Driver’s Education

Want to get your driver license?

We’ve got everything you need to help get you on the road as a safe and defensive driver.

From beginner courses to refresher courses and everything in between, we offer both in-class and in-car instruction to help you be the most informed, safe and defensive driver you can be, and most importantly, licensed!

Our classroom courses are 4-8 hours, depending on the course you choose. We make them short so you can build on your knowledge in smaller blocks, over longer periods of time. And, we have convenient locations throughout the Phoenix Metro area.

Just because you have your permit doesn’t mean you can’t take a class. Our courses are designed to be spread out so you retain the knowledge you are learning. Most students start with our in-class session or our online program to get their permit. Driving instruction can start next, and there are several packages to choose from depending on your skill level and experience. Once getting some experience on the road, we recommend our Alive@25® class. After licensed, consider following up with our Defensive Driving class as a volunteer to help you remember safe and defensive driving habits.

Whichever school you choose, make sure it’s an MVD-licensed school.

What our customers are saying…

My daughter was lucky enough to go through Stop and Go driving instruction, where she was able to get behind the wheel and the classroom instruction had convenient hours. I am confident in the driving skills she acquired through their instruction.
