Having my teenage daughter use Stop & Go was a great decision. Took the stress and pressure off me as a parent. They were patient and very supportive/encouraging with my daughter. Everyone there was nice/pleasant and helpful. The in car instructors were awesome. We were lucky to get Melissa and Chris, who were great! Definitely would recommend this company (especially Melissa and Chris as instructors) to others.

Melissa S. was a very great instructor. Not only was she great at her job when instructing me with driving, but she also is a genuinely nice, kind person. I definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for not only a person who is absolutely outstanding at their job and knows what they're doing, but for someone who is also looking for a patient, understanding person. I enjoyed the time I was able to spend with her and do not regret it to this day at all. Thank you so much, Melissa S. for blessing me in not only helping me get my license, but for being such a beautiful impact in my life. - Hope Wee

We absolutely think Mark did an amazing job with our son! He helped teach our son and more importantly gave him confidence. I highly recommend this company. And give 10 stars to Mark personally. I'm so grateful for his help. He is a remarkable teacher. He is patient, encouraging, upbeat, positive, kind, gentle but firm and was exactly what I was looking for. If choosing a school, these guys are amazing!

I had the opportunity to speak with the owner and I got to drive with THE BEST driving instructor, Ray Miller. He was insanely patient and nice person and he really knew how to explain everything very well. I never thought I could get my license and he made it possible. GREAT GUY AND GREAT OVER ALL EXPERIENCE! 🙂

Using Stop and Go to help teach our daughter how to drive was one of the best decisions we made. Her instructor was Ray and after using him for her first lesson he was the only instructor she wanted. Using an outside party to help instill proper driving is key for teenagers. I know this Mom feels better letting her child go out on the road on her own after completing her classes with Stop and Go.

Most trainers are former school teachers or law enforcement officers, and have a high level of experience behind the wheel, in education and with teens. Best of all, each one is friendly and patient.

Experts in Instruction

The only driving school in Arizona owned and operated by teachers with a degree in Traffic Safety Education, Stop and Go Driving School offers knowledge and experience that other schools may not. Our founders also have a background in teaching Special Education and have created a curriculum based on real-life, hands-on driving experiences that suits many different learning styles, including students with ADHD and Autism. Stop and Go is the only driving school that offers an online curriculum approved by the Arizona MVD for Driver’s Education. It’s this in-depth knowledge that has helped us thrive in Arizona for more than 20 years.

Is English Your 2nd Language?

Over the past 20 years, Stop and Go Driving School has successfully trained thousands of students who were not fluent in English. The only requirement, which comes from the MVD, is that everyone taking driving lessons from us understand the following verbal commands in English:

  • STOP

  • SLOW
