Mr. Jones' Driving Academy is
locally owned and operated by
Paul Jones, a retired police officer and Idaho Certified Educator who has worked in the Coeur d'Alene School District for the past fourteen years. Mr. Jones is also known as Coach Jones, with experience coaching high school football, baseball, and girls' softball. Paul Jones knows how to communicate and teach tomorrow's drivers, today.
We are a privately owned, top notch driving school offering state certified driver's education courses.
The courses are designed to teach correct attitudes about driving, as well as the operation of the vehicle and knowledge of driving laws. The student is required to get a score of 80% to pass the academic (classroom) part of the course. Driving and Attitude will be graded on a pass/fail basis.
CLASSROOM ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED ON ALL THE DATES ENROLLED. For classroom absences due to illness or emergency, a make-up class will be rescheduled and class work made up. Any no-show on a scheduled drive will require a make-up drive at the cost of $25.00 per hour.
Driving schedules will be distributed during the second class. On the average, students will be driving one to two times per week. I will do my best to work around your student driver's schedule.
The driver education permit does not allow a student to operate a motor vehicle at any time except when accompanied by a certified driver education instructor, in an approved driver education vehicle, until after they successfully complete the driver education course. Any verified observation of a violation of this rule is an automatic failure and drop from the course.
The course cost is $350.00 and consists of 30 hours of classroom instruction, 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction, and 6 hours of in-car observation over a 7 week period.
Payment arrangements are available.
If you would like to reserve a spot, please complete the registration form, absence agreement, and consent forms and return them along with your $50.00 deposit. When we receive your paperwork and deposit, the student's name will be added to the list. The deposit will hold the student's spot in the class.
While we enjoy directly teaching our students in the classroom, we understand that sometimes life's hectic schedule requires an option to the traditional classroom setting. We work with online instructors from Idaho Digital Learning Academy and with Driversed.com to complete your driver's education. All you need to do is sign up directly with IDLA or Driversed.com and when you visit the Department of Motor Vehicles choose Mr. Jones' Driving Academy for your in car instruction and observation. We are happy to help you in any way we can. Our cost for 6 hours of driving and 6 hours of observation which satisfies the State of Idaho requirements is $270.
