Why are we different?
We go above and beyond the minimum DMV Requirements
Our classroom, behind the wheel and advanced skills program, as a package, is rated #1 in California by the National Driving Instructors Institute.
With one on one instruction and no other students in the training vehicle, we can insure your son or daughter’s safety – not only for their well being, but for your peace of mind. Preparing them for the uncertainties of driving is critical. This on-street driving course will provide your teen driver with the skills necessary to be a safe defensive driver. Students will receive their DMV Certification of Behind the Wheel training completion after finishing all 3 sessions of this class.

Parents Play a Key Role
One of the keys to this five star rated program is our interaction with the parents. We give parents the tools they need to understand their student’s driver education process. Parents receive lesson plans they can use while working with their student to help them better understand the practical applications of the driving process. Our parents are better informed and therefore better equipped to assist in their son or daughter’s education process.
Know it or not, you have been teaching your son or daughter since their very early car seat days. You’re the best role model they have so get involved and stay involved. If you don’t watch out for your new driver, who will? Together we can work to keep them safe on our streets and highways.
