Good morning everyone!
Today is friendly reminder that the Thanksgiving Holiday break is fast approaching. Drive Happy will be on the road during the holiday break teaching, and lessons are still available. However, we strongly suggest that if you would like to go out driving with us over the break that schedule right now!.
We love teaching lessons, and we are looking forward to teaching you, but we do expect this period to be very, very busy. Please plan ahead and schedule today.
Please note that driving lessons will not be available on Thanksgiving Day (Thu 11/28) or the day after (Fri 11/29). Time with family and friends is very difficult to come by, but absolutely necessary. We do hope that you understand, and that you choose to spend time with your family and friends on these dates as well.
We will not be teaching ANY driving lesson after 2pm on Halloween. Small children in costumes and student drivers are not a good combination. We hope that everyone understands why this is important and we apologize for the inconvenience. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
Amber and I are very involved in our industry and advancing driver training and traffic safety. Part of our involvement means attending Driving School Association of California Board Meetings and Continuing Education Seminars 3 times a year. The final Board Meeting and Continuing Education Seminar of 2013 is taking place this weekend Saturday October 12 – Sunday October 13 in San Diego and we will be attending.
What that means for our students, is that unfortunately we will not able to take any driving lessons this weekend. We do understand that many of you like taking weekend lessons, and we like teaching them! We do hope that you understand that we would only miss our weekend lessons for a very good reason, and this is one.
This also means that we will not be available to answer phone calls on Saturday, or Sunday. We will however still be checking our email, and will do our best to get back to you quickly. On-line Driver Education, Study Hall, and the rest of our website will continue to function as normal.
Regular lesson and phone hours will resume on Monday October 14 at 9am.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and have a great weekend!
Heads up! Drive Happy will be attending the opening of the new Bridge at Clinton Keith / Interstate 15 tomorrow morning. Don’t forget to say hi if you see us there.
Now that we’ve got our new training car out on the road, it’s time to decide what color we’re going to wrap it. We’re leaning towards purple. What do you think?
If you, or someone you know are required to re-take a driving test at the DMV, regardless of age it is a very good idea to take a driving lesson first. Do not underestimate the DMV.
A quality driving school can take you through all the skills of the driving test and provide you with an honest private assessment of your abilities. Knowing what’s on the test will make your experience at the DMV much less frightening, and you will be more likely to pass.
Again, you should take a driving lesson BEFORE your driving test. Many people decide to re-test without assistance and find themselves leaving the DMV with a suspended or revoked license.
Meet the newest member of the Drive Happy family.
Raise a toast to “Sunny”, the original Drive Happy car. She’s retiring today after nearly 6 years of faithful service and over 228,000 miles. Hundreds and hundreds of people have driven “Sunny”, many of them getting behind the wheel for their very first time.
She’s been an incredibly reliable part of the Drive Happy family since the day we opened. In fact, she’s never missed a day of work!
Thank you so much Sunny! You will be remembered fondly forever.
Happy Summer everybody!
Amber and I are looking forward to an awesome summer with many driving lessons and drive test and we hope you are too. As we get busier in the summer months scheduling early is very important. We’d love to get you out on the road, but spaces fill fast and if you want one you need to reserve it ASAP!
Have a great summer and we will see you out on the road!
Our enrollment form ended up broken when we made some website upgrades the other day. The text was not appearing at all and I didn’t know about it until a helpful customer let me know this afternoon. It’s fixed now!
If you see anything broken please let me know at email@example.com
I try to keep a pretty good track of everything, but this website has over 280 pages and sometimes things slip by.
