Why Us

Learning to drive a vehicle is an important responsibility. We believe every parent wants their child to be safe and responsible behind-the-wheel.

 wayOUR DRIVER’S EDUCATION PHILOSOPHY

At Safer Driver Solutions, we understand and want to provide the best coaching needed to develop all of our students into responsible, safe and skilled drivers.

No two students learn the same way. We pride ourselves on our individualized driver’s education programs designed so students can learn in a safe, patient environment.

We have the tools and the expertise to educate new drivers on all pertinent laws and techniques required for safe driving.

We provide our students with the knowledge and confidence that they will need to pass our Certified Driver Education class or the DOT Drive Test if they are an adult seeking licensure.

We are a proud member of the Iowa Association of Safety and Education (IASE), the American Drivers Traffic and Safety Education Association (ADTSEA), the Association of Driver Rehabilitation Specialists (ADED) and Driving Schools Association of America (DSAA)

Every student has the ability to learn how to drive. How the instruction is presented is critical to how well the information is retained. Time and patience are essential for success.

“My focus to provide the instruction in the classroom and behind-the-wheel that illustrates the advantages and importance of safe and responsible driving skills. I tell all my students that taking the information and advice from various points of view of driving, our instructors, parents, and relatives, combined with what they learn in the classroom will allow them to create their own distinct driving style. It is their choice on how they choose to use that information. But driving is a skill that can be used for your entire life. Driving is a privilege. Use it wisely and it can bring you success and satisfaction for a lifetime.”
