Why Choose Drive This Way Driving School?

Let’s face it, there are a lot of driving schools you can choose.

Drive This Way Driving School will ensure the safety and security of each student. With our combined 7 years in local law enforcement in Roanoke VA, 23 years in the insurance industry and 50 plus years of public and private education.  We are eager to share our driving knowledge from a hands on point of view. That’s why we provide the best classroom and behind the wheel experience in our driving schools located in Roanoke VA and Lynchburg VA.  We service the surrounding counties of Appomattox, Bedford, Botetourt, Campbell, Franklin and other surrounding Virginia areas. Our vision is to be the student’s best choice for a driving school.

We pride ourselves on taking our driving knowledge and effectively teaching it to people who need that knowledge. We will guide each student in realizing the goal of securing a driver’s license and/or completing a certified driving improvement program. Our job is much more than simply reciting information from a book, we have to work with people to overcome their fears and help them become safe and confident drivers.

That is why you should choose our driving school!
