Teenager Driving Programs

We provide the services of driver educational training, driving instruction and testing for the Denver metro-area (we are listed with the Colorado DMV and provide driving tests). Our educational training includes three different delivery systems to choose from:

  • Instruction IS required for teenagers under 15 years and 6 months
  • Proof IS required for reduced insurance rates - Excel in Driving will provide verification!
  • Higher priced programs do NOT provide higher quality services or instruction
  • Excel in Driving IS a state certified third party tester - we are available to give both the written and road tests by the state
  • All three of the teenager options MEET Colorado's requirement of thirty hours of instruction. Our educational training curriculum has been approved by the Department of Motor Vehicle. Driving instruction includes one-on-one, behind-the-wheel practice with a certified driving professional, and testing provides customers with a licensed facility to take the official Colorado driver written and driving test.

Educational Training Services

Behind-the-Wheel Practice: includes three, two-hour drives with one-on-one instruction (and yes, when we say one-on-one, we mean it - we don't have other students in the car waiting for their time to drive). The first drive is a city drive stressing the skills needed for driving in an urban setting from residential to major thoroughfares. It provides driving basics and evaluates the student's current proficiently. The second drive is a mountain drive where steering, braking and highway skills are learned and mastered. The third drive includes a practice driving test, overcoming any deficiencies that may have occurred and also provides practice on various types of paved roads and intersections. This program provides the student with the necessary skills to a safe and responsible driver.
