The 30-Hour Course

16 and 17-year-olds who want to:

  • take their Road Test four or more months after receiving their permit;
  • qualify for a reduction on their insurance;
  • receive a comprehensive education on how to become a safe new driver

No, you must be 16 years of age to attend the class.

No, you don’t need your permit to attend the class.  You will, however, need your permit when you begin to schedule your in-car driving lessons in our online student portal.

The 30-hour course is divided into 15 two-hour classes.  Each student is required to attend Class One through 14 and attend a Parent Class with a parent or legal guardian.  Classes can be taken at any of our 5 CT locations.

No, you do not need to attend the classes in chronological order.  For your convenience, you can put together a schedule of classes that works best for you.  Just make sure you complete all 15, including the Parent Class, before you take your road test.

Once you have registered and paid for the program, the only class that requires a sign-up before-hand is the Parent Class.  (You should have selected a Parent Class date during the registration process.  If not, sign into the Student Center and select a Parent Class from the “Purchase” menu.  You will not be charged for this class.)  There’s no need to sign up for each of the remaining 14 classes.  Be sure you sign the attendance sheet at each class you attend so you get credit for the class.

16 and 17-year-old students may attend up to four hours of class (2 classes) per day when school is not in session (week-ends, summer, school holidays).  On school days, students may only take one class.

Yes, if its more convenient for you to take a class or two in one of our other facilities, you are welcome to do so.  For your convenience, you can access all of our classroom calendars by using the dropdown menu on the calendar page of your primary location.

The 8-Hour Safe Driving Course

Any new driver who is 16 or 17 years old and wants to wait  six or more months after receiving their permit to take their Road Test.  We also offer the 8-Hour Class for individuals 18 years of age and older.

No, you must be 16 years of age to attend the class.

No, you don’t need your permit to attend the class.

The 8-hour course is divided into four two-hour classes:

For 16 and 17 year-olds:  Class 9,10, 11 and Parent Class (which must be attended by the student and one parent/legal guardian)

 

For 18 year and older: The 8 Hour Class is currently offered one Saturday a month at our Darien location.

No.  You can choose class times that work best for you.  The only class you need to register in advance for is the Parent/Teen Class which must be attended by the student and one parent (or legal guardian)

Yes, if its more convenient for you to take a class or two in one of our other facilities, you are welcome to do so.  For your convenience, you can access all of our classroom calendars by using the dropdown menu on the calendar page of your primary location.

Behind the Wheel Driving Lessons & Practice

The easiest way to schedule your driving lessons is online through our Student Center using the Username and Password that was sent to you via email when you signed up. You can call the office during business hours and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Driving Lessons are eighty (80) minutes long.  Our basic package consists of six (6) lessons which makes up the total of eight (8) hours required.

 

Please note that our system only works with 15 minute increments, so the lesson time shows up as 90 minutes, but the actual lesson is only 80 minutes.

Yes, we can pick up and drop off at home or school as long as it is in the towns in which we have locations.  Lessons can also start and end at any Fresh Green Light location

Our scheduling system automatically sends you an email reminder 48 hours in advance of the lesson time, which provides plenty of time to reschedule in case something comes up.  You also have the option of receiving text message reminders as well if you chose that selection during registration.

We have a strict 24 Hour Cancellation Policy:   If you cancel a lesson with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged a $50 cancellation fee regardless of the reason for the cancellation. We confirm the schedules of our outstanding Driving Coaches 24 hours in advance and we commit to paying them for the lessons on their schedule at that time.

If you must cancel a lesson, please do so by logging into the Student Center and cancelling the lesson online.  Do not leave a voicemail or send an email as this will not cancel your lesson.

Nope. Students must have their permit physically with them during lessons and we are required by the DMV to make sure that every student has their learner’s permit physically with them for every behind-the-wheel driving lesson – photo copies or pictures on phones don’t cut it.  If a student doesn’t have their permit for their lesson, a $ 50.00 cancellation fee will be applied.

No.  The DMV only allows a student to take one driving lesson a day.  Students can attend classroom sessions and have a driving lesson on the same day.  More importantly, we highly suggest that you space your driving lessons out over several weeks so that you are practicing what you’ve learned before moving on to the next lesson.

During the school year, driving lessons usually book 3-4 weeks in advance at Fresh Green Light, especially prime weekend times and school breaks. Summer is busiest time, so lessons can sometimes be booked out more than a month in advance.  Please plan accordingly.

 

 

 

 

 

The DMV Road Test at Fresh Green Light

  • The following individuals can take their Road Test at our facility:
    • Any 16 or 17 year-old student who has completed the 30-Hour Course with us, completed at least eight hours of behind-the-wheel instruction with us (6 driving lessons), and has held their permit for at least 121 days.
    • Any 16 or 17 year-old student who has completed the 8-Hour Course with us, completed at least 8 hours of driving lessons with us (6 driving lessons), and has held their permit for at least 181 days.
    • Any 18, 19, 20 or 21 year-old driver who has completed the 8-Hour Course with us, completed at least eight hours of driving lessons with us (6 driving lessons), and has held their permit for at least 91 days.

The DMV requires us to use a Fresh Green Light vehicle for the test.

 

 

They do not need to be at the facility on your test date.  In fact, we request that parents don’t come to the road test as it tends to make our students’ more nervous than they already are!

However, you and your parent will fill out and sign all of the necessary official DMV forms which must be filled out in blue or black ink a week prior to your Road Test date.

 

You should plan on being at Fresh Green Light for at least 3 hours the day of the test.

We can accommodate up to 18 students per test day, and advance sign up is required.  We schedule two sessions on the day at the test:  one at 8AM for ten (10) students and another at 10:00 AM.  (Student test times are based on signup dates – first to sign up goes first and so on).  The test itself takes about 20 minutes and is conducted on roads near our facility.

 

 

Currently, the test is offered at our Cos Cob, Darien, Westport and Wilton offices.  We hope to be expanding this service to Fairfield soon as enrollment increases.

 

If you want to change your Road Test date, you must change it more than 3 weeks prior to the scheduled date by calling the office.

If you change your date within three weeks of your scheduled date, you will not get a refund and will need to purchase a new Road Test.

 

You will pick up your driver’s license at the Norwalk DMV office three (3) business days after your Road Test.
