Many juniors have already obtained their driver’s license and those who haven’t done so (namely hesitant juniors, sophomores, and even freshmen) are eager to get their driver’s license sometime in the near future. For those particular students, My Turn To Drive School now offers local students a newer, more convenient testing option right here in Newtown.
Wanting to enhance customer service, PennDOT decided to authorize certain business partners to become eligible to provide driver's license testing services to the residents of Pennsylvania. After two years of pushing for approval, My Turn To Drive School was accepted into the program and became a certified third-party tester. The school specializes in teaching new drivers driving techniques and educating them on the rules of driving.
I recently obtained my license at the DMV about one month ago and was looking for a closer and easier option at the time. I spent nearly four hours there waiting for my turn to receive my license (not including my test) and nearly the same wait when I went there to get my permit.
Earlier, when I tried to reschedule my test, the PennDOT Driver License Centers was already booked for the next month. In fact, the PennDOT centers may be booked up to 3 months or more in advance, which makes it difficult for someone to get a license quickly. There are even stories of students having to wake up extremely early in the morning just to look for newly released appointment times online. Securing a time to test and reschedule exams among nearly a hundred other people at the driving center throughout the day is always a hassle.
Thankfully, My Turn To Drive School is the solution to both of these problems. As a third-party testing service, they offer the convenience of securing a testing time in a few days compared to a few weeks. They pride themselves on their outstanding customer service that actively helps students find a time to test. They are one of the only 5-star-rated driving schools in the region.
While there is no charge for taking a driving skills test at a PennDOT Driver License Center, third-party business partners like My Turn To Drive School charge a market-driven fee for administering the test. The fee to take the license test is $95 at their Bucks County location. All of their examiners are PennDOT-certified and the test itself is similar to what you would receive at a PennDOT center.
My Turn To Drive School also offers classroom instructions for students at age 15 with or without a permit. The school is certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to provide drivers instruction in Pennsylvania and has been doing so in other locations for many years. The school also offers behind-the-wheel lessons for students who are at least age 16 and possess a valid Pennsylvania learner's permit.
My Turn To Drive School provides service for several essential steps throughout the process of preparing and taking your driver’s exam. I encourage students who have not received their license yet to consider the convenience of skipping the DMV and testing much faster at an immediate location. You can begin driver's license testing at their Bucks County site at 62 Walker Lane in Newtown, which is located in the Newtown Business Park (close to Newtown Athletic Club).
