Welcome to Better Driver's Driving Education.

**Guam DMV recognizes and approves our driver education course**

To sign up for the online course, you'll need to click the link below and fill out the account information. The account is the STUDENT'S INFORMATION. So create the account in the student's name, with the student's email address. Payment at the bottom will say "PAY WITH PAYPAL" and when you click the button it takes you to the PayPal payment page. If you don't have PayPal you have the option of creating a PayPal account or pay by using a credit card. If you have any problems with paying online you can call our office and make card payments over the phone, or stop by and pay in person. Once payment is made you'll get a welcome message in your email that says you've been enrolled. You will create your password and you'll be using your email and password to access the course.

The course is 100% self paced, meaning you can be online on your own time. You can do the course as fast or as slow as you'd like. And it's reviewable! So this means you can go over the chapter lessons and tests as many times as you need to understand the material. A PDF of the handbook can be downloaded and read online or printed out if you have a good printer. If you'd like a hardcopy of the handbook you can stop by our office to pick up a copy once you've registered. Certificate of completion can either be mailed out, or you can arrange to pick it up from our office.

  • Class: (in class or online, same price) $90 for unlimited classroom instruction (We will help you until you get a permit) We take cash or check for payments, and can now also accept most credit/debit cards. Online course payable online via PayPal with credit card option. You can also arrange to pay in person at our office or over the phone CC payments.
  • $100/2 hours for private lessons for beginners or advanced defensive driving. You will need to do more than 2 hours if you are a beginner driver. So budget for more hours. This lesson is reserved for students who did class with us. 
  • $90/2 hours for people who know how to drive. You must demonstrate the skill and knowledge to pass the driving test. This lesson prepares you for that. This is recommended for students who have done at least 30 of their 50 hours of required practice driving with their designated driver.
