I Drive Smart Fees:

NEW - I Drive Smart's "Smart Pay" Payment Plan!
You can now pay by Credit Card or Echeck (Direct Bank Debit) over four (4) equal revolving payments over four (4) months from the time of your purchase. Either your credit card or indicated bank account will be charged automatically stretching out your payments for a small convenience fee. This is available when you enter the shopping cart at checkout. Please note that when using the "Smart Pay" payment plan, students can start their in-class training immediately, but the behind-the-wheel training is released partially with each payment.

Refer-a-Friend Special: Buy any I Drive Smart Package and receive a $25 refund if you refer a friend who also purchases a package ($399+) from us. [Note: A package is either a Driver Education Package or a multi-session in-car training package.] Your friend can save $25, $15 immediately at the purchase and another $10 if he or she makes a referral. Your personalized referral code and details on the Refer-a-Friend Special will be contained in your purchase confirmation email. If you have any questions, please ring 855-IDS-COPS (855-437-2677) or email I Drive Smart.
