How to pick a driving school for your teen
has some tips for parents that you should use before deciding on an appropriate school for your driver-to-be.
The Better Business Bureau says it has received hundreds of complaints regarding driving schools over the last two years, including accusations of bad customer service, questionable sales practices and teachers who never show up for class.
Parents should first check with the DMV as to what will be required of their teenager when they apply for a permit or license, and then confirm with the driving school that it will provide instructions on those requirements.
Confirm that the operators and instructors at any driving school are properly licensed, and don't be afraid to ask the school for some references before signing up.
