When they turn 15!
Most students love the MVP package. It includes the Basic Drivers Education course (10hours of class/6 hours of driving) PLUS on the day of the drive test we will pick the student up, drive for an extra 2 hours to review, give the drive test in a Merkley's car and bring them back home with their license.
The supreme has a 45-1hour test prep meeting at the office with drop off after, and the MVP includes closer to a two hour test prep with pick up and drop off.
