Earning a driver’s license has long been a rite of passage for teens. Nova is pleased to offer both classroom instruction and behind-the-wheel driving lessons to teens throughout the Chicago area.

Nova’s program provides teen students with a thorough understanding of the Illinois Rules of the Road so that they are ready to take the instruction permit test at an Illinois Secretary of State facility after the fourth class session. Nova’s friendly customer service staff works with teens and parents to schedule behind-the-wheel driving lessons with our licensed, trained driving instructors at times that fit teen students’ busy schedules. Explore our website, visit our Facebook page, and come to 2036 N. Western Ave or 5503 S. Harper Ave to see why teens from public and private schools throughout Chicago choose Nova.

 

In order to obtain his/her license, the state requires every teen to have 30 hours in-class instruction with 8 hours behind-the-wheel, or 30 hours of in-class instruction with 6 hours behind-the-wheel and 6 hours of observation.

All of our Drivers Education Teen Programs include the complimentary National Safety Council Defensive Driving Course “Alive at 25”. Our teens will be receiving their NSC certificates in addition to Nova’s Certificate. North Side and South side promotions available in case you fall out of Zone 1. For these promotions call (773) 489-2712 for more details.

ADDITIONAL PRACTICE HOURS

50 Hours Practice: In addition to the 30 classroom hours and the 6-8 hours behind-the-wheel training, the law requires that all teens under 18 years of age complete an additional 50 hours of practice driving, 10 of which must be done at night. This will ensure that young people are more experienced behind the wheel, in a variety of situations, helping them to become better drivers. Since some parents do not have the time to assist their children with these additional hours we have 2 programs that will help (see below). Also please download the 50 Hours Practice spreadsheet so you can log those hours properly.
