At Barber’s Driving School, you do not need a Learner’s Permit or any experience to start. We have friendly, courteous, and skillfully trained instructors who will make learning to drive a simple and fun experience. Barber’s is licensed in both Alabama and Georgia to conduct driver education courses. Each year, Barber’s teaches hundreds of adults of all ages to drive safely and helps them to earn their Georgia or Alabama Driver’s License. We offer free pick up and drop off for your behind-the-wheel training in Muscogee County; however, you must provide your own transportation for classroom training, if you chose a combination classroom and behind-the-wheel package.
Barber’s is a national award-winning locally owned private driver training school. After 56 years of research and development and with proven techniques, Barber's has engineered the art of collision prevention. We take a holistic approach to driver training, which includes training in all seven dimensions: Legal Knowledge, Mental Skills, Physical Skills, Communication Skills, Social Skills, Financial Awareness, and Planning Skills.
How Old is too Old to Learn to Drive?
It’s never too late to learn to drive! Our adult students can range from 18- 100 years old. No matter how old you are, if you can pass the physical, mental and vision requirements to obtain an Alabama or Georgia Driver’s License, we can teach you.
Step 1 Select the Package Right for You
Two Options for Attending Barber’s Adult Driver Education Program
First Option: You can sign up for a combination classroom (not required) and behind-the-wheel course. After you select the combination package of classroom (not required) and behind-the-wheel, Barber’s can administer the Georgia Road Test to you for your Driver’s License upon competition of the course. However, Barber’s is not licensed to administer the Alabama Road Test, but we can make arrangements for you to take your Alabama Road Test.
Second Option: You can sign up for behind-the-wheel-only classes. If you are a Georgia resident and you select the behind-the-wheel-only, Barber’s can administer the Georgia Road Test to you for your Driver’s License upon competition of a minimum of 6 hours of private driving. If you are an Alabama Resident, you will have to test at the Alabama DPS.
Barber’s behind-the-wheel-only packages start with a minimum of 2 hours and go up in 2-hour increments: the more hours you purchase, the better the price. You may also be interested in our Custom Driver Education. If you are already driving and only need help with a specific vehicle maneuver like parking, driving on interstate highways, backing, etc., you may purchase as few as 2 hours.
All driving times are by appointment in 2-3-4-6 or 8-hour sessions. We will pick you up and drop you off anywhere in Columbus, Midland, Ft. Benning and Phenix City.
We train 7 days a week behind-the-wheel, MON-SUN with appointment times from 8:00am until 8:00pm. All behind-the-wheel hours of private instructions are conducted in our vehicles. We operate only late-model, fully insured, dual-brake controlled Toyota Corollas.
Step 2 Select your Classroom Schedule
The 30 hours of classroom instruction are taught using a pre-determined schedule based on the curriculum. We have classes that meet on weekends only. Also, during holidays, we offer a condensed program that can be taken in 4 days. In the summer, classes are 4 days (9-5:30pm), each consisting of 30 hours. Please refer to our current schedules and select your class.
