Brake Check!!

Well we finally got a chance to test our instructor brake today! We apologize to the residents of a Wildomar for the screeching and smoke. That was us! It works great.

We’ll post some pictures later this week. Anyone interested in buying a passenger side brake pedal should check out www.osbrake.com. The Teen Safe brake is super cool and even comes with a locking pin just in case your notebook falls on the brake pedal when your not looking. Not that it’s ever happened before…Ok, gotta go!

A driving school? Have you lost your mind?

I thought it might be a good idea to let everyone know exactly what kind of driving school Drive Happy is and why anyone would want to open one, so here we go.

Drive Happy is a professional driving school providing instruction for Class C motor Vehicle licensing in the State of California. My name is Josh Mayes and my wife is Amber Mayes, we are both professional driving instructors. Together, we have 9 years experience in the driving school industry. The bulk of our experience has been providing behind-the-wheel training to new drivers. We have taught over 2,500 students how to drive a car! In case you were wondering, none of our students have ever hit anything more than a curb during their driving lessons.

Amber and I are also qualified driver education classroom instructors with thousands of hours of classroom experience. In addition, I am also a qualified traffic violator school instructor.

We love our job, and we’re both very excited about finally starting our own company!
