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.


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!
