Praise for our new Drive Smart Georgia location:
Drive Smart Georgia is the ONLY driving school in Atlanta to specialize in teaching teens how to drive. “We are passionate about teaching young people,” explains Co-Founder/CEO Kirk Bressette. “That’s why we don’t offer a DUI program. We made the right decision to concentrate on teen drivers and we are the only driving school in the city to do so.”
Alan Brown, the driving force behind Joshua’s Law, agrees and endorses the new Drive Smart Georgia location. After losing his son in 2003 due to a car accident, Mr. Brown turned his grief into a personal crusade. He lobbied the Georgia Legislature and got Joshua’s Law passed in 2005. Since then, Joshua’s Law has saved thousands of lives.
Concerning Drive Smart Georgia, Mr. Brown states…
I’ve had the opportunity to work with driving schools all over the country. One thing is for sure – they all are not the same. Drive Smart Georgia is the best driving school I’ve ever seen. They truly care about keeping kids safe on the road.
Services at our new Drive Smart Georgia location:
Services at our new Drive Smart Georgia location will include a state-approved Driver’s Ed program for teens that meets the rigorous requirements of Joshua’s Law and in-car driving lessons for teens and adults. We also offer a super convenient on-site road test to avoid the hassle of the DDS for students who take the 30-hour class and 6 hours of in-car driving lessons.
