After teaching 11,000+ drivers, we are thrilled to finally have a platform to share our experiences with concerned parents in Georgia and across the country.
It seems like yesterday, but five years ago, my brother and I opened our first location with a $15,000 loan from our parents. On a shoestring budget, we purchased most of our classroom and office equipment on Craigslist. Our first car was my Honda Accord from college. Our budget was small, but our dream was big – to transform the driving school industry!
Flash forward to 2014. Today we feel so grateful to have 30+ amazing employees who are passionate about teaching teen drivers, an eco-friendly hybrid fleet of 13 cars, and the largest training facility in Metro Atlanta. My brother and I recognized how complacent the driving school industry had become over the years. We were certain that we could utilize technology to create a more interactive and engaging experience for our students. Our plan worked. Business has never been better. Our reviews are excellent. However, we won’t rest on our laurels. We’re committed to changing with the times to reach even higher goals. That’s our promise to you.
More to come soon, so stay tuned!
