Update from Verd on COVID-19

With Covid-19, comes changes to AAAA Driving School for the 2021 sessions. The IDOT has granted online classes until August 31, 2021. I will be using Google Meets interactive format for the classes. The student must attend the class with me during the scheduled class times. The classes will be 6:00pm to 9:00pm Monday through Thursday and when on Friday 4pm to 7pm. The drive times will be 5:15am to 7:15am, 3:30pm to 5:30pm and on Saturday and Sunday 6:00am to 4:00pm. Drives will leave from my house at 6246 NW Blvd, Davenport, Iowa 52806.

We will be adhering to the CDC standards set forth by the IDOT. The students and teachers will be wearing masks, using hand sanitizer, and the cars will be sanitized between drives.

If driving brings concerns to you or your child, IDOT has given permission to complete the driving hours after the class.

A note from Verd for 2021:

The new rate for 2021 will be $425. Total payment is required before the student starts driving lessons during the session.

It has been 7 years since the last price increase. I cannot operate with a negative balance like other organizations. Please realize that over half of the revenue is paid out in wages for my employees. The class size for the online classes were large in 2020, but understand your child is attending the class in your home. The drives will still have two students per drive. Parents have listened, participated, watched presentations, and been able to see the driver class and material firsthand with myself being brought into their homes. The live teaching over the last year has been the most difficult teaching I have ever done.

The week prior to the session I will call/email to establish drive times and issue the Google Meets classroom code.

Parents please realize the more time you spend driving with your child before them taking Driver's Education will benefit them and you in the long run. I firmly believe that your child is taking the most important class in their high school career. The added stress of never driving before the first day of class hurts your child's psyche and could delay their driving adventures.

AAAA Driving School will offer additional drive times beyond the state requirement of 6 hours for your child, if needed, at a rate of $50 per 1 hour of driving. Drive times will be established after they have completed the regular scheduled driver education session. 

With AAAA Driving School being the last private small business offering driver’s education in Scott County, please realize that the sessions will fill up quickly due to supply and demand issues.  So please plan accordingly and reserve your child’s space early with a $100 deposit securing a space in the upcoming sessions.

The Iowa Department of Transportation is operating on a pre-scheduled appointments scheduling system for the taking the permit test and to convert your child’s permit to a school permit or intermediate license. Since Covid-19
began they are about 4 weeks out in appointment times.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 563-370-3778.
