Driver's Education

District of Columbia residents who are obtaining a driver license for the first time will be required to take mandatory driver education in order to be issued a driver license from the District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) effective May 1, 2016. Any District resident who has never held a license and who does not have a learner permit issued before May 1st will have to enroll in driver education (Driver’s Ed)

Dexterity Driving School (DDS) offered Driver’s Ed in three different sessions: Regular, expedited and Private session. All sessions can only start if the minimum number of student has registered (indicated per session). In case you’re scheduled for a session and we do not have enough student to start the session, you will be notify at least 72 hours before the beginning of your session and with a list of session that you can be rescheduled to attend.

  • Regular: DDS regular session is divided into two. Weekly and weekend session. Weekly session runs Monday-Friday and weekend session runs on Saturday.
  • Expedited: DDS expedited session is designed for people who want to complete their Driver’s Ed faster than in a regular session. This session runs 6 hours per day (2 lessons) for 5 days and the schedule is flexible to registered students.
  • Private: Private session is designed for people who want to have their class alone or with their relatives and on their own schedule. Please be aware that the begin date shown at booking is just for registration purpose. This session is completely designed around your schedule and does not need any minimum to start.
