**IMPORTANT!!! In order to sign up for a class you must contact Dan to get on the list. You must also have a Washington State ID number which will become the student's driver's license number. Click on the link below. Then fill in the required information. Make sure to write down the name and password you enter as you will need this to get back into the database to complete the process. There will be a link sent to your email. Click on the link and complete. I will need the number that begins with WDL so I can enter the student's number into the database. (You can text this information, or send it to me in the mail, or email.) This will become the student's Permit and Driver's License number. (Note! This is not the Confirmation Number. Go to the bottom of the page and click on continue.) You can go to the Department of Licensing and get the student's permit 10 days prior to the class start date. If the student is 151/2 they can get the permit by passing the Department of Licensing knowledge test which administer at my office. Do not go to the DOL without getting the Driver's License Number to me. You can also apply for the permit online in the same way as you applied for the Washington ID Number. The only difference is that the student will not have a picture on their permit. You must pay via credit card and print off the permit on your printer.
New drivers can Pre-Apply on line @ DOL Pre-Apply
The cost of our Driver's Education classes is $475. in Stevenson. This rate is at least $100. less than our closest competitor in Camas and Vancouver.
The cost for Adult classes is $80. which pays for the initial 2 one hour classes. The first hour is spent partly in the classroom, and partly in the car evaluating the needs of the student driver. Additional lessons are $40. per 1 hour lesson. Lessons are added according to need and ability in consultation with student and instructor.
All students are required to have a valid permit before any lessons in the car are given. If a permit is needed, students can take the Department of Licensing knowledge test at our location if they are at least 151/2. When the student is ready and capable, the driving test (skills) will be given at our location.
The costs of each test at the present time are:
Knowledge Test- $25. each time given.
Skills Test (Driving) $35. each time given.
Use of Traffic Safety Education car for driving test (skills) purposes is $60.
These prices are also less than our competition in Camas.
It is best to call or text for an appointment. Our schedule changes each week. If you just show up, I may not be able to get you in since I have other customers who are already scheduled. Save a trip and call ahead.
Realize that I am not able to answer the phone in the driver's education vehicle. However, I can receive a text and get back to you when I return to my office. Although texting is not my preferred method of contact, it is often the best. I try my best to get back to patrons as quickly as I am able.
