This course will prepare you to take the State of Maine written exam and road test in order to obtain your permit and/or license.

The class meets in person to complete the in-class portion. During that time your permit application and required paperwork will be submitted to the state for you to receive your driver's permit. When your permit is received, the instructor will schedule your driving times individually.

Those adults currrently holding a permit in need of road time are also encouraged to enroll.  We can discuss applicable fees and driving times.

The cost covers in-class time (approx 6 hours), driving time with the instructor in his vehicle (up to 6 hours), and application fee for the state. We have added this course to the list of approved state of Maine training providers. If you are a recipient of services from qualifying agencies (Fedcap, ACAP, Career Center, HOPE, etc.), there's a strong likelihood that you will qualify for the course fee to be covered.

If you are unable to pay for this course on your own and aren't sure where to turn, we can help you figure out your next steps. Payment plans are also available.

Before you can start the course you must provide us with a copy of your ID and social security card.  If you are under the age of 23, you must also provide your birth certificate with the embossed seal.  Notarized copies are NOT acceptable.
