The first step to getting your license. Our segment 1 is designed to get you from zero to sixty in three weeks through a combination of classroom theory and time behind the wheel. All of our classes are taught using state of the art classrooms and interactive teaching styles to maximize student participation. For everyones safety, all of our cars are equipped with cameras.
What You Can Expect
Two hours a day, Monday through Thursday, for three weeks
Behind The Wheel
Students will complete six hours of behind-the-wheel drivers training. No more than one hour per day (by law).
Students will perform four hours of in-car observation.
1-on-1 Training Available
If you'd like an even more personal experience or just need some extra time behind the wheel, Century is happy to work with students 1-on-1 for an additional fee.
Pick-up and Drop-off Available
If you like, we offer a pick-up and drop-off service for the scheduled in-car driving lesson for an added fee of $99.00 if you live within 10 minutes of the class location.
- $349 ($50 non-refundable, non-transferable registration fee). Prices may vary based on location.
- 14 years and 8 months of age**
- Parent's permission
**Students age 14 years and 8 months are welcome to take the Segment 1 course, but are unable to get their their Michigan Graduated Level 1 License until turning 14 years and 9 months. If a student takes the class at 14 years and 8 months, they will receive their certificate after the Segment 1 class. Upon turning 14 years and 9 months, students can bring their certificate to the Secretary of State to receive their permit.
After segment one completion you can apply for your drivers permit
You will need:
- Certified Birth Certificate/Passport
- Social Security Card/Tax Document
- Utility Bill with Parent's Address that matches the living address of the teen
- Parent's Driver's License/ID card
- To pass an eye exam
Once you've earned your Level 1 Learner’s License, and are feeling comfortable behind the wheel, it's time to start thinking about signing up for Segment 2, a state-required class designed to teach students defensive driving techniques and review materials taught in Segment 1. By law you have to wait 3-months from receiving your Level 1 Learner's License to take the class, but we recommend waiting to take Segment 2 until two months before you plan to take your road test.
What You Can Expect
Short and Sweet
Segment 2 is only 3 consecutive days of driver's theory (Don't worry, we make it more fun than it sounds).
Unlike Segment 1, Segment 2 only requires 6 hours of classroom instruction, so you don't have to worry about scheduling driving times this time around (not that you worried about that).
Make The Grade
Once you put in the time and pass a written test, you will receive a Segment 2 Completion Certificate, AKA your ticket to taking the Road Test.
