We are proud to announce we are back to in-person learning.  While the need for online learning was necessary at the inception of the pandemic, we are returning back to face to face teaching. Many parents have requested it.

No permit is required to start the 30 hr. classroom course!

All a student has to be, is 16 years of age in order to start. It is much more advantageous to begin the 30 hour course as soon as possible once the student turns 16!

Call 860-521-6130 or email nationwidedrivingschoolllc@gmail.com to get started. Our office phone-in hours are Mon-Fri 9am-5pm. Outside of those hours please leave a detailed message.

It’s the best way to go!

Classroom instruction is held Monday through Thursday 6-8 during the school year. A monthly calendar is posted on our website showing the dates and class numbers to be taught. Students may attend any class as needed. This may change with the addition of new class times.

The course consists of 15 2-hour classes which can be started in any order. Because the class is now in-person, students should plan ahead and try to complete the classes no more than 60 days from the start date. ALL students MUST BE finished with the classroom portion of the course within 90 days. This rule is important so we can let students start when they want and complete in a timely manner. Please check your sports or extra curricular activities schedules to make sure you are able to complete the required classes.
