The process for determining when a student drives is based on their date of birth with the oldest driving first. Driving times are decided by the different instructors. Normally, during school days, driving will be scheduled from 2:30pm-9:00pm and there will be limited openings to drive before school (6:00am-7:30am) and on Saturdays.
