At Excel Driving Instruction, we believe in giving you a strong learning foundation before you begin driving. First you will complete our 10-unit online course. Upon completion, you will be asked for your tuition payment. Excel will then send you a Certificate of Driver’s Education, which you will need to obtain your learner’s permit. When you have passed the written test at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and have your Learner’s Permit in hand, we will schedule you for your six behind-the-wheel driving lessons. Excel’s specially-licensed instructors will provide you with a progress report after each driving lesson. Please share this progress report with your parents, so they can help you practice.
