A poor choice can easily result in a statistic.


Academy of Driving offers a caring attitude, a strong sense of safety and an enjoyable atmosphere for teens to learn to drive responsibly and in a variety of environments.


Academy of Driving is owned by Ken Frederick. His background as a veteran Virginia law enforcement officer instilled a passion to help teens become safe, responsible drivers. Academy of Driving draws from years of experiences, research and training. These factors make our instructors set the bar higher than the required minimum standards.

What is your main reason for choosing a driver education school?  What do you expect from that school when you enroll your son or daughter? Will it simply be to obtain a driver’s license or suit an event schedule? Or, will it be to find an advantageous and meaningful experience that helps your teen drive safely? The choice is yours. Make it a good one!


“We want your teen to be a safe and responsible driver - not a statistic.”  - Ken Frederick, Owner

Mr. Frederick went above and beyond for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better teacher, and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say we wouldn’t have gotten this far without him. I definitely believe it’s way better than anything the high schools could crank out and worth every cent. - Melanie Pratt
