Who We Are:

By choosing National Safety Council Driving Academy, you are investing in excellence. Our Driving Academy enrollment fee is lower than other driving schools because we are a nonprofit organization with a mission to eliminate preventable injuries, death and loss in the communities we serve. Educating your student helps us achieve this mission.

What You Get:

The 8-hours of classroom training and the 6-hours of behind-the-wheel training are instructed by certified law enforcement officers who have experience with, and a passion for, educating young adults.
