Academy of Driving is owned by two retired Virginia law enforcement officers who want to help teens become safe and responsible drivers. We care about our students and as such, we present them with scenarios and experiences that help them think far ahead to reduce their risk of being in an accident. It’s our job to not only teach our students the rules of the road but to match their skill level with their confidence level.

Academy of Driving has researched based teaching methods and instruction which has proven successful having taught thousands of students. You are safe with an Academy of Driving instructor who has exceeded the state requirements for a driving instructor license.
