Class B Driver Training School Licensing Requirements

The Application Process

For information on opening a Class B driver training school or becoming certified as a driving school instructor, refer to the Class B Driver Training School Application Process.

All driver training schools must have at least one instructor.

Pre-Licensing On-Site Audit

After the prospective driver training school provides evidence that all requirements have been met, DMV conducts an on-site pre-licensing audit to ensure that the facilities and vehicles meet the required standards.

How Long Does the Licensing Process Take?

While every case is different, the process generally takes approximately 30 days.
