Want to learn the ins and outs of parallel parking? Need to know how to merge smoothly into the flow of Chicago’s busy expressway traffic? If so, then Nova Driving School’s parallel parking and highway driving lessons are for you.

Turning and Parking

Turning and Parking are skills that can be challenging for most new drivers. The ability to execute turns and parking maneuvers properly requires practice, good judgment and knowledge of traffic laws. Nova understands the importance of learning these techniques properly in a manner that will enable you to perform them safely. With dual Breaking equipped vehicles and our experienced instructors you will not feel scared as you learn to perform these maneuvers for the first time.

Winter Driving

Learn how to prepare your vehicle for winter as well as how to anticipate and react to dangerous road conditions with this winter-specific defensive driving course.

Information With Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan effective June 11th, classroom instruction will be "in-person" once again in select locations on June 14th. In-Person classes are scheduled at all locations beginning in July. Vaccinated students and instructors have the option to wear a mask during their class sessions and driving lessons. All non-vaccinated students and staff must continue to wear a mask as they have done during the last year. We will continue to clean and sanitize our classrooms and vehicles on a daily basis in accordance with IDPH guidelines. We are excited to welcome our students and look forward to a great summer!
