Please also review our free instructional materials for basic to advanced information on driving and preparations for the knowledge and road test exam. Our goal is to help new teenage drivers become safe, confident drivers. Our students are equipped with the knowledge and experience required to be collision-free and ticket-free in their driving.

38 hour course (reduces insurance premiums)
This course is 30 hours of classroom instruction and 8 hours of driving instruction. It will take 4 days to complete the classroom instruction. The driving is scheduled after the class is passed with an 80% or higher. When your child receives the 38 hour certificate, it is taken to the Office of Motor Vehicles to get a permit. Please note: minimum age is 14 years and 9 months to take the course.
The cost for the 38 hour course is $450.
WE KEEP EACH CLASS SMALL SO THAT THE 8 HOURS OF DRIVING DOES NOT TAKE A LONG TIME TO COMPLETE!!! PLEASE NOTE: STUDENTS WILL BE DRIVEN BASED ON AGE. OLDER STUDENTS WILL BE GIVEN FIRST PRIORITY!!!
Third Party Driving (Road Skills Test)
We are certified to give the driving portion of the test. Call to set up an appointment. The cost is $40 for the test.
The student will receive a FULL refund if a class is canceled by the St. Charles Driving Academy, LLC and can not be rescheduled. However, if a class is held and the student does not attend that class, or a subsequent class, the student will lose the $100.00 deposit. Every attempt will be made to enroll the student in a future class.
“This is an amazing program! The instructors make your feel comfortable and welcome and they help you with everything! I would recommend anyone that needs their license to come here! They can even give you the DMV test so all you’d have to do is go take your picture and eye exam!! I am very impressed! Thank you all for your help!”
“I called to set up my appointment today for the 14 hr class and it was so easy. They have great prices, and they get things done fast. They were very nice and easy to talk to. I felt comfortable!!! I’ll be in class tomorrow and I will definitely be referring my family and friends!!”

This is a bright spot in my day! These two guys are the best. Roger Folse and Kevin Robicheaux have a fantastic program. The students have respect and are well behaved.
