Registration for Model T lessons is currently on pause as we train additional instructors to increase capacity.
Have you ever wanted to learn how to drive a Model T? Here’s your chance! We are now offering lessons with experienced drivers using our Model T!
If you are an antique car enthusiast, interested in Model T’s or just looking for a unique experience, this program is for you! Over the course of four hours, you will learn the history of the Model T and early automobiles while also getting behind the wheel to learn all the different components of driving. We are “T-eeming” with excitement to have you join in our Model T Driving School!

- Coordination of hand and foot controls
- Additional driving tips and techniques

- A Model T Driving School lesson is $150 per participant and $25 for non-driving participants (with current membership). Participants must be 25 or older with a valid driver’s license and car insurance. Non-driver participant must be 21 or older. We can only fit a total of 4 individuals in the car, including the instructor, so note the driver/passenger limit of 3 total.
- Lessons are weather-dependent (an open-air, antique automobile), so there is a chance we may need to reschedule for inclement weather.
