    **Students wanting to take the DRIVING TEST can schedule an appointment to use our driving simulator, where they can practice driving without getting in a car. (We do NOT offer driving instruction in an actual car at this time). Appointments are based on room availability and translator availability. It is recommended that students come to use the driving simulator for at least two weeks, one hour per week to get the minimum experience needed to pass their test. After that, students can come back as many times as needed.

    To make an appointment, please send an email to or call 402-417-0683.
