Please keep in mind some of our classes start at the same time the store opens, so please check the store hours and ensure you are seated in the class at start time. Our instructors are required by law to cover a certain amount of material. If you are not present for the entire class, you will not be qualified for the permit(s). You may be turned away and asked to reschedule if you show up late.

You may reschedule your paid class once for free and then for $15.00 per additional reschedule within a year of purchase. Thank you for your support.

We look forward to seeing you for a great class!
