Drivers Education Programs

Among the Best Driving Schools in Santa Monica

Online Driver's Education Program

Route 66 Driving School provides students with instructional driving classes at their own convenience - one of the many reasons why we've become one of the best driving schools in Santa Monica. The online drivers ed course allows students to move at their own place, carefully reviewing video lessons and answering quiz questions. This approach lets students work through areas they need help with and better prepares them for behind the wheel driving instruction. Research suggests that online driving lessons are not only as effective as class room courses, but also help students stay focused on the material and actively participate.

Our flexible courses are taught by state certified driving instructors. So don't trust your child's safety to just anyone. Our proven success as driving instructors combined with your one-on-one driving training sessions with your student will have your teen on the road to safe driving in no time.

We offer Classroom and Behind the Wheel Instruction to assist the teen and adult in learning to drive and getting their driver's license. Our Drivers Education programs are state-approved and offer a comprehensive learning experience in a fun and friendly environment. Our Online Drivers Ed Program meets the California DMV's requirment for a 30-hour driving course. However, students are given a six-month period to complete the program plus we cater to your busy schedule! Click here to view our online driving class program rates.

Behind the Wheel Driving Instruction in Santa Monica

Our Santa Monica driving school provides a personal and courteous touch to behind the wheel driving instruction. With our professionally trained driving instrutors, students learn the rules of the road in Santa Monica firsthand. Each student receives private one-on-one driving lessons. This allows instrutors to help identify which areas of driving and safety a student needs to work on before taking the California Driver Test.

A minor driver is required by the California DMV to have 6 hours of behind the wheel driving instruction with a certified driving instructor and an additional 50 hours of supervised driving practice, including 10 night hours, in order to receive a California driver's license.

Route 66 Driving School provides each student as many hours of experienced driving instruction as needed. With free pick up on days, nights and weekends as well as special package hourly rates, we make drivers ed both easy and affordable. Not only do our instructors prepare students for each section of the California driver's test, but we also focus on areas that the road test does not cover, such as safety-based situational driving and advanced maneuvers. Students attending our driving school in Santa Monica learn everything from parallel and diagonal parking to two-points turns, three-points turns and U-turns. Most importantly, instructors teach students how to safely drive on the freeway, stay focuesd on the road and learn to trust their progress and experience from their driving lessons. Route 66 Driving School builds better drivers in Santa Monica by establishing safety, experience and confidence.

California Driver Test

Route 66 Driving School in Santa Monica turns the California Diver Test into a hassle-free experience. Our flat rate, no wait service provides a free one-hour practice driving lesson before the test. We schedule the driver's test through the DMV, pick up the student in one of our Mini-Cooper BMW late-model vehicles and perform a pre-test driving lesson to go over the exam and help the student feel comfortable before taking the test. By taking care of the appointment, proof of insurance and providing a safe and easy to operate vehicle, Route 66 Driving School takes away unnecessary stresses from the driver test.

Students that work with our professionally trained driving instructors through our Behind the Wheel drivers ed program are better prepared for the California driver test.

By feeling more at ease with their personal instrutor, students have more success taking the test. For most practiced students, knowledge of driving rules and operation of the vehicle is not the difficult part; the added stresses and pressure of the driver test is what causes problems. Route 66 Driving School takes the anxiety out of the exam and turns out better, safer drivers in Santa Monica!

Program Rates and Availability

Excellent! We used R66 for 3x2hr in car driving lessons after which my teen felt comfortable on the road and freeway and I also was more comfortable having her practice with me. I phoned at the last minute and needed lessons that week. Matt was really quick at setting us up and scheduling the lessons. Mike, the instructor was terrific too. The pick up and drop off from home was also very convenient and their Mini Cooper was perfect for learning. We plan to use them for refresher lessons closer to testing time. 5 Stars!
