THE 405 DRIVING SCHOOL TEAM

What sets us apart from other driving schools? Why do our students and customers say things like…

  • “…the staff is just absolutely amazing and very fun…”
  • “+5 extra stars, They are super chill and really good at teaching especially during the drives.”
  • “1000000/10 recommend this place for Hazen High School students and others.”
  • “They are incredibly caring and all the session instructors make it fun to learn about the road and how to stay safe.”

It’s because we make it a point to only hire people that have a passion for teaching and impacting youth! For our staff, this isn’t just a job with a flexible schedule. It’s a platform that allows them to pour time and energy into people during a critical milestone in their life! It’s a chance for them to make the experience of getting the keys to your freedom an enjoyable and memorable one!
