Our Philosophy

We believe that learning to drive needs to happen in a calm environment. We offer professional advice and help from state-certified instructors that know how to get it done the most practical and safest way possible. We help make driving lessons and licensing stress-free and create a fun learning environment.

Everyone is different, so each of our lessons are customized to best fit your needs and learning style. We have a flexible curriculum based around instruction that allows us to tailor each plan to maximize learning and the quality spent behind the wheel.

Lesson Structure

All driving instruction is private 1-on-1 with the student behind the wheel. Lesson duration varies between 2 hours and 1.5 hours. We conduct our lessons in modern, full-size vehicles that are state registered learning vehicles equipped with instructor brakes and mirrors.

About our core program curriculum:

Our core programs are the foundation of our entire curriculums. They are designed by our principle curriculum development team composed of law enforcement, performance driver trainers and Department of Transportation trainers. This program centers on development through three stages: car control, defensive driving, and predictive driving. Our core programs are ideal for those who are seeking to become comfortable, confident drivers on our Florida roadways no matter what situation they find themselves in. Safe driving skills and theories cannot be taught in one or two lessons. Our core programs are designed to instill safe driving skills in our students for life. This is the most comprehensive and complete driver training program in the country. Learn both defensive and predictive driving from the most experienced training staff.

Why you should still take driving lessons as an adult:

The driving lessons you take as an adult will help you take your driving experience and skills to the next level. Whether your aim is to get your first driving license or to become a better driver, driving lessons are designed to help drivers adopt safer driving practices.

We train our students on more than basic driving and passing the road test. We use advanced awareness techniques from the performance and racing world to help our students predict and prepare instead of watch and react. We pride ourselves in producing safe student drivers with an increased awareness of the situations unfolding around them on the Florida roads.

Keep Your Driving Record Clean

One big benefit of taking driving lessons as an adult is that they will help you maintain a clean driving record. Each time you get a traffic ticket, you should remember that there are points associated with the violation. The Violation Points increase faster and mostly they lead to things like revocation or suspension of driving privileges.

A large number of citations carry only one point although some serious ones can carry up to 2 points. If you accumulate four points or more within 12 months, you will be viewed as a Negligent Operator and you will risk losing your driving privileges. The same happens if you accumulate over 6 points within 24 months or over 8 points in 36 months.

To keep Violation Points off your driving record after you get a ticket, you should take traffic school to get rid of the ticket and to cancel the points. That is a huge benefit, particularly because most insurance companies use driving records to determine rates. Some employers also use the record to determine whether to hire someone or not. A clean driving record is vital.

Become A Safer Driver

You might have driven for many years, but there is a reason why driving lessons exist. They are there to help you make better decisions when driving. You can take refreshers from time to time. The lessons provide everything you require to become better safer driver on the American roads.

You should not wait until the day you receive traffic tickets to start taking driving lessons. You should take the courses to increase your safety when driving. Do what you would want your teen driver to do. That way, you will drive for many years.

Keep Your Auto Insurance Rates Low

Violation points can limit your chances of getting another job or heighten the chances of losing your driver's license. However, the same points can cost you money. The driving record is among the many factors that auto insurance companies use to determine the insurance rates.

If you have already accumulated many points, your potential insurer will see that as a sign of irresponsible driving and higher chances of getting involved in an accident. Even a single point on your driving record may highly increase the insurance rate.

And because points remain on your driving record for three years, you will spend many additional dollars during that time on your auto insurance. But the good news is, the citation will get masked from the auto insurance provider after you have completed driving lessons. Also, most insurance companies offer discounts to individuals with clean Florida driving records.
