Are driving lessons an "essential service"?
My son got his learner's permit in March, and would like to start practicing his driving with a parent, but the learner's permit isn't valid until you have your first lesson with a professional instructor, and I'm worried that might not be an "essential service." Does anyone know whether it is currently legal to take such a lesson in Contra Costa or Alameda Counties? (Also, the DMV says you can take your driving test only after you have "held" your learner's permit for 6 months. I hope that means 6 months from the date of issue, and not 6 months from the date of the first professional lesson! Does anyone know?) Thank you!
