Our training vehicles are Toyota Camrys, America’s Best-Selling car 18 of the last 19 years. We chose these vehicles because of their outstanding track record for safety and reliability.
Camrys are a "Top Safety Pick +" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety - the governmental body responsible for all vehicle safety testing and rating in the United States.
We want our students to have an enjoyable, easy to drive vehicle when learning how to drive for the first time.
They are dual controlled, meaning the instructor has their own set of brakes, as well as a list of top safety features to give our students and parents confidence and a peace of mind.
