The keys to success for Drive Smart Georgia

keys to success Drive Smart Georgia

Our teen drivers are our core customers. However, Drive Smart Georgia also teaches international and adult drivers. As always, our focus remains steadfast on safety.

We don’t just show students how to pass the test. We also strive to instill lifelong good driving habits. This principle and our willingness to change and grow with the times have been our keys to success for a decade.

As stated by D. Kirk Bressette, Drive Smart Georgia’s CEO/Co-Founder…

Safety on the road is our #1 priority. Because automobile accidents are still the #1 cause of death for teens between the age of 15-17, we want to do our part to keep our students safe on the road. It isn’t just about passing the test. It’s about staying alive.

The founder of Joshua’s Law endorses Drive Smart Georgia

Jpshua's Law founder Drive Smart Georgia

Alan Brown, a teen driver champion and the founder of Joshua’s Law endorses just one driving school – Drive Smart Georgia! Since its passage in 2005, Joshua’s Law saves approximately 15,000 young lives per year.

Here’s what Mr. Brown says about Drive Smart Georgia…

There are other driving schools around the state, but I endorse only one – Drive Smart Georgia. The curriculum is pretty much the same. It boiled down to people. These guys care. They love the kids and that’s why I support them.

Joshua didn’t do anything wrong. He hydroplaned into a tree at 40 mph. Do you know what to tell your kids when they hydroplane? When their tires run off the pavement, do you know what to tell them? I bet not.

I feel I let Joshua down. He needed help, but I thought he’d grow into it. Parents are not qualified driver’s education teachers.

Don’t fuss about the cost. What’s the value of your child? Pay the money and find them a quality driver’s education program. Save their life. Please. You don’t want to live in my world.
