Wink Driving schools?

Hey everyone, My dad and I are both very interested in driving. We always have been. He is retiring in a year and wants to go to driving school. We've looked online but not many are listed. What is the best way for him to get started. We are in Utah and driving isn't as big here in the west as it is in the east so finding someone local to teach him is proving difficult. He would travel if he needed to. He and my mom love to visit new places.

He does have horse experience. He has owned riding horses for the past 10 years. It's kinda been "learn as you go" so he's not an expert but he's not a newbie either.

I really want to help him get something in the works since he's spent his entire life providing for our family. It's time he does something for himself.

This looks like a lot of fun and reasonably priced. I think they have it every year.
There is another one in Montana I saw a while ago, I will see if I can find it for you.

I found it! I do not know anything about either of these organizations except that they are members of the American Driving Society, and I have seen them around on different I-net sites and forums.

Thanks. I was looking at that one. I talked with my mom about it and I think they are going to plan one of their vacations there this year. Dad is pretty excited about it.

Which one? Montana of Washington?
I don't know how old you are but the one in Washington is free for drivers under 25. Don't know about any restrictions though.

The one in Montana. I'm 30 but I always laugh when I post about something for either of my parents because I think it makes me sound like a kid. They both liked the one in Montana because it's only about 7 hours from where they live and there is lots of horse camping around. They will take their riding horses with them and ride the trails when they aren't in driving school.

I have 2 minis that I'm taking to a trainer this summer to learn to drive. She is teaching me as well so we'll be a driving family by the end of the year. Something we've wanted to do for a long time!

Sounds like so much fun!!!

I can't wait to hear more about the driving school and your mini's driving.

My Mom drove and showed with me for several years, it was fun. She doesn't drive anymore, (can't get in and out the vehicle) but still loves going with me to watch and hang out.
