Road Skills Evaluation Waivers

Paper Training Completion Certificates are no longer being issued by driving schools.

Results of tests and evaluations are recorded directly to AZMVDNOW. Results are recorded either as pass or fail.  A passing score is 80% or higher is required in order to receive a school issued waiver. 

The applicant must have a personal AZMVDNOW account in order for the results to be recorded.

When appplying for a driver license the MVD window clerk will have the information in the applicant's account.  

AZ MVD reserves the right to road test any person applying for a driver license.

Insurance Certificate
Students will receive an  insurance certificate after they have completed 3 or more hours of instruction. 

Present the certificate to your insurance company and it may qualify you for an insurance rate reduction. 

Many insurance companies also require that the driver complete an approved Defensive Driving Course prior to a  

rate reduction. Check with your insurance company. 

Restored 1973 Datsun 240Z. 

I began as a behind the wheel driving trainer in 1981 at Catalina High School and continued providing instruction on an off and on basis at Baboquivari and Sabino High Schools until 2006 when I retired from the classroom.

I discovered that in-car training was fun and rewarding because the students are motivated and excited about gaining their license.

Sonoran Driving School opened in November 2006. Since then I have trained hundreds of students.

Thank you for considering Sonoran Driving School.
