 "We Teach to Drive to Arrive Alive" 

The catch phrase above says it all. Our main goal at Main Street Driving School is to give top quality instruction at an affordable price. We teach the students to be safe, responsible drivers. That is, we teach them not only to pass a road test but also to drive defensively - there is a huge difference between the two.

We have mature instructors who are highly trained and licensed by the State of New Jersey. The owner of the school, Michael Tivey, was previously a classroom teacher in defensive driving and also has the necessary qualifications to teach driver education in high school. We strive constantly to improve our methods of instruction.

The six hours of behind-the-wheel instruction for the 16 year old is meant to give the student a good grounding in actual driving experience - there is a curriculum set down by the MVC that every instructor has to follow and we make sure our instructors do just that. If we can do something to help avoid an accident or save a life, then it has all been worth the effort.

Remember: Driving is the most dangerous activity we do on a regular basis. When choosing a driving school do NOT choose based purely on cost but on reputation, customer service, and quality of instruction. After all, you are placing your child's safety in the hands of the instructor.

Just as we do with 16-year olds, we teach our adults the same - to be safe, courteous, defensive drivers. While doing this, we give pointers that are needed to pass the road test. However, if we give instruction only on how to pass the road test then that is all they can do, but if we teach them to drive then we give them the grounding that they can take with them throughout their driving years.

So, remember:

"We Teach to Drive to Arrive Alive"
