The training we offer for those 18 and older is a bit different from what we are required to provide for our younger students. The State of Oklahoma does NOT require that license applicants 18 and older attend classroom training or take any specified number of behind-the-wheel lessons. Therefore, we tailor your training to meet your individual needs.
How many lessons will be needed?
This may vary as each student progresses at a different rate or at a different skill level when they start their training. However most of our students are beginners and for these students we normally schedule a minimum of 3 sessions. We have discovered our greatest success with 18 or older is to choose one of the Driver’s Ed packages. Attending the classroom portion helps the learning process. Additionally, the more hours in the car with us the more successful you will likely be on test day. NOTE: If you choose to not complete a driver’s ed package (10 hour classroom and 6 hours btw minimum) you will be required to go to DPS to Test.
Your rate of progress will depend on a variety of factors including:
- Student Motivation
- Good Hand-Eye Coordination.
- How well you take direction.
- How closely you schedule your lessons together.
- And especially…how often you practice between lessons.
I’m not a beginner. I’m much more experienced and just want to take the road test. Can you help me with that?
Yes. If a student is certain they’ve progressed beyond the beginner’s skill level we schedule an evaluation (Individual) lesson to determine how best we can meet their specific training needs. The evaluation lesson serves two purposes. It allows the instructor to make a professional evaluation of what training is required while allowing the student to evaluate the performance of the instructor.
Do you offer pick-up and drop-off service?
Yes, we offer several driver’s ed packages where pick up and drop off are provided (Cowboy Classic, Cowboy Classic Espress, Cowboy Classic Premium, Cowboy Advanced and Cowboy Advance Plus, see details on register Page).
Can I take lessons on weekends?
Yes, we offer training six (sometimes seven) days a week. (We are closed Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.)
How much are the lessons and how do I pay for them?
See our Register page for more information.
Do you offer a study guide?
Yes, we provide multiple resources during the classroom sessions which the student has access to throughout their training phase. This helps to maintain continuity with our teaching techniques.
What does the training cover?
CDA training covers all city, suburban and highway driving situations as well as defensive driving techniques. Our goal is to not only prepare you to pass the licensing road test but to aid you in becoming a very skilled and safe driver overall.
Does your school help with road testing when I get my license?
Yes, all of our driver’s ed packages (with the exception of State Minimum) include up to an hour (or 90 minutes) of practice and a drive test in our car.
Do you offer training certificates?
Yes. At the end of your training you can receive a CDA Certificate, upon your request, stating the hours you have completed during the course of your training.
Can I cancel a lesson without penalty?
Yes. However, CDA policy states: “If for any reason you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, we require that you call Cowboy Driving Academy a minimum of 24 hours in advance. If 24 hours notice is not given, you will be charged the full fee for the lesson. In case of emergencies, documentation will be required.”
If I am scheduled to drive, how do I know if my in-car instruction has been cancelled due to inclement weather?
Inclement weather cancellations are communicated on the Cowboy Driving Academy Facebook Page.
Do you offer gift certificates for your programs?
Yes, we do. You will receive a colorful certificate with the student’s name and program of choice. Call today!
