Chamisa School of Driving is a family owned business, with schools in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Española. We have been making New Mexico a safer place to drive for over 30 years!
Our Albuquerque school is located at Coors & Tower in Chavez Plaza (just south of Bridge).
We serve students from area high schools, as well as adult drivers who have relocated to New Mexico from other states, and other countries. ¡Hablamos Español!

Students need to be 15 years of age to take the class.
We're fully certified and credentialed with the state of New Mexico. All of Chamisa's instructors are certified teachers with the New Mexico Public Education Department.
The course fee is $325, this includes tax and BOTH MVD exams. We are certified to do MVD Written (Computer) and Road Exams. These exams are included in our course!
When you compare us to other DE Schools, inquire about the exams! Don't be fooled by so-called discount plans; most schools charge additional fees for MVD exams and tax, raising the cost significantly above the 'first impression'.
We chose to be transparent... $325 includes tax AND BOTH MVD exams.
During the school year, classes are from 4:00 to 6:30pm, Monday-Thursday. During the summer months, classes are from 10:00am to 1:00pm. Students need to bring their birth certificate and social security card. Once registration is done, we will start with class, so notebook and pen for notes will be needed.
We hope this has answered most of your questions! And yes…. You can pay in payments, a minimum of $100 is required to start the course, just keep in mind that we are not allowed to give any MVD exams until the balance is paid in full.
Note: We provide MVD Road Exams and MVD Written (Computer) Exams, for non Chamisa students & to the public. MVD Computer Exams are $35, MVD Road Exams are $35 (an additional $10 to use our vehicles). Just click the blue button to schedule!
