First Steps Driving School has over 20+ years of experience teaching all experience levels of beginning drivers; from the first day of a driving permit to licensed drivers with several years of driving experience. We are committed to helping each student driver reach his or her full potential as a safe, perceptive, defensive driver.

First Steps Driving Tip

TAKE YOUR TIME AND SLOW DOWN – by slowing down and controlling your speed you give yourself more time to react to unexpected roadway conditions and the actions of other vehicles or pedestrians on the roadway.
