Program for Adults

Adult Program


Students 18-20 must have completed a 6 hour adult driver education course if they did not take driver ed in high school. We offer these classes at several of our locations and on-line.

For driving, all adults will receive private driving instruction based on their own personal needs. Lessons are given in an Adams vehicle, which is dual-controlled and safety inspected weekly. Adams' instructors are full-time professionals who are very patient and very understanding. And we offer free pick up and drop off for all behind-the-wheel lessons.

Because we teach more students how to drive than any other driving school in Illinois, our teachers really are experts at working with people who are nervous about learning how to drive.

There are no contracts to sign. Students are under no obligation to take any certain number of lessons. They take only the number of lessons they personally need to become safe and confident drivers. And, when ready, the student will take the road test in the same car in which they were trained.

Driving times are available from 7:00am to 9:00pm daily, weekends and holidays included at no extra charge. Students will pay as they learn directly to the instructor at the beginning of each lesson by cash, check, VISA, MasterCard or Discover.

All training will begin in a low traffic area. Here the student will become comfortable behind the wheel as learning to make turns. And then, as confidence is gained, the instructor will take the student out into heavier traffic, onto the expressway, and before long for the road test.

No permit? Ask about our affordable permit package which includes a trip to the Secretary of State to get your permit and 6 hours of instruction.
Learning to drive is easy and fun. Just give us a call to get started right away!

We just wanted to say what a great teacher Wally is. He really is magnificent.

Jamie passed her road test with minimum lessons. Wally is patient and knows how to explain everything clearly. We will be recommending you to all of our friends.

Many Thanks
Kind Regards


Hi! Last week I passed my drivers exam (Yayyyy). I owe to all to Rich. I don't know what I would have done without him. I now have my independence which most people have 45 years my junior. These simple words cannot say enough. Thank you for your patience and kindness.


Dear Casey,

I am writing this letter to praise your driving instructor, Bob.

Bob recently gave me lessons to advance my driving skills. At all times he showed exceptional skill in teaching me. He is knowledgeable, patient and provided great advice about how to manage situations. After completing my instruction with Bob, I was able to drive on the highway for the first time.!

I am very grateful to Bob ? he is an excellent teacher.
