causing road blocks due to freezing rain.  Stay home and keep warm.  Classes will resume as soon as conditions are safe to be driving again.


New!! UPDATE 1/17/17 CLASS IS CANCELLED DUE TO IN-CLIMATE WEATHER.  Stay safe and warm.


New!!  1/17/17  I am able to get to my office and back home without any problems at this point.  I would like to hold class tonight if anyone can make it.  Please contact me so I can get an idea of who might be coming. Do not feel obligated if you feel it would be unsafe.  Because of circumstances we can work with the 3 missed days.  We just need to document why a student needed to miss class.  Drives are also a challenge as we are not able to accomplish what we generally do. An allowance will be made on these drives because we keep needing to cancel for reasons beyond our control. If you feel uncomfortable with the conditions, we can reschedule.   Be safe and warm.


New!!   1/12/17  Classes and drives will resume today.  Tonight is lesson 5. I have rescheduled classes so you can go to the drive times calendar to find when they are scheduled.  I am hoping that they will work out for students.  I did schedule lesson 13 for tomorrow at 4 and lesson 14 for Martin Luther King Day at 4 with lesson 15 for the following Friday 1/20/17 at 4.  If you are not able to attend as scheduled you can make classes up when a future class is scheduled for the lesson you need.  Hopefully, we are at the end of the snow for a while.


New!! 1/11/17.  Unless weather conditions for some reason change from what I am seeing, classes and drives will resume tomorrow.  We do have some packed snow on some of the roads.  However, I do have studded snow tires on the driver's ed car.  We are not slipping at all so I feel comfortable doing the drives.  I will be contacting students who need lessons 13, 14 and 15 to determine when to schedule those classes.  One option is to do those classes on Martin Luther King Holiday and a couple of Fridays at 4 PM.  If you would like to share your thoughts and feelings you may either call me, text me, or email me asap so we can get these on the calendar. 


New!!  1/11/17  I have been shoveling 3 feet of snow off my roof.  I put a poll on my last post and only had 2 parents weigh in so that must mean that there are no others wanting to have classes tonight.  Therefore, there will be no classes tonight.  My plan is to begin holding classes tomorrow night.  We will come up with a plan to complete soon.


New!!  1/11/17  Just out of curiosity, is it possible for any of you to come today?  I have noticed that the roads are still bad and school is cancelled all around.  I can get to my office and have been able, but I am concerned for your safety.  If anyone would like to weigh in you can.  If there are at least 2 students per class I would be glad to teach tonight.  I am planning to teach tomorrow night.  If it starts to rain and warm up we should be able to resume classes.  Please email me, call me, or text me asap so I can make plans.


New!!  1/10/17 No drives of classes again today.  Hopefully, we can resume tomorrow.


New!!  Regretfully, I have decided to cancel class for tonight.  I am hoping that the weather will cooperate so we can continue our classes.  If you would like to you can let me know how the roads are where you live so we can decide when we can resume classes again.  I plan to be able to get to my office today, but I need to know whether my students are able to come.


New!! 1/7/16. I am cancelling all drives today due to inclimate weather conditions. Stay warm and safe. Call to reschedule your drive.

New!! 1/3/16. I plan to hold class again tonight.  If you are unable to attend you can make up the class on 1/25/17 at 4 PM.  I realize the roads may be difficult for some.  Please be safe.


New!!  1/2/17 I was just out on the roads.  Highways 14 and 84 are both clear.   I have decided WE WILL HOLD CLASS TONIGHT.  I hope you can all make it.  If not, plan to make it up.  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Celebration.  I am looking forward to moving forward with classes and drives now.


New!!  We can finally do drives again.  Tomorrow morning, 12/19/16, we will do drives again.  There have been some cancellations so if you are ready to schedule drives you may.  I also have some drive times available after Christmas.


New!!  12/16/16  The roads are still covered with packed snow.  We will not have drives today or Saturday the 17th.  They should be ready for drives by Tuesday since there is not much snow predicted and the temperatures are getting warmer.  I have added some days for drives after Christmas.  Take a look and get some drive set up if your are able.  Give me a call. 


NEW!! 12/15/16 BECAUSE OF UNSAFE ROAD CONDITIONS THERE WILL NOT BE DRIVES OR CLASS TONIGHT!!  HAVE A SAFE AND ENJOYABLE HOLIDAY!!  I WILL PUT UPDATES ON CONCERNING DRIVING SCHEDULES.  WE WILL SCHEDULE MAKE-UP CLASSES AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR.


NEW!! BECAUSE OF UNSAFE ROAD CONDITIONS I HAVE DECIDED TO CANCEL CLASSES TONIGHT, 12/14/16.  LESSON 11 WILL BE HELD 1/2/17.  ENJOY YOUR CHRISTMAS BREAK.  I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED ON FUTURE DRIVES ACCORDING TO ROAD CONDITIONS.

New!!  Many of you may not be aware that there is a new 40 question Department Of Licensing knowledge test.  It is much more difficult to pass.  In the past month I have seen many more people fail this test.  Some have needed to retake the test at least once.  In the past, people have said that they did not study prior to coming and were able to pass.  This is not the case anymore.  Just reading the book once will not be enough.  Just a word to the wise, please come prepared to pass.  There are also videos you can watch so you can learn what you will be tested on with the drive (skills) test.

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.
