COVID-19 Update

What are People saying about DDA?

"Jerry, 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"

Important Info about 6/5/20 Reopening, our
& COVID-19 to all DDA Students,
Customers, their Families & our Community.

On May 22, 2020, the Governor announced that all remaining PA counties will move into the yellow phase on Friday, June 5, 2020. Therefore, DDA will resume driving lessons and license testing on the same day. Over the next few days our staff will contact and reschedule customers who were cancelled because of the shutdown first. Then, we will contact and schedule all customers who made purchases during the shutdown. On Wednesday, May 27, 2020, we will allow all customers to go online to select their own dates and times through our self scheduling system. Thank you for being patient, especially those DDA customers who have been waiting to reschedule since the shutdown in March. We finally made it!!!

In the meantime, we encourage our customers to take advantage of DDA's SUMMER SALE before the deadline this Sunday at midnight. Any lessons, programs or license tests paid for now will be scheduled in the order they have been purchased. DDA is usually scheduled out 3-4 weeks, so take advantage of our SUMMER SALE and you will be next in the que to schedule.

The safety and well being of all of our students, employees, their families, and our Community is our primary concern at DDA. Once we reopen on 6/5/20, DDA will make sure our employees, students and cars are safe, and we will monitor employee temperatures daily. Before and after each lesson and license test, our DDA cars, door handles and all controls will be thoroughly wiped down and disinfected. Additionally, DDA Instructors will use hand sanitizer before and after every lesson and test, and every student will be given the opportunity to use hand sanitizer before and after as well. Instructors and students will be required to wear masks during lessons and tests. Furthermore, unlike most new and existing vehicles on the road, DDA cars will continue to be equipped with more expensive HEPA cabin air filters, which eliminate mold, bacteria and viruses.

EXPIRED PERMITS: Permits that have expired between 3/16/20 and 7/31/20 have been automatically extended by PennDOT until Friday, July 31, 2020. Beginning Saturday, August 1, 2020, permits must be valid in order to administer the license test.

CANCELLATION FEES will be waived until we reopen on 6/5/20 for all students and families who have been forced to cancel their lessons and/or license tests due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

REFUNDS: Due to the mandatory shut down by the Governor, unforeseen circumstances beyond our control have caused DDA to be unable to issue refunds for lessons or license tests that have already been purchased. We apologize for this inconvenience but will be contacting customers over the next few days to reschedule.

MODIFIED LICENSE TESTING: DDA and local DMVs have been given permission to start testing again on 6/5/2020, but all license testing in PA will be modified and abbreviated until further notice. This means all examiners will grade tests by standing outside vehicles, so the road test after parallel parking will be very short. Therefore, take advantage of our SUMMER SALE now before the deadline Sunday at midnight.

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER DDA is here to help, and we look forward to everyone getting through these difficult and trying times soon. Over the next few days we will be contacting our customers to reschedule since we have been given the okay by the Governor to begin safely operating again. Thank you in advance for your cooperation, trust and patience. We finally made it!!!!

Stay well, be safe and wash your hands often,
~Your Friends at DDA

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!!!!


 Cancellations Fees are waived until further notice due to Covid-19 outbreak.

Unfinished or Un-used Senior Programs, lessons or hours above are non-refundable, never expire, and may not be combined with other DDA Programs,  Sales, promotions or offers.
