Colorado Springs Behind the Wheel Driving Lessons
Do you need to learn to drive?
Learn to drive with one of our state approved and regulated, patient, friendly, instructors. Each lesson is done in one of our dual controlled cars and each lesson is 2 hours long. We charge $65 per hour and teach everything from first learning how to move a car to parallel parking and highway driving. We will also make sure that you are prepared and feel confident if you also plan on taking the driver’s license test.

Why Private Lessons?
Since 2002, our instructors have trained 100k+ new drivers with personalized instruction and real-world practice. Many people in Colorado Springs, though, get their license without ever getting private lessons—so why is it so important? There are many reasons that all new Colorado Springs drivers should take private lessons before getting their license. Here are just a few.
You May Save Money on Auto Insurance
Insurance companies are understandably cautious about insuring new drivers. Colorado Springs teens who take private lessons, however, can save hundreds of dollars on insurance. Insurance companies know that a teenager who has been properly trained, is much more likely to be a responsible driver. This means lower insurance premiums and more money for college or for gas. Some adults may even qualify for insurance discounts.
Note: Most insurance companies offer lower premiums for teens who take driver’s ed, not all.
You’ll Get to Drive Sooner
Colorado law currently allows for drivers as young as 14½ to begin classroom lessons, and driving lessons at 15. This means they can have their permit at 15 and full driver’s license at 16. This is only possible, though, if a new Colorado Springs driver is enrolled in private lessons like those offered by American Driving Academy.
You’ll Be a Better Driver
Becoming a driver is easy; becoming a good driver is not. Too often, people have to learn the importance of safe driving the hard way. Our friendly, experienced driving instructors will ensure that you or you will have the skills necessary to be a safe, responsible driver for life.
