No Show Fee

  • A $50 fee may be assessed if a scheduled drive is cancelled less than 24 hours in advance; or the student is not available at the specified location when the instructor arrives or declines to drive when the instructor arrives. 


Refunds

A request for a refund must be made within 72 hours of payment being received by Behind The Wheel. No refunds will be made if the student has received the official State CDE form signed by Behind The Wheel or has already begun driving with a Behind The Wheel instructor.
