Drivers Education in the State of MA is designed by the RMV to be completed in a 6-9 month timeframe. There are several factors that may impact the length of time to complete the Driving School program:
Newly permitted students will be required to spread out their lessons based on when they are eligible for a road test.
Students who have already met the RMV minimum requirements; should expect to be in our program for at least 5 months.
In order to schedule in-car lessons, the following requirements must be met:
Once the requirements above have been completed, you can begin to schedule your Behind The Wheel (BTW) driving lessons by using the student portal. BTW lessons are offered during the day, after school, evenings or on weekends. All lessons are booked on a first come, first served basis. BTW lessons are typically booked three weeks in advance. You will not be able to book all six lessons at the same time. It is important for students and/or parents to check the student portal daily for available lessons. Please note: you must carry your learner's permit for all in-car lessons.
All lessons are geographically scheduled. If your pickup location is in a remote or rural area or is located a distance that is deemed too far from an AAA Office, arrangements will be made to meet at a location suitable to the instructor and student. We want to make sure every student is getting the most of his/her lesson. Driving long distances from student to student restricts the time we have to work on the more difficult skills needed to pass a road test.
You have three options for scheduling your road test:
1. AAA Driving School offers an Alternative Off Hours Road Test option at the AAA West Springfield office.
2. Call AAA Driving School to sponsor your road test at a local RMV location.
3. Call or go to the RMV website to schedule your test at a local RMV location.
