Needham Driving School courses are made up of 30 classroom hours (fifteen 2-hour modules of instruction.) Classes do not have to be taken consecutively or in order. You may finish in as little as one week or take up to a year to complete.
We offer several options for scheduling your Driver’s Education classes. Classes meet on weekday evenings 6pm-8pm, or on weekends from 9am to 3PM. During school vacation weeks (public and private) and summer vacation, we offer Accelerated, one-week classes Monday- Friday.
You can make-up missed classes in our make up schedule.
Needham Driving School will offer Accelerated / Intensive 5-day courses during summer and during public and private school vacations. In the Accelerated Course, a student can finish all of the required 30 hours of classroom in just one week. If you have any other questions please call or email anytime.
Accelerated Class Rules and Restrictions
Parents will receive a detailed handout describing Needham Driving School's expectations of the students in addition to policies, procedures, the content of classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction, which students will receive. Parents will then receive a copy of the Junior operator's law and read from the Massachusetts Drivers Manual After parents have an understanding of the Junior operator's law, their vital role in support of the law will be explained. In conclusion of the class, the instructor will give advice and provide structure to help parents teach their children to drive. Parents will be encouraged to use the instructors at Needham Driving School as a collective resource for any questions or concerns regarding their children and driving. By the end of this session, the instructor and the parents will become partners in achieving the common goal of teaching the students to become responsible drivers.
