About Our Driving School

At Upstate Driving Academy we believe that it is important to invest in the next generation and to impact the lives of students. After much thought and prayer our driving academy was born. We have a strong desire to see our kids become responsible adults and becoming a well-rounded, safe driver is a huge step in that direction. We realize that you have a choice for what driving school that you choose, but we would greatly appreciate the opportunity to teach and train your child.
