- I (and your partner) need to know well in advance of your session if you need to reschedule.

- Be on time!  If you are late we will not be driving that day.

- Do not schedule consecutive days for your sessions.  Two weeks between driving sessions is preferred. This allows you to practice and get better at driving skills that need work.

-Your partner should be someone close in age with you.  That ensures that you will both have your permits when you are ready to start BTW.

- When you are observing when doing the partner drive no phones, books or headphones are allowed.
