Instructors

All of our instructors are licensed by the Kansas Board of Education to teach Driver’s Education. Additionally, we check driving records and do criminal background checks for all of our instructors. The number of drivers education instructors on staff changes from season to season. In the summer, when a great number of people are interested in enrolling, our staff may swell to as many as 10 instructors. The rest of the year, we maintain a staff of 4 to 6 instructors. If, after you enroll, you would like to request a particular teacher, let us know, and we can certainly schedule the student with that instructor. If you have a gender preference, let us know, and we will accomodate that request also.
