Frequently Asked Questions


    • Do I need to have a permit to take driver's ed?
      No, but you do have to be at least 15 years old.

    • Do I need to have a permit to drive with an instructor?
      You only need to have one if you are 18 or older. Otherwise you do not need a permit to drive with Sooner State Driving School. However, you must have a permit to drive with someone at home. We recommend everyone get a permit at 15 1/2.

    • When do I do the 6 hours driving time?
      After you complete the classroom time, the driving instruction is done 2 hours at a time. So on 3 different days you will drive 2 hours with one on one instruction. This is scheduled at your convenience.

    • When can I take the written test?
      You may take the written test to obtain a learner's permit at the age of 15 1/2 if you are attending a driver education course.

    • How quickly can I finish?
      The finish time depends upon when your driving times and class times are completed. The class times are scheduled, but as students set up their own drive time, and as this varies with times of week, the weather, your time schedule, school schedule, and other factors, we cannot determine when you will be finished. But, we will work with you to help you make this happen as soon as possible.

    • How long do I have to get my program finished?
      You have one year from the first day of class to complete your drive time and take your driving test.  If over one year, a re-instatement fee of $50 will be charged.

    • I am in school everyday so how can I take the course and do the drive times?
      All of our classes and drive times are scheduled around public school hours. During the school year we have weekend and/or evening classroom sessions. During the summer and fall, winter, and spring breaks we will schedule daytime classes. This schedule goes for drive times as well.  We are open year-round!

    • Can I, as a parent, contact my son or daughter during their drive time or can they call me?
      Yes, we have phones in all of our cars. You may call our office for the phone number or ask the instructor at time of pick-up.

    • What age do I have to be to take the driving test with Sooner State Driving School?
      You must be at least 16 years old and have had your permit for at least 6 months. 

    • Do I need to practice driving on my own time, in addition to my drive time with Sooner State Driving School?
      Yes, practice makes perfect!  Even though you take driving lessons with us, you must also practice on your own. If you do not practice, you will not learn the skills necessary to learn the tasks. We recommend you practice as much as possible on your own time while you are taking lessons with us.

    • Do I get an insurance reduction for taking driver’s education?
      Most insurance companies do honor driver’s education programs if they are state certified. Please check with your insurance company for verification.  We will provide you with a certificate when you complete our program.

    • Are your instructors state certified?
      Yes. All of our employees receive background checks as well as continued service training to keep up with the ever-changing world of driving.

    • Do you offer gift certificates for your programs?
      Yes, we do. You will receive a colorful certificate with the student's name and program of choice. Call today!

    • How can I make sure I get enrolled in the class of my choice?
      We enroll for classes on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our classes can fill up quickly, so it is very important you pre-enroll so that you can get the class you want.
