Individual Driving Lessons - 7 Days a Week!

Whether you're a first time driver or just want to improve specific driving skills, we're here to help you get you ready for the road. All individual driving lessons are customized to the level of experience and specific learning styles of each student. For added security, training takes place in safe, dual-brake vehicles to help build skills while ensuring driver safety. Each driving lesson is 1.5 hours in length. All driver training is conducted from Suncoast Safety Council offices in Clearwater and St. Petersburg - extra charge for pick-up and drop off accommodations.

DMV Driving Test: Students will be picked up by a state-licensed driving instructor and taken to the DMV for their road test. After using our vehicle to take the test the student will be dropped off at home. Students must take at least one driving lesson with us prior to taking the test in our vehicle. Please call for more information.

Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccination Policy for Driving Lessons

For the protection of our students, we request confirmation of Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination before scheduling Drivers Education or Behind the Wheel lessons for those students 18 years old and younger.

While we respect your decision to not vaccinate, we will not schedule lessons for most unvaccinated students. Those with permanent medical exemptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Thank you for understanding.
