All of our instructors must have the mandatory certifications required to become a driving instructor, and also a background of working with kids in some capacity. Some of our instructors also have a law enforcement background. ‘We want parents to feel safe with who’s driving their children.” Ask for their DSI. Every licensed driving instructor is issued a “DSI” number. Ask to see your instructor’s DSI to confirm they are licensed by the state.
