Class Information

Quality Driving has been approved to do the DOL testing in our classrooms. Students need to study for the written test. Students also need to have completely paid all fees and fines before applying to do the written test or the drive tests. 80% is the minimum passing grade. Our price includes one try at each the written and the drive test as part of the program. Tests will be given on a special day.

Quality Driving will offer classes 3 times  a week for the fall/winter sessions.

Quality Driving gives 15 lessons, 6 hours of driving, and the student needs to complete 1 hour of observation in the Drivers Ed car.  When everything is paid for including fines, then they can take the state testing which is paid for with the class.

A notebook and a writing tool is needed when you come to class.


We need your help for your student to be successful. Students need to practice.

Mandatory parent meeting will be held on first day of class at 5:30pm.

To enroll student, pay, and be able to get a permit you need to attend the parent meeting.  You can only get a permit 10 days before the class begins, so choose one that works with your schedule.

You can call to set up an appointment to do paperwork, or download it from the forms page here on our site.

Driver’s Ed Graduation Check List

You have 4 months to complete the following:

✔ Get your permit up to 10 days before the class starts
✔ Completed 30 hours of class and written test
✔ Completed 6 hours of driving
✔ Completed 1 hour of observation
✔ Pay all money owed including fines (course completion is added when all fines are paid and class is paid or after everything is completed)
✔ Take State DOL Written test: $30 (1st attempt included with course fees)
✔ Take State DOL Drive test:  $40 (1st attempt included with course fees)


There are 6 class drives that need to be completed. Each drive is 1 hour long. We recommend that students schedule a class drive each week in order to complete all 6 drives by the end of the written part. Drives are set up in class, or the student can call in to schedule drives with Sandra at (509) 521-0812. The Student can pick their own time and date of drive. A student needs a lot of practice during the 5 – 7 weeks of class in order to pass all elements and be ready to do the final drive; parents need to plan on practicing with their student at least 20 minutes a day. One hour of observation is also needed; this is when a student rides in the back seat of the car and watches and listens to the instructor.

Drives are tests and students MUST PASS all elements in order to move forward in class.

Quality Driving Reserves the right to refuse service to anyone!

*Note: Quality Driving is trying to achieve great drivers. We have limited space in our classes. Parents and students who do not have the time to take this course seriously will need to wait until they are ready to do the work involved. The student needs to do something every week such as drive and class or drive and observation.

Makeup tests can be done before the class is over and do not cost extra.

Classes may change due to weather and teacher’s availability. Will notify if there is a change.

When a student misses a class they need to make that class up.  We will be holding all makeups in Othello.  Students will check with the teacher to see when that can be done.  We encourage students not to miss classes as the written test may not be able to be taken.
