Teenage Classes & Driving Lessons and Adult Driving Lessons
Taggart’s Driving School, licensed by the Georgia Department of Driver Services, operates Teenage and Adult Driver Education Programs. These school-based course programs are offered in classes in both public and private schools in the state of Georgia and in our own school classroom locations throughout Metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia.
On January 1, 2002, the requirements changed for anyone under age 17 to obtain an initial Georgia driver’s license. Now, under O.C.G.A. 40-5-22, option (A), ALL under age 17 applicants must complete a driver education program consisting of a minimum of 30 hours of classroom and 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training. Our program meets the requirements for driver education under that code section.
As an alternative to (A), mentioned above, option (B) requires a signed affidavit stating the applicant has accumulated a total of at least 40 hours of supervised driving experience, including at least 6 hours of driving at night. To assist individuals in completing the requirements under option (B), Taggart’s Driving School provides private, in-car lessons, with home pick-up, featuring training vehicles with our exclusive two-steering wheel, two-brake and two-gas pedal system.
Our two-steering wheel, two-brake and two-gas pedal systems provides a safe vehicle to instruct future drivers on driving on Georgia roads and highways. Our licensed instructors can use the steering wheel and pedal on the passenger side to safely aide the student and ease their learning process.
The DriveABLE On-Road Evaluation by Taggart's Driving School
The DriveABLE On-Road Evaluation (DORE) is a scientifically developed on-road evaluation that tests specifically for decline in the cognitive skills needed for safe driving. Unlike other on-road tests, the DORE tests for cognitive impairment and not bad-habit errors that are common amongst experienced drivers. State-licensed Taggart's instructors/examiners have received special training and are authorized to provide the DriveABLE On-Road Evaluation.
Your group did an assessment of my father’s driving ability several years ago. Not only did it provide accurate information for my father’s doctor, it also let his family know that he really should not be behind the wheel. We were aware of his inability but could not convince him on our own. – Barb W.
