Welcome to Drive Right Academy, Inc.

Summer Sessions now available for sign-up!

See our sessions page for locations, dates, and times for Summer 2014 classroom sessions.


Call us for details on our online program that students can complete at their own pace from the comfort of home!  Remember also that we drive with students 7 days a week, year round, so we can accomodate any schedule.

Q: How old does my son/daughter need to be to enroll in a class or online session? 
A: Students must be 15 years old to enroll in the course.  This law changed back on January 1, 2012.  All students registering for a course must be 15 when they sign up for a course.

Q: How exactly does the online course work?
A: The online course offers students the freedom to complete the 30 hours of bookwork at their own pace, in the comfort of their own home. It offers practice tests for students to prepare them for the written exam at the BMV and has become extremely popular in recent years because of its ease of use and convenience.  Once the online course is complete, we issue the CDE form necessary to obtain the learner permit.  Once your student has obtained his/her permit, you simply contact us to be partnered with an instructor for the 6 hours of behind the wheel training. 

Q: Where does my student meet for driving sessions if they are enrolled online?
A: For online courses, students now have an option to drive from the following high schools: DeKalb, East Noble, Angola, and Prairie Heights

Q: When will my student complete the driving portion of the class?
A: We will begin signing students up for drive times after they receive their permit from the BMV.

Q: How do I get my permit?
A: Anyone getting a permit must now first pass the written exam at the BMV.  We will issue the CDE form necessary to get the learner permit after a classroom or online session has been completed.  You must have this permit to drive at any time in the course or with a parent. 

Q: What if my student needs to miss a classroom session?
A: Missing classroom sessions is not permitted.  If you feel you will have a conflict with a session, please consider a different session or our online option.  Only under extreme circumstances will an absence from a classroom session be considered, and there could be up to a $60 fee incurred for each absence. 

Q: Do you offer the BMV driving test portion of licensing?
A: Yes we do!  Once a student has completed the course they may take the driving portion of the BMV exam, and we will stamp their permit accordingly.

Q: My student is ready to get their license, but we have lost their paper permit with the passing grade on it.  What do I need to do?
A: Assuming you completed one of our courses, you will need to contact us to have a letter written stating that your student completed the course.  You will then present this letter to the BMV.  There is a $10 fee for this service.

Q: My student does not attend one of your partnered high schools.  Can they still enroll?
A: Yes!  We offer our services to any student needing driver education.  Simply fill out a registration form and mail it in with payment to begin our online or classroom course.

Q: My student is home schooled.  Are they eligible for your program?
A: Yes they are.  Any person 15 years old or older may enroll in our program.  We also offer driving sessions earlier in day, which some home school students have taken advantage of!
