16 Year Old Program

Shore Points prides itself on outstanding customer service. We strive to meet the scheduling needs of our clients, as well as their instructional needs. Each student is assessed and evaluated throughout the 6-hour training course. Close monitoring and written evaluation allows for parent, student and instructor interaction with regard to necessary skills related to becoming a safe and responsible driver.

16 year-old program: 6 Hours Behind the Wheel

This course is designed for 16-year-old students for obtaining the NJ Student permit. This course provides 6 hours of training, which is required by the state of NJ. At the completion of the 6-hour program the student will acquire a valid student permit. This is valid for practice driving under NJ GDl regulations.

A driving school must accompany all New Jersey 16 year olds to DMV to obtain a student permit. Shore Points offers a service that includes round-trip service from home to the DMV, where the permit would be generated.
If the 16 year old has failed the written examination previously (or has not taken it), they can take the exam that day. If they passed the written exam in school they should have received a blue or green scorecard.

Shore Points will accompany the student at the time of the road test and provide a review lesson. The review lesson will go over the skills for the road test prior to the test.

An instructor will review every aspect and maneuvers for the test especially parallel parking. A detailed assessment of the students performance will be given upon completion.
