Teen Driving Program

Universal Driving School NJ - 16 Year Old Teen Driving Program

Teenage drivers in New Jersey must work through a graduated driver licensing (GDL) program to become fully licensed. As part of this program, 16 year olds must enroll in an approved driver education course and practice driving with a licensed instructor before being issued a provisional license.

At Universal Driving School of NJ, our State accredited program is for 16 year old teen driving students WITH a High School Blue Card (proof student has passed the written exam) and consists of; 1. Transportation to Motor Vehicles to obtain all the necessary permits, vision exam, plus 6 hours of training behind the wheel practicing parallel parking, Reverse, K-Turns, and driving in local traffic and on the highways

2. Upon successful completion, we will validate your driver's permit with Motor Vehicles, and we will schedule the appointment for the road test. ROAD TEST SERVICE IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE 16 YEARD OLD PROGRAM PACKAGE. 3. You will also receive a 6 hours driving school certificate. You may use this certificate to obtain a 5% discount on your automobile insurance.

Our services are all door to door. This means that we will pick you up and drop you off at home, school, or office, provided that your location is within our service areas of Clifton, Paterson, and Bergen. For your convenience we have English and Spanish speaking instructors.


Note. Students that do not have a High school blue card (proof student has passed the written exam) may prepare for the written test by using the NJ Motor Vehicle driver's manual or by accessing the internet web page located in our main page. Upon completion we will take the student to the NJ Motor Vehicle agency to take the written test. There will be in additional charge of $30 for this service.

Universal Driving School NJ offers driver training packages – bundles of our most popular services that help you save money while purchasing top quality driver training. Please note that the number of hours required to safely and confidently drive a vehicle is different for each student. Some students require a few hours of behind the wheel instruction, while others may need 8, 10, 12 or more to feel confident and comfortable in their driving skills.

For Parents

Teens represent the largest contingent of New Jersey drivers involved in crashes. They account for only six percent of the licensed drivers in the state and are involved in 13 percent of the crashes. Parents will forever wonder what they could have done differently to prevent the tragedy.

Car crashes are the leading cause of death for New Jersey teens. Most crashes are the teen’s fault – inexperience, excessive speed, distractions, poor observation, drinking or drugs. Some deaths are easily preventable, like using seatbelts. Some crashes will involve the deaths of others – siblings, friends, other drivers and their passengers. All deaths will be heartbreaking; some will shatter lives and marriages.

Universal Driving School of NJ is committed to lowering these statistics but we need parents to work with us. It is hard to overstate the importance of parent involvement to insure a safe teen driver.

There are three principal ways we believe parents can be involved:

  • Step 1 - Beginning today: Model Safe Driving Habits<
  • Step 2 - During the Instruction Permit phase: Practice, Practice, Practice
  • Step 3 - During the Provisional License phase: Set Rules, Monitor Driving and Enforce Consequences
