Our policy is that every student should have a highly educational experience in learning the life skills required to drive safely in today's traffic environment. We also subscribe to our industry's adage that a professional school will "Teach a student to Drive - Not just take them for a Ride". We apply this saying to both the classroom and behind-the-wheel training - to give the best instruction your money can buy.

Our School is a participating member of the following professional organizations:
