TEENS (Classroom Required by Joshua's Law)

You may take the classroom portion at the age of 14, the behind the wheel portion at the age 15. No learner’s permit is required to start the class, regardless of the student’s age.

Barber’s 30/6 Teen Driver Education Program satisfies Joshua’s Law. The basic course consists of 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours of private (BTW) Behind The Wheel lessons. After the completion of the basic Teen Driver Education 30/6 Course, a Barber’s Driving School Tester can administer the student’s Georgia Road Test for their Class D or C Georgia Driver’s License when he or she is eligible.

The classroom is 30 hours long and held over a 4 day period from 9am-5:30pm with a lunch break from 12:30-1:30.  The classroom may be completed in-person or on zoom.

All (BTW) Behind The Wheel lessons are scheduled by you, through DriveScout, in 3 hour sessions.   After registering the student you will receive a “Welcome to DriveScout” email.  It will contain your username and password to log in.  Please schedule these lessons ASAP as we stay booked up.  You can schedule now for future lessons.  Do not wait until you are ready, because the present times will not be available.  Barber’s will pick up the student and drop off anywhere in Muscogee County and Ft. Benning for the BTW lessons.

After you schedule the driving lessons, call Barber’s to schedule the Road Test.  This can be scheduled in advance but must be set up for when the student has held their permit for 1 year and 1 day.  On test day, you will bring the student to Barber’s and we will test them in our car, on our course and with our instructor.  You will still need to take the paperwork to the Georgia DDS to have the license issued.  You will need your ADAP and ATTENDANCE form from your high school.  Request these forms two weeks before you plan on taking your road test.

With an insurance savings of 10%-20% per year, most parents will save close to the full basic

driver education program tuition the first couple of years their teenager is added to their policy.

ADULTS (Classroom not required - Your Option)

It’s never too late to learn to drive! Our adult students can range from 18- 100 years old. No matter how old you are, if you can pass the physical, mental and vision requirements to obtain an Alabama or Georgia Driver’s License, we can teach you to drive.

At Barber’s Driving School, you do not need a Learner’s Permit or any experience to start. We have friendly, courteous, and skillfully trained instructors who will make learning to drive a simple and fun experience. Barber’s is licensed in both Alabama and Georgia to conduct driver education courses.

Each year, Barber’s teaches hundreds of adults of all ages to drive safely and helps them to earn their Georgia or Alabama Driver’s License. We offer free pick up and drop off for your behind-the-wheel training in Muscogee County; however, you must provide your own transportation for classroom training, if you chose a combination classroom and behind the wheel package.

Adults can take the full program, which includes the 30 hours

classroom training, or just (BTW) Behind The Wheel lessons.

(BTW) Behind The Wheel Lessons

Barber’s trains 7 days a week (BTW) Behind The Wheel from 8:00am until 8:00pm.  All Behind The Wheel lessons are private with you and the instructor.  Barber’s uses our late-model, fully insured, dual-brake controlled Toyota Corollas.

Behind The Wheel packages start with a minimum of 2 hours and go up in 2-hour increments: the more hours you purchase, the better the price.  Most beginners need on average 8-12 hours.  This heavily depends on whether you have someone to let you practice at home or not.

If you are already driving and only need help with a specific vehicle maneuver like parking, driving on interstate highways, backing, etc., you may purchase as few as 2 hours.

All driving times are by appointment in 2, 3, 4 or even 6-hour sessions.

All (BTW) Behind The Wheel lessons are scheduled by you, through DriveScout, in 3 hour sessions.   After registering the student you will receive a “Welcome to DriveScout” email.  It will contain your username and password to log in.  Please schedule these lessons ASAP as we stay booked up.  You can schedule now for future lessons.  Do not wait until you are ready, because the present times will not be available.  Barber’s will pick up the student and drop off anywhere in Muscogee County and Ft. Benning for the BTW lessons.

I expected DUI school to be long, boring, and drawn-out, but with the instructor I had, I think I learned a hell of a lot more than I would have with any other school. Mrs. Candice was AWESOME, to say the least!!! Makes me wish she was in the D.A.R.E. programs way back when before I got into this mess. But because of her enthusiasm and genuine concern for us, and the information of course, I was truly able to be honest with myself and now have the desire to make real changes, aka low-risk choices. Much appreciated!!

I’m very impressed with Barbers. My sons drivers Sylvee and Jerry were very thorough with me and explained their entire driving process. I’ll definitely be booking more driving appointments.

Barber's Driving School is great! Especially Keith, he is one of the instructors that gives the kids lessons on driving. It was like a 360 from when my son first got his permit to when he completed Barbers. Don't get me wrong he still needed practice but it was amazing at how different he drove after going through the class. Definitely worth the money!
