At Don-Tre Driving School, we take pride in the success of our students. We do our best to provide quality driver education and keep the entire process as simple and pleasant as we can. We’ve had so many successful and happy students and we are blessed to be teaching the children of many of the parents we taught years ago!

Here’s what some of our customers have to say:

  • My son was completely nervous about learning to drive.  In fact, we practically had to force him.  Peter took Tom out, and the situation completely turned around.  Not only was Peter professional, but he helped Tom gain a level of confidence both behind the wheel and in life.  Thanks Don-Tre!

  • What a cool instructor!  I had John as my instructor. I was a little bit nervous, but he was very calming, and by the end of the 6th hour, I really felt like I understood what I was doing.  I came back to Don-Tre to take my test and I passed!  Yay!

  • I cannot recommend Don-Tre Driving School enough.  It’s funny, but I actually learned to drive with Don-Tre is 1989, and now my son and my daughter both learned to drive with Don-Tre too!  Don Carpenter is the most amazing teacher I have ever known!
