Commercial Driving Schools

The Mission of Driver Education (Commercial Schools):
Driver education, provided by Commercial schools, prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices to insure personal safety to self and others on the road.

To Accomplish this Mission (offered by Commercial schools or Unified school districts):
Driver education courses are often more comprehensive and efficient than learning on your own or from a biased family member who may or may not have “good driving habits”. Driver education courses teach everything from the basics of traffic laws and traffic signs to defensive driving strategies. Endorsed driving instructor will teach the importance of Safety in addition to modeling good driving etiquette and providing experienced instruction. Instructors reinforce best practices – such as distraction-free driving, no texting, mandatory seat belt laws, and defensive driving habits. Many professions involve driving a vehicle to/from work or on the job. For this reason, it is the goal of driver education courses to put courteous, safety conscience, competent drivers behind the wheel.
