Driver Education Information

General Information

The driver education program is Brown’s oldest program originating in 1996. This program has been very successful because of the professionalism of great instructors, scheduling availability of drive times and a classroom program that is serious, yet fun.

Our state-certified Driver Education program begins with 10 hours of classroom instruction at one of our 4 convenient locations. This is followed by 6 hours of one-on-one behind-the-wheel instruction  (3 drives of 2 hours each) with one of our 30 professional trained instructors. This is the basic requirement for the completion of Driver Education.

To obtain the Learner Permit, students have two options;  after completing class they can take the written test at DPS or complete our basic program (10 hours classroom and 6 hours driving) and the state written test can be waived.
Students will receive a Driving Instruction Report by email the day after every drive. Brown’s is the only school in the state offering comprehensive reports for parents and/or students to track their progress.



Brown’s offers the state certified driver education course as well as the state driving test.  Your registration will enroll you in the drivers education course, and with a call to Brown’s office you can schedule the driving test. You can call our offices to enroll or register online. Our website portal also allows for scheduling drives once students have completed the classroom portion of our program. 

Urgent Learner Permit Information

  • GREAT NEWS!….the quickest way to get a Learner Permit with no appointment
  • Complete the 10 hours of class at Brown’s
  • Take the written test at an Oklahoma Vocational Center
  • Take the written test results, the Brown’s contract, and your I.D.’s to the Department of Public Safety
  • The Oklahoma City Mega Center will close permanently December 10, 2021

If you are in a hurry to get your Learner Permit, and you choose to take the written test at the Department of Public Safety,  DPS appointments are currently 6-8 weeks out.  Rushing to do your 3 drives at Brown’s will not shorten that wait time.  Pushing to do your 3 drives immediately will not help you get your Learner Permit  more quickly if you choose this method to get the Permit.  We are all dependent on how quickly DPS can process applicants.  Be patient during these difficult days.

Scheduling Drives

Students come from all over the state because of our ability to handle varying schedules. The power of over 30 instructors and 20 to 25 cars sets us apart.  Daytime, evenings or weekends are offered for in-car training 7 days a week.


  • Drive times can  be scheduled through the Schedule A Drive on our website after the 10 hours of class is completed, or students may call the nearest Brown’s office to schedule drives.
  • Brown’s is always 2-3 weeks out on available drive times.
  • Important: Due to the Pandemic many students have put off their drives, and many are trying to do drives at the last minute.  So we are overwhelmed with requests.  Our priority  is driving students with Permits who are soon eligible to do the driving test.
  • We pick up students at home, school, Brown’s offices, and special meeting locations for students outside our driving area.
  • Parents of students under 18 must sign an affidavit when getting a Learner’s Permit agreeing to ride with teenager for 50 hours of driving (40 daytime, 10  nighttime).  The 50 hours of drive time must be completed within 6 months or by the time they turn 18.  We strongly recommend students drive daily at home.
