Course Pricing

Why are your prices so much lower than the other online traffic schools?

As a leader in online driver instructions, we have consistently been the low cost leader. We developed and own our courses so we pay no middlemen or licenses fees. We maintain a low overhead. And we only promote our courses through the Internet. That way we pay very little in advertising. And thus - pass on the savings to you.

What does your course fee include?

Our course fee includes everything from taking the course to delivering you your Certificate of Completion. Our standard delivery (US Postal Service) is free of charge and is sufficient for a majority of our students. However, if you require express delivery, we offer several low cost options. Either way, we're confident that you'll find our prices to be the lowest on the Internet.

What about hidden fees?

We will never charge you hidden fees or tack on fine print pricing. In other words, what we advertise on our website is exactly what you pay - no hidden costs whatsoever!

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

We want to make sure you are completely satisfied so we offer a money-back guarantee. You must request the refund within 30 days of signing up and prior to taking the course's final exam.
