AT THIS TIME, WE ARE ONLY ACCEPTING ON-LINE CLASSROOM STUDENTS AT THE 71ST STREET LOCATION (7120 ZIONSVILLE ROAD, INDIANAPOLIS, IN 46268). DRIVES CAN BE DONE FROM THIS LOCATION ONLY, NOT THE AVON OFFICE. AVON IS NOT ACCEPTING NEW ON-LINE STUDENTS AT THIS TIME. ONCE ENROLLED YOU MAY NOT SWITCH TO THE AVON LOCATION.
SKILL WAIVER/ROAD TESTS ARE ONLY GIVEN TO COACH'S DRIVER EDUCATION STUDENTS. THIS IS A BMV POLICY.

NO ONE EXCEPT STUDENTS ARE ALLOWED IN THE BUILDING.
STUDENTS MUST HAVE THEIR VALID PERMIT/LICENSE TO DRIVE WITH THE INSTRUCTORS.

ALL STUDENTS HAVE ONE (1) YEAR TO COMPLETE THE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM. COACH'S DRIVER EDUCATION WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE STUDENTS RETURN PAST THIS TIMELINE TO COMPLETE THE DRIVER EDUCATION COURSE. IF A STUDENT IS NOT COMPLETED WITHIN THE 1 YEAR, THEY FORFEIT THE REST OF THE PROGRAM ALONG WITH THEIR DRIVER EDUCATION STATUS.
PAYMENT SHOULD BE MADE IMMEDIATELY WHEN ENROLLING STUDENTS IN CLASS TO ENSURE THE STUDENT HAS A CONFIRMED SEAT. STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT MADE PAYMENT WILL BE DELETED FROM THE ROSTER WITHIN 48 HOURS OR SOONER DEPENDING ON SEAT AVAILABLILITY.

PARENTS: PLEASE BE HERE TO PICK YOUR STUDENT UP ON TIME. OUR INSTRUCTORS/OFFICE STAFF ARE NOT AVAILABLE TO LOOK AFTER STUDENTS WHO ARE DONE WITH CLASS/DRIVE APPOINTMENTS AND YOU ARE NOT HERE. AS OUR FACILITY MAY BE CLOSED/LOCKED, THE STUDENTS WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO WAITING INSIDE THE BUILDING.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 15 YEARS OLD TO ENROLL AND TAKE DRIVER EDUCATION (THIS APPLIES TO BOTH ON-SITE CLASSES AT COACH'S AND ON-LINE CLASSROOM STUDENTS).
STUDENTS WHO TAKE CLASSES AT/THROUGH OUR OFFICES, YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR PAPERWORK (TO TAKE TO THE BMV TO GET YOUR DRIVER EDUCATION PERMIT) THE FIRST NIGHT OF CLASS. DO NOT WAIT TO GET YOUR PERMIT OR SCHEDULE/TAKE YOUR DRIVES ONCE YOU HAVE BEGUN CLASSES.
STUDENTS ALREADY HOLDING A PERMIT PRIOR TO TAKING CLASSES AT COACH'S - DO NOT SCHEDULE ANY DRIVES PRIOR TO COMPLETING YOUR FIRST DAY OF CLASS.
ALL STUDENTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO COMPLETE THE ENTIRE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM (30 HOURS OF CLASS + 6 ONE HOUR DRIVES) WITHIN 120 DAYS IF POSSIBLE.
THE 30 HOURS OF CLASSROOM AND 6 ONE HOUR DRIVES FOR THE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM ARE MEANT TO BE TAKEN AS CLOSELY TOGETHER AS POSSIBLE. STUDENTS SHOULD NOT SIGN UP AND COMPLETE THE 30 HOURS OF CLASSROOM WITH THE INTENTION OF WAITING UNTIL READY FOR THEIR DRIVER LICENSE TO DO THE DRIVES. PRACTICING WHAT IS NEWLY LEARNED IN THE CLASSROOM WITH AN INSTRUCTOR IS TO THE OPTIMUM BENEFIT OF THE NEW DRIVER.
