An Education You Can Be Confident In

The most effective driver's education course in Bangor, ME

If you're looking for a driving school to help you become a safe and responsible driver, turn to the experts in Driver's Education.

Northeast Driving School has been serving Bangor, ME and the surrounding area since 1969. Each of our instructors is Maine State certified to provide the best education possible. It is our goal for every student to succeed and we will do everything we can to help them become the safest drivers on the road.

At Northeast, we are offering courses in a hybrid format. This refers to the classroom portion of the course as some will be online and some in person. This format still requires 10 hours of behind-the-wheel driving.

The breakdown for the course is:
- 24 hours of classroom instruction via Zoom and Google Classroom
- 6 hours of classroom instruction in person (Classes 1 & 10)
including the written test in Class 10.
- 10 hours of driving behind the wheel. Driving hours are done outside of classroom hours. You will find the classroom schedule below. Driving hours are scheduled with students individually and are based on their driving availability throughout the week.

Our method

Our goal is to have all students excel in the course, pass their written exam and complete the 40 hours within 5-6 weeks. We understand, however, that each student is unique, and we work hard to adapt to each student's pace of learning the skills and concepts that are important to being a good driver. It is best when the classroom education is integrated with behind-the-wheel training. Students should be expected to drive 1-3 hours per week after the initial curriculum requirement is met.

Applicants must be 15 years old at the beginning of the first class (State Law). The total for the course is $575 and a non-refundable $150 deposit is required to hold your place in class. Tuition should be paid in full by the first class in the course. We do offer one payment plan (see Student Driver Course Policies). With Online Registration, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. If mailing a check or money order, send to 360 Harlow St., Bangor, ME 04401.
