Creating safe drivers through classroom education!

New! Classroom Curriculum

AAA Classroom Instruction

AAA Driver Training now offers the mandatory 33 hour CCRI Certified Driver Education classroom training program for RI students looking to obtain their learner's permit, and ultimately their full operators’ license.

We offer flexible classroom schedules and special one week classes during summer break and school vacation weeks.

Rhode Island’s three-stage licensing process allows teens to gradually gain exposure to complex driving situations, easing them into driving over an extended period of time. The learner’s permit and provisional license stages are key steps.

Teens may begin classroom driver education when they reach the age of 15 years, 10 months.
