Driver’s Ed Locations

There are a few places you can take a drivers education course, the first one probably being your high school. Most of the high schools in Delaware offer drivers ed classes as part of their curriculum and it may also count towards your schools grades.

If your school does not offer driver’s education classes or you are not attending a high school, you may consider taking the class through one of the local professional driving schools. This may even be a better option as you will be taught by instructors who made their living teaching drivers ed.

No matter which course you choose, you have to make sure that it is certified by the Delaware DMV. If the course you took is not certified, the DMV will not grant you any credit for it.

Permit Exam

As in most of other states, every Delaware drivers license applicants is required to take a permit exam at the DMV. The permit exam is not hard at all, provided you are prepared for it.

Those who did not take driver’s education but still want to prepare should consider going over the Delaware drivers handbook and rubbing it in with some permit practice exams.
