_ THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF DRIVER'S EDUCATION AND CERTIFICATION
Welcome to Grand Prix Driving School. This sheet will not only
give us necessary information about you to get you started but also to
help you better understand the process of drivers education.
Grand Prix Driver’s Education classes consist of ten three hour
classes. Each class is numbered 1-10.The classroom portion of driver
education may be started once the student turns 15yrs 9months. The student is RESPONSIBLE for signing IN on the attendance sheet . If they miss a class or FORGET TO SIGN
the attendance sheet they must make up that particular numbered
class. Please call the office for class number, location, make-up
dates and times. You need to be sure you make up the correct class..
The students can start booking their driving lessons after they
have completed the second class. Each time they drive, they must have
their learner’s permit (no photocopies) they cannot drive without it.
Lessons are by appointment, and are a door- to- door service in most
locations. Please call the office to begin booking: 508-771-1227.
Home pickups the student must be ready up to ½ hour before the scheduled time. This allows the instructor flexibility in case of schedule or geographical problems as well as your observation time.
Students are picked up in the front, at the main entrance of
their school. Falmouth High School students will be picked up at the
tennis courts. On days of inclement weather, we will pick the student
up at the main entrance as soon as the buses have departed.
ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: We must charge $60.00 per
hour lesson, for a CANCELLATION OR NO-SHOW, if he or she is unavailable,
unable, canceling or just missed the driving appointment without a
24-hour notice. To cancel weekend appointments we must be notified by
4pm on Friday. Also you may not book your last four driving hours unless
your bill is paid in full.
Once the course is completed, the bill is paid; Grand Prix will
send a letter requesting that the student be certified. The RMV will
enter the student’s information into the computer in Boston and at that
time the student is eligible to schedule the road test for the
The student now needs to decide who will be sponsoring them. A
sponsor is one who is over 21, has had a MA license for more than a
year and will sit in the back seat while on the road test. A parent
or older friend can be a sponsor. The deciding factor for most is if
the car you choose to take has an emergency brake
in the center console. If there isn’t, you can borrow one with a
signed letter of permission or have Grand Prix sponsor you.
If you decide to have Grand Prix sponsor you WE MUST BE THE ONE TO BOOK THE TEST FOR YOU.
Sponsorship includes, the use of our car, driving instructor as sponsor and an instructional warm up lesson.
Warm up lessons are for 1 hour directly before your road est for $80.00
