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 with License Testing

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!

© hour Behind-the-Wheel Lesson............................................................$140
DDA's Adult 2 hour lessons remain our most popular adult lesson because it's ideal for either a student that already has a test scheduled and is in need of maximizing learning time or a student who just wants to take it one step-at-a-time and is not sure how much time they will have to practice between lessons. This Adult2 hour lesson is ideal for adding instruction between our Consult, Prep and Test lessons. 
DDA Adult lessons do not always meet PA Dept. of Education teen insurance certificate requirements.  See what students are saying about DDA Coaches

Adult 2Hr Prep, Test & Car

Although elsewhere test day fees are over $200 - not at DDA!!!  We know the entire 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 helps to meet our experienced DDA coach on test day and use our smaller car 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 sometimes required.

  Adult 2Hr Prep, Test & Car SALE:   Must complete Adult Consult, Adult2 or DDA Triple Play to qualify.
