IN-CLASS AND BEHIND-THE-WHEEL INSTRUCTION ($475)

The State of Ohio requires teens to complete 24 hours of In-class education and eight (8) hours of Behind-the-Wheel training. Our students attend in-class sessions at one of our two locations (Trenton or Carlisle), and our in-car training consists of private lessons that ensure a one-to-one learning experience for each student with a certified instructor. (Please note, occasionally, there may be a second student in a car temporarily as we exchange and transport student drivers).

B-Safe Driving Education in-classroom classes begin every Monday at 5:15 – 9:30 during the regular school. Special circumstances may be arranged if a student is unable to begin on Mondays or if they miss a day during their course. We also offer driving education classes every summer.  Please contact us or check back here in Spring 2022 for information/details about Summer 2022 class schedule.

A teen may begin driving education at age of 15 years and five months, even before they are eligible to obtain a driving permit. At the age of 15 and six months a person may apply for a permit to start their in-car training.

The full cost of the classes (for both in-class and behind-the-wheel instruction) is $475/per student.  We do offer special pricing for teen driving siblings who are taking the driving course at the same time. You can find our 2022 Price List here.

In-Class Instruction

B-SAFE Driving Education classroom training is held three evenings per week, year round, from 5:15 – 9:30 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at both of our locations (Trenton and Carlisle). Class length equals 12 hrs per week, so completing two weeks of classroom training, without absence, would complete the 24 hours of classroom training  required by the state of Ohio.  In the summer, we also offer morning classes at all three locations.

Behind-The-Wheel Instruction

The eight (8) hours of Behind-the-Wheel instruction cannot begin until after the student has completed their 24 hours of classroom education, has passed a written test, and has a valid permit.

We schedule in-car training per our instructor and car availability, and we work hard to schedule drivers as soon as we can but we do not make any promises as to when we will get your student scheduled. The driving portion is normally scheduled in two 4-hour blocks, and we try to be flexible with pick-up and drop-off locations. Normally we will pick up at school or home and drop the student back off at home.

PLEASE NOTE:  Full payment for your student is required before a student can be placed on the waiting list for in-car training. We are currently scheduling Behind-the-Wheel training a minimum of four (4) months from contract start date. Scheduling is a lengthy process and will take at least 3-4 weeks before a schedule is posted online.  You should allow a minimum of four weeks from class completion date before calling with questions about scheduling Behind-the-Wheel (BTW) training. 

Completion of Instruction

A “Certification of Completion” will be issued at the end of the course, after both the in-class and in-car training have been completed. All driver education must be paid for and completed within six (6) months from the date the student starts classroom instruction – per Chapter 4501-7.10 of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC). Although we cannot guarantee that all students will pass their required classroom test or their BMV driving test, of course, we will do our very best to teach them everything they need to know to do so, and to be responsible and safe drivers.

Please call our Trenton main office at 513-988-7233 with any general questions or to inquire about how far out we are currently booking Behind-the-Wheel training.

REGISTER FOR CLASSES

Are you ready to register for driving instruction? We’d love to have your student as a student!  Please answer the following question to start the registration process.

 HAVE YOU ALREADY COMPLETED AN ONLINE COURSE?

SCHEDULE TO DRIVE

The State of Ohio requires eight (8) hours of Behind-the-Wheel driving with a certified instructor as an important part of the student’s driving education. At B-SAFE we do this in two (4) hour sessions, in a B-SAFE state-inspected vehicle, 1-on-1 with the instructor.

Please note that we are currently scheduling Behind-the-Wheel training a minimum of 4 months from student’s contract date AND the student’s fees are paid in full.  While a deposit will reserve a spot in a class for students, all fees must be paid in full to be added to the waiting list to be scheduled for Behind-the-Wheel training. This is a lengthy process and will take at least 3-4 weeks before a schedule is posted. Please wait a minimum of four weeks after course completion before e-mailing the B-SAFE scheduler (7233bsafeschedule@gmail.com) regarding scheduling. You will receive a green IMPORTANT SCHEDULING INFORMATION card at time of course sign up that contains information you will need for the Behind-the-Wheel scheduling.

B-SAFE uses Schedule2drive.com software to schedule student drivers. All scheduling must be completed online by our B-SAFE staff scheduler, and cannot be done by students or parents. Scheduling is a lengthy and complicated process that can sometimes take several weeks to months depending on the availability of the student and staff. We do the very best we can for each student, and we appreciate your patience.

Once scheduled, you will receive an email with instructions on how to log into Schedule2drive to view your student’s drive times, to make cancellations and how to request changes. You will have five (5) business days from the time you receive your notification email to log in and view your schedule. Once you have logged in and reviewed the scheduled dates, the times are confirmed and there is nothing more you need to do to confirm your drive times. The  student should be at the designated pick up location on the date and time shown and students MUST HAVE THEIR DRIVING PERMIT WITH THEM TO SHOW THE INSTRUCTOR OR BEHIND-THE-WHEEL SESSIONS WILL BE CANCELLED.

If these times do not work, please follow the procedure described in your notification email to re-schedule. All Behind-the-Wheel cancellations must be done online per the instructions on the green card, a minimum of 24 hours in advance to avoid a $50.00 late cancellation fee, and cancellation must be done prior to calling our office to reschedule.
