DDA Adult Programs

What are People saying about DDA?
"Hey thanks for teaching Nicole not just the right way to merge onto the highway, but what to do when things get tricky. Yeah, I would have never thought to teach her that technique, but now I know what you meant when you said driving program vs. defensive driving program...

and by making her a right-of-way expert, her decision-making and confidence are so much better. You guys were great!!  I'll be sure to tell everyone about DDA."

 Adult Driving Lessons & License Test SALE!!

If you have a permit and nobody to practice with and you're tired of being dependent upon others - you're not alone! Thousands like you are getting their licenses every year and DDA is here to help. Our calm, patient, professional  DDA Coaches are men and women trained to take you comfortably through our step by step process and help you become a safe, confident, licensed defensive driver. DDA always goes the extra mile to customize based on each individual student's needs. When you're ready, we will teach you our famous parallel parking method, practice the test route until you're confident, and test you at our facility in Newtown Square (not the DMV.)  At DDA you won't pay over $200 on test day which is what they charge elsewhere!

Adult TestPrep 2 Hours includes License Test, Prep, Car & Coach..............$250.$199
For those who just need test related instruction and parallel parking practice, but do not need additional driving lessons, this Testprep lesson includes a full assessment and customized lesson focused solely on preparing you for your PA license test. We know the test better than anyone because we're certified by PennDOT to administer the license test at our Exton Pep Boys or Newtown Square test facility. It's nice to use our smaller car and have a DDA Coach to warm up, practice parallel parking and calm things down right before your test. Local DMVs sometimes experience delays, but DDA can schedule our car, coach and your test in just a few days so you can pass and get that PA license ASAP.
Transportation to and from our test facility is required.

Our SALE won't last, so Register before the deadline on  12/6/2020  and License Testing at our office is included with this Adult TestPrep lesson for Free !!!!!

Behind-the-Wheel Evaluation & Lesson.....................$160 $140

The option of a 2 hour evaluation will depend upon your Au Pair's work schedule and ability to practice between lessons. Doesn't it make sense to have DDA perform a comprehensive written assessment before an incident occurs? Contact us today.

Take a Free Practice PA Permit Test If you haven't been to the DMV to get your learner's permit, or you've been there a few times and had difficulty passing the computer knowledge test--it's okay. DDA is here to help!!! Just click on the PA Driver's Manual (to the left), and you can take a 25 question practice permit test which is very similar to the PA test. If you feel you need more practice questions, just Google "free PA permit test" and you can keep trying practice questions until you're ready to pass the real thing--GOOD LUCK!!!!
