Private driving behind the wheel

If you need a little more time driving behind the wheel, 906 DRIVE will provide the wheel and the certified driving instructor. 1-on-1 driving lessons focus on what you need help in.

Adult Eligibility
Any person 18 and older that does not have a driver’s license MUST go to the Michigan Secretary of State office and obtain a Michigan Temporary Instruction Permit (TIP). This allows you to legally drive a vehicle with a licensed driver. If you need assistance getting the permit, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Rates
$60.00 / hour for behind-the-wheel instruction.
$50.00 / hour for classroom instruction.
*There is a two hour minimum for students outside a 10 mile radius of Escanaba

Schedule
Adult drives are scheduled by calling our office or registering on-line to have an instructor call you. Drive times will depend on your availability, our instructor’s availability and can be scheduled between 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., seven days a week.
