                      PARENT TAUGHT PROGRAM

Our students are at an advantage over online courses due to one-on-one instruction in a live, interactive classroom setting. We talk with students not only about driving rules and technique, but about responsibility and the duties of driving.

Student participation in a live class helps make sure they are doing the work themselves and succeeding. We often hear parents speak of online programs but many are never sure their child actually did the work themselves or are even working on the program.  Drivers should be accountable. That is what we hope to instill in our students. Not just the material they are required to know.  Your student will take all the test required in the course, not someone else doing it for them.

We are locally owned and operated. We are professional teachers and driver ed. instructors, here to answer your questions and maintain our Lufkin office to provide you support. You can drop in or call us on the phone and actually get real answers to your questions.

Our classroom teachers are all college graduates, who are also certified in drivers ed. instruction.

We work hard to prepare students to drive in an ever increasingly dangerous and fast- pace environment, with superior classroom instruction and hands-on Behind The Wheel training.

Our next 32 hour classrooms will start on June 3rd at each of our locations. Class is held for 17 days. Call us at 936-634-9259 for info and to reserve a seat. Students may attend any classroom location and we require a minimum of 15 students per class.


Upon completion of our 32 hour classroom course, your student will take the Texas D.P.S. written test with us in the class. You will then take your child to the DPS office to be finger-printed and photographed, and to take an eye exam to receive their beginners driving permit. We provide a Last Day Letter to help you through the process. At that point, they may begin the behind the wheel portion, also known as Phase 2 of drivers ed..  Schedule with us for the 14 hour Behind the Wheel curriculum in one of our certified cars, with a certified instructor at the time you register for a classroom, or any time your ready.  We take care of the details of paperwork, as well as the Behind the Wheel instruction if you choose us over parent taught.

Carlton Driving School contractually provides drivers education for the following area high schools. Students from any school or home schooled are welcome to attend any location. Call us for details.
