Our staff! Our programs! Our commitment to safety!
From our front desk team to our drive instructors and examiners, everyone is dedicated, committed and thoroughly trained.
We have a more engaging 30-hour class (click here to learn more) which is constantly being updated with the newest information, videos and scientific research to help students understand the importance of what they’re doing as well as the best way to do it. Our Behind-the-Wheel program is heads and tails above the competition.

Yes, Community Driving School offers a 6-hour behind-the-wheel instruction as a part of our specified programs or as a separate “Behind-The-Wheel” training course. We also offer internet instruction and the 6-hour behind-the-wheel instruction, but the 6-hour behind-the-wheel instruction can be offered separately from the complete course.
Yes, due to insurance and state regulations, we have to teach in one of our company-owned vehicles which are equipped with passenger side brakes and mirrors for the certified instructor to ensure safety in all situations.
We’re not able to allow parents to ride along because of insurance regulations and company policy.
The individual must be of age 15 years – 15 years and 6 months. The permit is valid for 3 years after issuance. You must have: – A completed Affidavit of Liability Guardianship (DR2460).
– A completed Affidavit of Completion of a Driver Education Classroom Course indicating you have completed and passed the classroom portion of a state-approved driver education course within 6 months prior to applying for your instruction permit. (back of the DR2460)

Minors under age 18 must hold an instruction permit for at least twelve months and be 16 years old before they are eligible to take a driving test. Minors are given credit for any time they held a permit in this or any other state if they show the permit documentation.
Any minor issued a driver’s education permit (the permit for minors 15 years up to 15/6 months) on or after 04/23/2007, must complete behind-the-wheel training prior to applying for their driver’s license. They may complete either 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training with a driving instructor from an approved school or 12 hours of behind-the-wheel training with their parent, guardian or alternate permit supervisor if there is no approved school offering at least 20 hours of behind-the-wheel training per week located within 30 miles of the permit holder’s residence.
Minors under 18 must also submit a written log showing at least 50 hours of drive time experience at the time they apply for their Driver’s License. Ten of those 50 hours must have been driven at night. For complete information about the Log Sheet and restrictions for drivers under 17 years of age, see the “Driver Time Log Sheet” (DR 2324)”.
The 30-hour class is broken down into four individual days. The days are Defensive Driving, Traffic Law, Basic and Advanced Maneuvers, and Understanding Your Vehicle.
Each day stands alone, so a student can take them in ANY order they like. The days can be taken together over two weekends during the school year, or over a school break (like Spring Break). They can be taken over four consecutive days. A student can even spread the class out over six months, but it must be completed within six months.
The student does NOT need to schedule the class. Currently all the classes are being taught over Zoom and those Zoom links are loaded onto their student profile. On the day a given class is being taught (for example, Defensive Driving) the student logs in to their student profile and clicks on the Zoom link. The instructor then takes roll and gives them credit for the class.
The Zoom class still uses a live teacher. Students may ask questions and engage in conversation with the instructor. The Zoom class requires a student to be in the class for the full day (8:30 am to 4:30 pm) to receive credit for that class.
The Self-Paced class does not have a live teacher. A student can log into the class and work on the course for any amount of time – a few minutes to several hours. The student controls their schedule. Colorado state law requires completion of the course within six months of starting.
