Drive Happy Scheduling Tip!

Summer is fast approaching and we know that you’re eager to finish up your driving lessons and get your License. Please remember to contact us to schedule early. We work hard to find the right space for you, but we’re only human and there are only so many spaces available in a day.

Please do not wait to schedule your final driving lessons days before your permit expires, or before your Drive Test. In fact, you should not schedule your Drive Test until you have your last driving lesson scheduled.

There is a very good reason that you are required to hold your permit for 6 months before your driving test. Allowing sufficient time for training and supervised practice will not only help you prepare for your driving test, it will make you a safer and more confident driver for years to come.

Thanks for reading, and Drive Happy!

Driving Lesson Interruption In Fallbrook

Update 3:30pm:
We have temporarily suspended driving lesson service to Fallbrook and surrounding communities due to the multiple wild fires burning in the area.

Today we are tracking 2 fires in the Fallbrook area. To all of our Fallbrook students, parents, and friends: Our thoughts are with you and the fire crews defending your community.

We will continue to monitor the fire activity and if needed will temporarily suspend driving lessons in the Fallbrook area.

Tuesday Drive Happy Tip

Pedestrians have the right of way in marked, or unmarked crosswalks. When approaching an intersection, always check the corners for pedestrians who may be preparing to cross and yield as needed.

We’re Back!

We had a very productive Driving School Association of California Board Meeting and Seminar in Pleasanton, California over the weekend. Some very good educational material was presented by the California the Highway Patrol, CalTrans, the California Transplant Donor Network, and Handicap Driver Training.

The travel and time that we dedicate to these events is significant, but definitely worth it. How often do you get a chance to talk directly to a Senior Traffic Engineer from Caltrans? This kind of insight is something that most driving schools simply don’t have.

As always we appreciate the patience and understanding of our students and customers. You’re all great, and we are excited to put the information we learn at these events to work teaching you. Thanks for your time, and Drive Happy.

DSAC Board Meeting & Seminar This Weekend

Good morning everyone!

Just a quick update to let you know that Amber and Josh will be attending the Driving School Association of California Board Meeting and Continuing Education Seminar this weekend in Pleasanton, CA. Amber and Josh are both very involved in the Driving School Industry and always looking for ways to improve their knowledge and teaching abilities. Josh is also the currently serving President of the Driving School Association of California. These events take place 3 times a year in Los Angeles, Pleasanton, and San Diego. We understand that it is inconvenient for our students to not be available for driving lessons during these times, but we hope that you understand how important it is for us to participate in these events. The end result is that we are able to teach you better.

Temecula DMV Closure & Drive Happy Drive Test

Due to the upcoming closure of the Temecula DMV on March 21st, all Drive Happy Drive Test will be scheduled at the Hemet DMV. We’ll be using Hemet until the Temecula DMV reopens. Prices and scheduling times for Drive Test will increase to reflect the longer travel distance, and anticipated scheduling delays.

We expect to increase the price of the Drive Test to $250.00. If you’ve already paid for a Drive Test this change does not affect you.

Please expect this change to be implemented online no later than the end of today Monday (03/10/14).

We appreciate your patience and understanding.
