All individuals MUST HOLD A LEARNER'S PERMIT AT LEAST 180 DAYS before obtaining their license.

Will I Have To Take A Test To Get My Permit?
Yes. Everyone trying to obtain a permit must pass a 50 question multiple choice test at the license bureau.
When Can I Start Scheduling My In-Car Lessons?
When you have received the plastic portion of your permit from the license bureau you may call us to schedule an in-car lesson.
Are There Other Students In The Car When I'm Driving?
No. Other students in the car can make the driver nervous and be dangerous.
One positive thing from the pandemic is since requiring students to be brought to our office for their lessons, it has enabled students to be able to start in the parking lot (if necessary) thus allowing them to adapt to the vehicle and the instructor, before requiring them to start driving on the road in traffic which is what happens when students are picked up at home or school. By doing so, we're able to spend more time on parking, multiple traffic situations, and better one-to-one instruction. This has really been helpful as student's Road Test scores are proving!
Can I Take My Road Test At Frick's?
Yes! Once you've completed a full driver education course and completed at least the driving portion with us you may take your Road Test at Frick's. (Our Online Course and Six Hours In-Car Instruction definitely qualifies). You need to be at least 16 years and 90 days.
The Road Test is in addition to the Six Driving Hours and there is an additional fee.
When Should I Take The Road Test at Frick's?
Student's are eligible to take the Road Test at Frick's as soon as they've completed the course and are at least 16 years and 90 days. We recommend not waiting until just before you're ready to get your license since availability may be limited.
