Frequently Asked Questions


There is no magic number of prescribed driving lessons. However, the RI-DMV does mandate a minimum of 50 hours of practice of which 10 hours are at night. NCDS does endorse this measure and also recommends as much practice as possible in as many different driving environments. The more practice the better!

Although there is no set number of lessons, we do offer an hourly rate and package deals. NCDS does adhere to the wishes and desires of most automobile insurance companies. The minimum package starts with six hours. NCDS works very hard with each client in order to make them a confident and safe driver.

The easiest method of contacting us is by calling (401) 612-6237 or sending a text to that same number, (please remember to include your name in the text message), or you can also email us at info@newportcountydrivingschool.com. NCDS operates seven days a week morning, afternoon, and evening to be flexible for our client's needs.

First, NCDS will conduct an evaluation to try and determine what the client is going to need. In order to be a good driver and pass the road test, a collaborative effort between the client, their parents, and that staff at NCDS must occur. Every client is different and some require a minimal number of lessons while others may require more. NCDS works with the client's strengths and weaknesses, anxiety/stress level, confidence level, and goes over all the necessary skills for the RI-DMV Road Test.

The RI-DMV requires that those applying to take the road test have the necessary skills and confidence to operate a motor vehicle on Rhode Island Roadways in a safe and effective manner. NCDS is completely knowledgeable in all areas needed for our clients to be successful and pass the RI-DMV road test.
