Model T Gift Announcement
Learn to Drive a Model T Ford…operated with 3 foot pedals (No Gas Pedal!), one hand lever, and two hand controls on the steering wheel! Secure a seat behind the wheel of an AUTHENTIC Model T Ford, built between 1908 and 1927 — right out of the Museum’s fleet of vintage vehicles — and drive 3 miles on paved roads within our historic campus with an experienced and enthusiastic instructor. This is truly a fun and memorable hands-on experience that’s perfect for multi-generational family groups, couples, corporate team building, or anyone who wants to take a step back in time and learn how to drive, or get a refresher, in one of the 15 million “Tin Lizzies” built by the Ford Motor Company over 100 years ago.

Classes are done in a round robin style alternating between a half hour of driving and a half hour of non-driving engaging history segments.

Please wear practical comfortable shoes for walking and driving. We cannot allow anyone to drive that is wearing flip flops, sandals, high heels, or large boots.

Because of the high demand for our Model T Driving School, student registration is non-refundable. If necessary, you may however, make a one-time request to change to a different class date and/or session time. This request must be received at least 14 days prior to the original class date purchased by calling the Museum at 269-671-5089 or sending an email to email@example.com. These changes are based solely upon class space availability and, pending approval, will require an additional $25.00 administration fee. Please note that classes are NOT cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
