Driver Education Information:

At Advanced Driving Academy, we offer training programs for the Michigan Graduated Level 1 and Level 2 Learner's License. If your child is under 18 and has never held a license of any kind from another state, then their first step is the Segment 1 course.

Segment 1

The segment 1 course is comprised of three parts:

  • 24 hours of classroom instruction.
  • 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.
  • 4 hours (minimum) of driving observation
Aside from the classroom and behind-the-wheel driving requirements, the student must also score a 70% or higher on the 80 question written exam, given to each student at the end of the class. If all requirements are met, the student can receive their Level 1 Learner's License.

We know parent's may be feeling a little anxious about enrolling their student into driver's education. That's why at Advanced Driving Academy, we ask all parents to attend the first day of class. Allow us to answer any questions you may have, alleviate any fears, and explain to you the course structure and driver's education roadmap.

The student must be at least 14 years and 8 months old before the first day of class.
The student must bring their birth certificate or passport to the first day of class.

Segment 2

After the completion of Segment 1, the student's next step is the Segment 2 course. This course is only three days long and is purely classroom instruction. Each class is two hours and there is a 20 question written exam on the last day. The student must score a 70% or higher on the exam to pass the course.
Students may register for Segment 2 90 days after they are issued their Michigan Graduated Level 1 Learner's License. Additionally, students must present their driving logs and show that they have accumulated 30 hours of driving, with at least two hours of nighttime driving.

Driving Skills Test

Once a student has completed Segments 1 and 2, or is over 18 years of age, they are eligible to take the Driving Skills Test. Students under 18 years old must present their driving logs showing that they have accumulated 50 hours of driving, with at least ten hours of nighttime driving. Additionally, students under 18 years old must also present their Level 1 license (must be original copy and have been held for at least six months) and their segment 2 certificate (a digital copy or photocopy is acceptable). All customers over and under 18 years of age must have vehicle registration and proof of insurance for the vehicle they will be testing in.
