- American Driving Academy tests both our students, as well as those that were not our students.
- You are able to use our cars, while taking the test with us.
- We are able to test you if you have an interlock device installed in your vehicle.
- You must have a Colorado instruction permit to take the test if you are over 18 years of age. You may test on a valid out of state instruction permit or a Colorado instruction permit if you are under 18 years of age.
- The drive test takes about 10-15 minutes, with another 15 to 20 minutes to complete the paperwork.
- The certificate showing you passed the test is good for up to 60 days.
- You may test with us up to 4 times, after that you are required to test at a DMV office.
- You may only take one driving test per day, regardless of where you took the test.
- If you are under 18 years of age, you will be required to give your 50 hour log sheet to the DMV office when you get your license.
- If you are under 16 and ½ years of age, you will be required to give your 6 hour certificate of completion from your driving instructor to the DMV office when you get your license.
