Schedule your appointment

(updated September 9, 2020).

The safety and well-being of our students and staff is a top priority. Our name is HomeSafe after all. :-)  While closely monitoring the evolving situation and regulations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, HomeSafe made the appropriate decision to suspend all operations of behind the wheel appointments from March 20 - June.  In July, we began our re-opening process responsibly in accordance with Federal, State, County and City guidelines with new precautions and requirements in place (masks required, temperature check, hold harmlesss agreement, etc.).  We opened in a tiered approach with first priority to those students who were forced to reschedule, next to current students in process and now finally we are pleased to resume in adding new students to the scheduleThank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate this together. 

To schedule a lesson please start by selecting the correct category below:
