NOTICE: To sign-up for either the online or my personal class just walk in about 30 minutes before class time at the corner of Dalton and Government Way or by appointment.
The state has clarified that students MUST have purchased a permit before they start a driver ed course or take part in any driving lessons. First, go to the DMV with student to register.
Pricing: Full Program: $390/ Driver Education Class Only: $90/ Drives Only: $300
Currently we are advising parents that the online or my personal class can be started immediately.
The classroom phase can be done immediately. There is no waiting period. Once the classroom phase is completed, the parents can decide if they want to go on with our availability for the driving portion. The online is at the student's own pace while our personal class will take about seven weeks. It is advisable that the student take my in-class since it is better than the online version. My personal class covers material beyond any text and includes all of my many years of experience. Learning to drive cannot be done by merely reading text material. The full outstanding payment will be done before the drives are started. Once the drives are started and scheduled with an on-going basis, refunds will not be granted.
The good news is that I am always looking for new instructors to join my company. I plan to have another instructor join the school. At that point, we can better handle all new students entering the system. Whenever there are too many customers, the solution is to qualify more help and not to turn down customers and raise prices. I am asking parents to be patient as we go through all the adjustments. The process of qualifying instructors in Idaho is very lengthy. Meanwhile, the other drive schools have a long wait list. While we can allow new students into the classroom phase, we have to warn parents that the driving sessions will take much longer to accomplish (as much as 4 to 8 weeks after the classroom is completed). If the student is available to drive early mornings (Monday to Friday), the scheduling will not be a problem. There are too many people moving into the Coeur d'Alene area from every state. If too many students apply, I may have to deny new entries into my driver ed program.
Note: If you are in any sort of rush to get this done, do not come here before I give notice of the new instructors that I am expecting. Idaho has control over giving licenses to my prospective instructors. Also, it is getting harder to find good people that are willing to do this kind of work as a business. I do have a license to train new instructors. I will be adding a partner or two to help. However, if you feel that you cannot fully respect my knowledge of imparting this education to your son or daughter, then go some place else. My knowledge goes back to the age of six when I almost got runned over at a crosswalk. Then, my grandfather taught me to always look both ways when crossing a street by age seven. Then for many years I observed my dad drive the car since I had no cell phone to play games and gossip from the back seat. I will always stress the powers of observation and logic in my class. You parents should not assume that driving is just a steering wheel with some pedals which interact with four tires. What is the value of your kid's life?
Class Schedule: Tuesday and Wednesday 6 to 8 PM or
Thursday and Friday 3:15 to 5:15
Always call first. Signing up is at either 5:30 (Tuesday/Wednesday) or at 2:45 (Thursday/Friday) on the first day of class. Online signing up is also at the same times unless by appointment. The subject matter of the Tuesday and Wednesday group is the same as that presented in the Thursday Friday group. Normally, there is no waiting period.....just walk in. The classes are perpetual and ongoing by which the student merely goes full circle for seven weeks and takes a final test.
www.roadmastersofamerica.com and www.cdadriving.com are the same but www.roadmasters.info is for reference
I am at the classroom during class times and 30 minutes before class. I can always meet clients by appointment. I normally do the sign ups 30 minutes before my class time. This process is for the online and for the personal class.
NOTE: THE ACTUAL SIGNING UP IS DONE AT THE CLASSROOM AND NOT ONLINE. MY POLICY IS TO MEET WITH YOU AT MY CLASS ON TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY AT 5:30 OR ON A THURSDAY OR FRIDAY AT 2:45. AT THAT TIME, YOU DECIDE FOR THE ONLINE CLASS OR THE PERSONAL CLASS.
