Private Lessons Package of 5

Private lessons are scheduled one-on-one in our vehicles. We schedule 1-hour lessons and lessons can be scheduled one lesson per week. You will need to have a Learner's Permit or other motor vehicle licensure in order for us to provide you with private lessons on the city streets.

There are many reasons for private lessons: mature driver evaluations, additional lessons for inexperienced drivers, getting back into driving after a period of illness or convalescence.

Private lessons do not include any classroom theory or NM MVD required testing nor do we issue a Certificate of Completion for private driving lessons.


Road Test

The Road Test will be conducted in our vehicle on the city streets. 

Please bring current identification.  If you have a current NM State ID, that is all we will need to administer the road test.  A current, out-of-state ID or federally issued picture ID will need to be accompanied by your social security card.  If you do not have current identification, a certified copy of your birth certificate and your social security card will be required.

 Once scheduled, you must notify us by phone, by close of business the day before your appointment if you wish to cancel and receive a refund, or reschedule.  (Monday - Saturday, 10am-3pm)

Same day cancellations or “No Shows” are non-refundable.  Same day rescheduling will incur a $15.00 rescheduling fee payable at the time of rescheduling.

Written and Road Tests

The appointment time you schedule will be for the Road Test.  You can take the written exam once you have completed the road test.
