Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. I'm taking the most valuable possession you have and going to provide them with the very best driving instruction and training to become a safe and responsible driver. Long standing and proud member adhering to the professional standards of DSAA (Driving School Association of the Americas) since 2002.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Effective driver education is a partnership between the driving instructor and parents. After they complete our course, they will come back to you to finish the state required hours of drive time prior to being eligible to take the RoadTest. As a parent, your driving habits and attitude will come under scrutiny. We can't be expected to do it all over the 6 hours of behind the wheel time. It then becomes a partnership for you to model the type of driving behaviors that will reinforce what our teen driver education and training course provided. So you Mom an Dad have a critical part to play as well in getting the job done!!
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Certification is the best way to obtain qualified professionals. All Tennessee Certified Driving Instructors are annually certified through the Tennessee Department of Safety.
Word of mouth is the best recommendation and personal testimonials is also a good source. Certifying memberships might seem to be a good way, but the cost of membership keeps many excellent enterprises from joining.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I was born to be a Driving Instructor, just didn't know it at the time I started!!! I love to drive and got my license in California at age 16. I've driven all over the country to include Alaska and Arizona. Have the heart of a teacher and willing to provide my experience and knowledge to provide top quality driving instruction to make student drivers safe and responsible drivers!
