Whether you are the parent of a teenager or a teenager yourself you can feel confident with our driving school, which is fully licensed as required by state law. Our instructors provide instruction to hundreds of students each year, and over 96% of our students pass their road test on the first try.

We offer a complete pre-licensing classroom program and state-approved behind-the-wheel program.

Driver Improvement

Adult drivers are occasionally required to take additional classroom and/or behind-the-wheel driving instruction. Further, adults will sometimes receive special financial benefits from receiving driving instruction. If any of these special circumstances below apply to you, please call or email us to see how we can help.

It is never too late to learn to drive or gather the experience and training necessary to become a better driver. Whether you are interested in earning your driver’s license for the first time or are inexperienced or rusty and looking to improve your skills, we have the driving instructors to help you succeed.

Even though it was a few years ago, I loved taking Drivers Ed from Dawn. So much fun and very educational! I’ll never forget it.

Great instructor, makes what you think would be a dreadful class a very enjoyable one!



I took the classroom driver’s ed and behind the wheel with Dawn. It is the best school in Virginia.
