BEHIND THE WHEEL
All driving lessons are private (one student and one instructor). These can be scheduled seven days a week between 7am and 10pm, and are designed to meet the needs of each individual student. Our instructors offer free pickup/drop off within 20 miles of our main office in Chamblee/Brookhaven for each lesson and return you at the end of the lesson. There is a travel fee for locations further than 20 miles. You also have the option to meet at one of our locations in lieu of home/school/work for no extra charge. Please understand that behind the wheel training is administered by appointment only; it is subject to availability and scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. If you have any question or concern and to schedule lessons, please call our main office at (770) 454-9100.
Students MUST have a valid Learners Permit in order to take Behind-The-Wheels lessons.

Road Test On-Site Option
All students (adults and teens) who complete a minimum of six hours behind the wheel with us successfully may choose to take the state road test for a GA driver's license directly with us. The road test can be added on to any package of six hours or more below for a discounted rate. If you choose to take the test later, it will be at the normal rate and you will register under road test.
Our driving lessons are designed to not only teach teenagers and adults how to drive, but to also address unique individual needs. We have extensive experience in working with nervous students, senior citizens, students diagnosed with ADD, stroke victims, individuals with macular degeneration who use bioptic lenses, mentally and physically challenged students, individuals who have sustained head injuries, hearing impaired students, as well as students on the Autism spectrum. Our patient, understanding instructors always have the best interest of the student at heart.
International students of all ages have also taken lessons at Nathan's to not only learn to drive, but also to adapt their skills to Atlanta traffic. Foreign students who have moved to Atlanta from countries where driving is done on the left side of the road find it easier to adapt to driving in Atlanta safely after taking lessons from our trained professionals. We also allow a translator to ride during the lesson if needed. We can also provide recommendations to your employer if they request knowledge of your driving abilities.
