How To Get In…
This is really the easiest part. After you have thoroughly researched the school of choice and reviewed all your options it is time to decide. Applying is simple. Go to the school’s website and click the button apply.

But there are other ways, unlike most companies when you are job hunting, the schools welcome phone calls, or even encourage an in person visit.

Typically the general application isn’t too hard or too long, depending on the school. They will follow-up with a phone call and/or an email.

The email generally has several forms that must be filled out along with some required attachments. You fill all this out and send it back. They review it and then you can decide on a class date.

What Are the Requirements?
I did mention some attachments and such. Well, as a famous person once said, “there is always free cheese in mouse trap”, but if you are clean you have nothing to worry about.

They will do a background check on you, typically this includes a criminal, credit, and your driving record. They will also check your employment history, and references, as appropriate.

Though most don’t have higher education requirements, you must have a high school diploma or GED. As for a criminal history, if you have a felony conviction (in the last 7 years) most won’t take you.

If you have a poor driving record such as DUI/DWI or other serious offenses they won’t risk letting you attend. As for employment, it really depends on your circumstance, be honest.

There are other considerations as well such as the medical fitness test. All drivers must meet the physical requirements as determined by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Don’t worry, this isn’t nearly as scary as it might sound, but they still require you to be examined and pass.

If you do choose a school, regardless if tuition is out of your pocket or not, be prepared to cover all related cost.

Also be prepared, even though it is a driving school you still need to study and pass written exams as well as driving tests.
