How do you apply for a private driving instructor?

My daughter just got her learner’s permit, but she’s really nervous about actually driving. Her school offers a driver’s education course, but she gets really shy around the other students. Is there a way to get a private driving instructor?

If you’re looking for some private driving instruction from a tutor, you have some options!
Most states have state-approved driving schools where you can have private driving lessons. Usually, these schools charge on an hourly basis, so you’ll have to decide what your budget is and how many hours per week you’d like to have instruction.
Another option is to find an independent tutor. While independent driving tutors may charge less than a state driving school, their qualifications may vary widely. Be sure to check the credentials of any independent tutor before hiring to make sure they’re a good fit. Your closest State Highway Patrol office may be able to put you in touch with private driving instructors as well.
