How to Open a Driving School


Visitors: 342

If you love driving all kinds of motor vehicles and would like to teach others to love driving too, it's time you opened up your own driving school.

Different states in the United States have different processes for setting up driving schools. A typical process to be followed in order to set up a driving school goes something like this.

First, fill out a driver training school application form. Pay a $200 application fee.

You'll have to provide a number of proofs. One is proof that you have a $2,500 bond, proof that you've got insurance in the amount of $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000 and lastly, a schedule of maximum fees for instruction.

You"ll then have to register the name of your school with the Secretary of State Corporation Division and provide them with your registry number. Once that's done, provide a list of all the driving instructors and vehicles that'll be used by your school to train would-be drivers.

You'll also have you make sure that all your vehicles use the dual controls that conform to the standards set by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Most states issue driving school licenses that lapse on the last day (December 31st) of every year and have to be renewed. To renew your license, you'll have to fill out another application form, attach a proof of insurance and pay up an application fee (remember the earlier comment about coughing up dough?).

Once all these have been processed your new license will be mailed to you.

Once you've got all this done and have a valid license in your hand, it's time to get rolling. You're now authorized to provide classroom as well as behind the wheel instruction to students in order to teach them to drive safely on the streets.

With a Commercial Driver Training School License, the vehicles that you can teach include cars, trucks, motor homes, and motorcycles.

Teach your students well. Remember, the skills you teach them now can one day save their lives as well as the lives of other innocent people.
