Private Lessons

Private Lessons

S.O.D.E., Inc. offers private, behind-the-wheel instruction for those 15 years old to adult (with valid Learner’s Permit or License). 

Our instructors provide one-on-one, intensive, personalized behind-the-wheel training for individuals interested in obtaining new skills or rebuilding skills after an illness or accident. We encourage a family member who is a licensed driver*** to ride along in the vehicle so that they can reinforce the skills that the student is learning from our instructors and then practice those skills which will reinforce the required skills.
*** A licensed driver must be at least 21 years old and have had their license for 3 years.


Private lessons are $100 for one hour & $130 for one and a half hours.  Lessons begin at various locations in the valley.  Please call the office for current locations.

The full payment is required at the time of booking the lesson.  You can pay by debit/credit card by going to our ONLINE PAYMENT portal.  If you would prefer to pay by check, make the check payable to S.O.D.E., Inc.   You will need to mail the payment to our PO Box and payment will need to be received prior to the scheduled appointment.

Community Agencies 

We frequently train individuals one-on-one from community agencies, such as LOGOS Charter School, the Department of Human Services (DHS) & Vocational Rehabilitation Services to ensure drivers are successful.  Private lessons will allow one of our certified driver education instructors to focus on the foundational driving habits that you need for a lifetime of safe driving.
