What Our Students Say

Your skill and understanding and patience were responsible for improving my driving and obtaining my license renewal. For anyone needing driving lessons, I would highly recommend your defensive driving school.

My son and I were very pleased with the instruction and training he received. I appreciated the additional materials sent home, and we currently are working on his supervised practice.

Meet Steve

Steve grew up in Burbank, CA. He attended Cal-State Los Angeles on an athletic scholarship and upon graduation moved to Santa Barbara. Finding it difficult to find a teaching position, he sold women's shoes in La Cumbre Plaza where he learned all about being patient. Later, Steve was able to find a part-time job with a local driving school owned by a California Highway Patrolman. This driving school went out of business when the patrolman was transferred to another city. This is when Steve started his driving school in 1976.
