Classes/Driving

Important!

Under Connecticut law, students attending a driving school class must be at least 16 years of age. A student does not need a learner’s permit to attend a class, but must have a permit to schedule driving lessons. Teen classes are for 16 and 17 year old students, adult classes are for students who are 18 years of age or older. If you are not sure about the process to get a license, please click on the “Get Your License” header on this page.

Fox Driving School Offsite Testing

Fox Driving School, LLC offers road tests at our location at 67 West Main Street, Clinton. Per DMV rules this service is restricted to students who are either 16, 17, 18, or 19 years old on test day. For offsite tests, a DMV agent comes to our location and administers a road test in our vehicle. Testing starts at 8AM and is usually completed by 1PM. The DMV requires a minimum of 13 and a maximum of 18 students on test day. Tests usually last 15-20 minutes, and involve driving around Clinton and surrounding areas demonstrating safe driving and various skills. When the student completes the test they will be given the results by the agent. The student will then have to go to the Old Saybrook DMV a minimum of two days later to obtain the actual license. If a student does not pass the test, he/she must go to the Old Saybrook DMV to pay a $40 fee before being eligible to sign up for a new road test. Off-site testing is done by the DMV on weekdays, and is considered an excused absence from school.
Per DMV rules, students who wish to take their test at Fox Driving School, LLC, must have completed a minimum of a two-hour driving lesson with us to be eligible for offsite testing. If a student has previously completed at least two hours of in-car training with Fox Driving School, LLC, the fee for testing with us is $100, which is non-refundable. If the student has not done driving lessons with Fox Driving School, LLC, they must first complete a two hour lesson for $120. Students interested in our offsite testing program can call Mr. Fuchs at 860-501-5116, or just speak with the instructor if they are attending an upcoming class.
