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 purchase all 16-year-old Special learner permits. Shore Points will take care of all permit applications; there is no need for students to waste time at a motor vehicle agency. If the knowledge exam was passed in school they should have received an email or print out with proof of passing the knowledge exam.  If needed the knowledge exam can be taken at your Shore Points Driving School.
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.
