BEHIND THE WHEEL PROVIDES PROFESSIONAL DRIVER EDUCATION TO MORE THAN 2,000 TEEN AND ADULT STUDENTS ANNUALLY IN EVANSVILLE AND SURROUNDING SOUTHERN INDIANA COMMUNITIES!
WE PICK YOU UP FOR YOUR DRIVES!
Our free, convenient, two-hour prep seminar is a big hit for the student that wants some classroom instruction to prepare for the learner's permit test. Seminars are offered at our office and also in some area high schools.
That's the reaction most parents have when their teenager turns 15. While your child is dreaming of the freedom of the open road, all you can think about are the statistics...plus imagining a future of late-night worrying. That's why high-quality driver education is so critical at this point in your teen's life. Behind The Wheel offers year-round personalized instruction that involves both the beginning driver and the parents. And rest assured: Behind The Wheel is fully certified by the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles along with all of its instructors, who undergo thorough background checks, physical exams and more. Students drive one-on-one with the instructor, and parents are kept informed of the skills their child needs additional help with between drives. We even offer a free two-hour seminar to help students prepare for the required written test to get their learner's permit!
And the best news for busy parents: we pick up and drop off our students from home and school at no extra charge!
(And even if you're closer to 50 than 15, it's never too late to learn to drive! Our specialized adult driving education is geared toward the needs of adults with convenient drive times that will accommodate your schedule. One-hour evaluation drives are also available with a certified instructor that can provide an objective review of current driving ability.)
