Teen & Adult Driving Instruction

In-Car Lessons


Please Note: Scheduling is conducted on a "first-come/first-served" basis.


Central Drop-Off/Pick-Up Operation

With the exception of those students that live within the city limits of London, parents/students will meet with the instructor at the Duke Driving School office for ALL lessons for In-Car Instruction. Our "Central Pick-Up/Drop-Off Program" conducted from our office at 108 S. Main St. is the best method of operation for several reasons...

  • Advantage? Such LESSONS WILL NOT OVERLAP. This means your child will never ride with another novice student at the wheel.
  • Advantage? Such LESSONS WILL CONCENTRATE ON EACH INDIVIDUAL STUDENT for the purpose of thorough practical instruction without wasting time transporting students to their homes, work, practice, etc.
  • Advantage? Such LESSONS WILL INCLUDE EVALUATION. Parents & instructor will have opportunity to discuss the student's progress, strengths and weaknesses, areas for improvement, recommendations, etc.
  • Advantage? Such LESSONS WILL HELP KEEP COST DOWN. Duke wishes to always provide high quality instruction at a low reasonable price.

 

There may, on rare occassions, be an exception to the rule in order to accomodate a customer with a special request or "hardship" situation. [For example, parents request that their son/daughter have In-Car right after school, so they need to be picked-up at the local high school.] But as a rule, we have found this to be the best method of operation for everyone involved.
 

 

IN-CAR HOURLY BREAKDOWN

The usual breakdown for In-Car instruction is 4 distinct 2 hour lessons.

1st Lesson: Residential Driving (2 hrs)

2nd Lesson: Country Driving (2 hrs)

3rd Lesson: City Driving (2 hrs)

4th Lesson: Interstate Driving  (2 hrs)

Students are given ample time to practice Manueverability every single lesson.

The State of Ohio requires each student to complete 8 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.

 

Duke conducts In-Car Lessons 6 days-a-week except for Friday. Statistics show that the vast majority of vehicle crashes occur every Friday - especially during "Rush Hour" 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Therefore, for the safety of our students, Duke will not conduct lessons on Fridays. Duke will take the "Day Off" every Friday and be unavailable on all major Holidays.
