Welcome to Safety 1st Driving School –
Your Best Choice for Driver’s Education
Our experienced instructors are prepared to take each student by the hand, from their very first time behind the wheel till the time they get their license, and beyond. We genuinely care about our students’ safety and want everyone to have a pleasant and enjoyable experience learning to drive.
- You can start your driving lesson with us even if you have lost or misplaced your learner’s permit, because we issue student licenses!
- All our cars are brand new and have very high Safety Ratings to ensure a safe and reliable training environment for our students. Learn more about our cars and their safety features.
- We have a very high success rate for students passing their driving and written tests on their first try.
- Safety 1st Driving School is fully bonded, insured & licensed to provide the maximum amount of security and safety to every student.
- All our instructors are background checked by the DOJ and licensed by the California DMV, as well as Safety 1st’s own rigorous training requirements. We have very high expectations for our driving instructors!
Our programs are FUN (NOT boring!) and they work around YOUR schedule. Our instructors will pick you up and drop you off for Behind-the-Wheel instruction, and when you take the Online Course is completely up to you! Our prices are affordable and our instructors are friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced!
Top 4 Reasons Students (and Parents) Love Safety 1st:
1. We REALLY ARE there for our students.
Our students know they can call us anytime, day or night, and we will happily answer their call. We genuinely care about giving our students THE BEST driver’s education available – even if it’s late at night. What you find with many other driving schools is that students sign up for Online Training and they are completely on their own. Not with Safety 1st! We are with you from your very first call to us, till you take your final DMV exam.
2. We communicate with parents.
We at Safety 1st have a specific Grading System. Every behind-the-wheel driving lesson is graded, and after every lesson we discuss the grade with the parents and student. That way you will ALWAYS know your student’s strengths, as well as what to practice on your own time, and what we will focus on improving together. We will also gladly provide copies of each lesson’s grade report at your request.
3. We are ON TIME and PROFESSIONAL.
Safety 1st’s driving instructors are always on time. We show up to every behind-the-wheel lesson looking clean, presentable and professional. We take our jobs very seriously, and we want all our students and parents to know it.
4. We don’t skimp on Behind-the-Wheel training!
Our number one priority is our students – not just that they pass their DMV test the first time around so our numbers look good. We are about taking the time to ensure they become safe, skilled drivers. That is why we drive over twice as much as our competition. Most driving schools log about 15 miles per session. Safety 1st logs 30-40 miles per session! Our concern is not on saving gas money and mileage – it is on our students! We spare no expense to make sure our students become safe, skilled drivers.
Spread the Word!
