**Important:  Classes are now held in person at 155 SW First Street in Stevenson unless there is an outbreak of Covid 19.  In this case classes will move to online via Zoom for the time period needed.  Students get more out of the classes when taught in person.    I teach 2 classes per week.  One on Monday and Wednesday from 4-6 PM.  The other on Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8 PM. Parent/Student Orientations will be taught  in person in the classroom on the Saturday prior to the class start date at 10AM. 

Drive times can be scheduled if a student has a current permit. Permits can be applied for online at, or at the Department of Licensing Office.  Students will need a Washington ID Number first which can also be applied for online.  This number must be given to Dan before applying for the permit. It must be entered into the database that the student is registered in the class. Please take care of this before going to the Department of Licensing Office.  There are instructions below on how to get the Washington ID Number and the permit.  You can print off the permit and the plastic one will be sent via USPS in the mail.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.  Be safe and well.

PLEASE NOTE: Some classes may have changed in the schedule  in order to accommodate school holidays and time off needed by instructor.  In addition, classes will generally not be taught during public school holidays and vacations.  However, driving instruction and testing may be scheduled as instructor's time permits. 

Important:  Each student needs a Washington ID Number which becomes their driver's license number.  If your student does not have a Washington ID Number you can access it at  Click on Signup and the scroll down to DOL Preapply,  Complete as required.  The number beginning with WDL is the number that needs to be entered into the database.  Get that number to Dan so he can enter it into the database.

Essential:  It is very important to realize that Washington State requires students to complete courses within the 15 week time limit.  They do not allow sports, or other activities to keep students from completing.  In addition, students can only miss 3 classes.  Classes must be made up at a time when instructor is teaching the missed lesson.  If students do not complete during the 15 week time
period, they will be required to retake the course at a $200. course retake fee. 

Note:  We begin new classes nearly every 3 weeks. For classes offered later than those listed on the chart you can go to  Click on drivetimes on the left side.  This will allow you to plan ahead  Please note that class times not listed on the chart may change since some schools have not put out their school calendars for the 2021-2022 school year.  

Sign up today!

Please note** The Lyle location has been closed!!  The Department of Licensing required us to close this location.  It will not be reopening.

NOTE:  If for some reason there is something you dislike about the class, please make Dan aware of your concerns.  We are always looking for ways to improve our school.  We feel we have the very best class available, and for a reasonable price.  Since word of mouth is our best advertising, if you would like to share  how you have been pleased with the course we would very much welcome your comments on our Top Gear Driving School Facebook Page, Yelp, Google, our website and any other places that you may be aware.  As you are probably aware, most people who are dissatisfied will not  share their concerns with the business.  However, they will share their dissatisfaction with at least 10 people including the pages mentioned above.  Please Remember!  Our door is always open to those whom we serve!
