We are open for business and enrolling new students!

With more than 40 years of experience, Faulkner’s Driving School sets the highest standard of excellence for teen driver education in the Charlotte area. Unlike other schools that simply teach what is required to pass the driver’s test; we create a foundation for a lifetime of safe driving. By taking the time to understand the unique needs of each individual student, we are able to provide a focused, tailored instruction to help your teen grow into a confident and cautious driver. Our instructors are licensed and bonded by the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, and have the experience and resources to work with even the most fearful teen drivers, as well as those with special needs.

We Work With Your Busy Schedule!

All Classroom lessons are In-Person

At Faulkner’s Driving School, we know one of common obstacles facing teen drivers is scheduling! Yup, we know, life is BUSY! With this in mind, we have created a flexible program to meet everyones needs. We offer (3) teen driver programs, all with flexible scheduling options to fit your teen’s busy schedule:

  1. Any Two Weekends (Fri-Sun): Attend sessions on any two weekends, featuring Friday (4-7 pm), Saturday (8 am - 2 pm), and Sunday (1-7 pm).
  2. Any Three Weekends (Sat-Sun, plus one Sat or Sun): Enjoy flexibility with any three weekends, including Saturday (8 am - 2 pm) and Sunday (1-7 pm), plus an extra day on either Saturday or Sunday.
  3. Saturdays ONLY: Opt for the convenience of 5 consecutive Saturdays (8 am - 2 pm).
  4. Sundays ONLY: Alternatively, choose 5 consecutive Sundays (1 pm - 7 pm).

For our summer sessions, we provide classes that run for an entire week. When choosing dates, please ensure you select all the days within a week. This applies to the months of June, July, and August.

Remember, weekends can be non-consecutive, providing additional scheduling flexibility.

*You may sign up today and start this weekend or the weekend that you have selected. Driving hours[we have two maybe three months backlog. If you are 14.5, you will have no problem. We will guarantee that you will complete the classroom and driving before your 15th birth date!
