Founders and owners, Bob and Helen Jones, developed our driving education center to give students of all ages the skills they need to stay accident-free.  We operate under our founders’ philosophy which holds that we have priorities to God, our families, our country, and our careers as educators.  We believe true happiness is found only in what we do for others, which is why we exhibit an unwavering commitment to teaching drivers everything they need to know to drive confidently and safely.

Our Oregon driver education center has been a locally trusted source for the betterment of amateur and veteran drivers alike for over 26 years.  Our Driver’s Education program is one of only two in Southern Oregon that is approved by the state’s Department of Transportation (ODOT) and certified by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Fully licensed and sure to meet all insurance requirements, the quality of our programs can’t be left to question.

However, even if you’ve already acquired your license and received the green light, you can always improve your technique.  That’s why we invite drivers of all skill levels to enroll in our defensive driving course.  Just click on our Private Lessons page for more information.

We find that being able to immerse one’s self in the driving experience offers the best results.  As a result, every vehicle in our fleet comes equipped with cameras for additional assistance and your Peace of Mind.  You can rest assured that when you enroll in one of our programs, you’ll have all of the guidance and tools you need to stay safe while behind-the-wheel.  Call our center to speak with one of our dedicated instructors to determine which of our programs would best serve your needs.
