Helpful Driving Classes for Teens in Chicago, IL

Did you know that in the state of Illinois, you are able to enroll in a driver’s education program as early as age 15? So why not take advantage of this unique opportunity by signing up for driving classes for teens in Chicago, IL?

As a commercial driving school, Citizens Driving School is a certified provider of the Illinois Secretary of State ready to help you take the first steps towards getting your full driver’s license. Contact us to start getting the road and parking training you need to pass the test.

The License Process

How does it work? Well, teens at the age of 15 can obtain an instruction permit, which must be held for a minimum of nine months. Teens aged 16 or 17 can then earn their license if they successfully complete a state-approved driver education program, and pass the driver’s license exam.

In order to complete the program, teens must have:

A. 30 Hours of Classroom Instruction (online classroom available as alternative during this difficult time)
B. Six Hours Behind the Wheel Instruction
C. Six Hours in Vehicle Observation – or a Parent Can Choose an Alternate Formula to Waive the Six Hours of Observation Requirement by Adding Two or More Hours of Behind the Wheel Instruction

Our Available Courses

Currently, our teen program offers a sequential module course that requires students to complete 30 hours of classroom instruction within nine months after the first classroom session is attended. Our driving instructors hold these sessions every Friday from 4:00m p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our teen program covers:

  • 30 Hours Classroom (online classroom available as alternative during this difficult time)
  • 6 Hours Behind the Wheel and 6 Hours Observation 
  • Additional One-on-One Behind the Wheel Hours 
  • Road Exam at DMV
