Our Graduates Say

Our drivers education and behind the wheel training program is the absolute best!  But don’t just take our word for it, ask any of our former students.

Captain Perlstein taught me drivers education, but I was very anxious about the DMV test. He met with me and my mom before my test and gave me the confidence needed to pass.

Officer Richards took the time to make sure I knew how to drive, but also taught me about freeway safety. I got a flat tire on the freeway a couple months later and knew exactly what to do!

Emma M.

Santa Catalina High School

I was so nervous to drive and didn’t know what to expect. Coach Chris was so relaxed and calm that my nerves went away within like 10 minutes.
