Pkg HELP note to PARENTS: Don't feel like driving with your young adult? Dreading working with them on their required 50 hours? Let us drive with them for you! These 50 hours are session hours as if you were taking your young adult out driving inbetween our lessons. Session hours cover the techniques your young adult took in a lesson(s).This is Pkg HELP, 50 session hours-You NEVER have to take your young adult out practice driving, EVER! One LESSON must be taken first before 50 hours session hours in PKG HELP can start. The HELP session hours do not count toward the 6 hour hours of behind the wheel hours required for teens to obtain a btw certificate. BTW Certificate hours are lesson hours only. So in order for a teen to obtain a behind the wheel certificate, three Pkg As or one Pkg C needs to be taken.
Lessons still available the week of 4/1/23. Register and then we will advise what is available at that time.

If Zelle payment is made to us after the 24 hour mark of us confirming a lesson, a $25 late payment fee will be assessed and will need to be paid with the package payment. Failure to pay assessed fees and package payment will result in no lesson, drive test or session. Assessed fees do not drop off accounts, even if we authorize a rescheduled lesson.
For existing students adding on a drive test, lessons or sessions, payment for the add on drive test, lesson or session is due within 24 hours from us scheduling that add on package even if a prior package is not complete yet. The same late fee of $25 will apply if not paid on time via Zelle.

I asked for Anika based on yelp reviews. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She followed up each lesson with an evaluation and suggested exercises to improve driving. She was flexible and worked with my 17 year old's school schedule. I would highly recommend her. BTW, my daughter was very comfortable with Ms. Anika and passed the first driving test she took at the DMV.

A great exciting experience for my daughter...she was very excited and texted me once the 1st instruction was complete and said she feels so much more comfortable. Her instructor was Anika and my daughter says she was cool! Thank You Anika and ARS for a great experience.
