TOP NOTCH DRIVING SCHOOL POLICY
Education On Wheels
It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that the Instruction Permit,
issued by Department of Motor Vehicles (D.M.V), is in their possession
EACH driving lesson.
A copy of the signed Permit will only be accepted on the 2nd or 3rd Lesson.
We encourage students to make copies of the Signed Permit and keep them
in their car and wallet at all times.
Students must have their permit with them in order to participate in
any behind-the-wheel driving lessons. Failure to have the permit
will be treated as a "no show." If you have to change the time of
your driving lesson, it must be at least two days in advance of the
appointment to avoid a rescheduling or “no show” fee. The behind-the-wheel
rescheduling fee is $50.00 per occurrence.
Refunds will be subject to a $100 processing fee.
Bounced Checks, if your check bounces there will be a $25 charge and
you will have to make a cash only payment on next lesson. No Certificate
of Completion will be issued till all payments have been made.
6 hours of Driving Instruction is required by D.M.V. for all drivers under
age 17-1/2. Each lesson is 2 hours, a total of 3 lessons. The 3rd (last)
lesson should be scheduled as close to taking the drive test as possible.
Be sure to schedule your last lesson
making the Drive Test appointment with the Department of Motor Vehicles
At Top Notch Driving School, we not only recognize that parent involvement
is important, we make it a key component of our driving school curriculum.
Parents are encouraged to be available at the end of each driving lesson,
where we will share information to help build their teen's confidence
and driving responsibility, as well as tips that will help parents coach
their teens during practice periods.
We teach students of all levels the key concepts of driving a motor vehicle.
During the 6 hours all skills needed to pass the DMV behind the wheel
driving test will be taught. We teach students all the skills they need
in and around their neighborhood within a 5 - 10 mile radius. Parents
are responsible to practice the skills we teach students and to practice
with them at the DMV they will be testing at.
*On the 3rd Lesson we will take Students to the D.M.V. in their City. For
Example: If you live in Oxnard, we’ll take you to the Oxnard D.M.V. If
you live in Ventura we will take you to the Ventura D.M.V.
Camarillo Students your instructor will advise you on the recommended
location of your closest D.M.V on your 2nd Lesson.
: If the Student can meet us at the D.M.V. then this results in the entire
Lessons being at the D.M.V. and will be most beneficial to the student.
If a Parent/Student Chooses an alternate D.M.V. (must be a location TNDS
services) that is not in their city there will be a $35 surcharge.
A D.M.V. Simulated test will be done. This test will help the student determine
if they are ready or not or if they need more lessons. Students normally
do not need more lessons if they are practicing the skills/techniques
the TNDS instructors taught them. Per the California D.M.V. requirements,
Parents must practice 50 hours with their child, 10 hours of which need
to be at night.
Signing this policy also confirms that you understand that should you or
your child lose their Certificate of Completion that there will be a
$50 processing fee to issue a new one.
I agree to all conditions stated and if I am under 18 years of age, to show
this form to my parents so that they are aware of these conditions as
Important note: We will do our best to arrange for you the closest
time available for your behind-the-wheel lessons. However, 95% of our
clientele are teenagers in school and the late afternoon and weekend
lesson times go first and therefore, will have a longer wait period.
If you can make arrangements to take a lesson during a weekday, early
morning or early afternoon, before 3:00 p.m., you should be able to get
an earlier appointment time. Otherwise, the wait could be as long as
six weeks. Summer time is the busiest time of the year for us; the wait
could also be as long as six weeks.
If a parent is not available to sign, student will sign but agrees to show
this policy to their parent.
