Driveway quote questions

Started getting quotes for a driveway replacement.

Not getting into $$$, I have more questions about what should be done.

My first quote quoted a 6" stone base and 2.5" of asphalt

Is that adequate? Should I be looking for a thicker stone base or more asphalt?

Thanks in advance.

Your needs depend on what kind of traffic will be on the driveway. If it is a short driveway where you just pull in and park, you won't need as much base compared to a long driveway that delivery trucks will be traveling up and down. I found these two links that will be helpful:
