When you’re considering which driving school to choose for your child, here’s some critical things to consider…

Experience, Chase Driving School is the oldest driving school in Fairfield, CT. In fact, we’ve taught more people to drive than ANY other school in the area. Debbie Abate, the owner of Chase Driving School, is a Master Driving Instructor (only a small percentage of instructors have attained the level of Master Instructor) who’s dedicated to working with EVERY student. This level of hands-on care and concern cannot be matched by the multi-location franchise approach to driver’s ed. Our singular focus allows Chase to raise the bar, rather than just focusing on just passing the driver’s test, our students are taught and master the various defensive driving skills, and knowledge they need to become a good, safe drivers. For Debbie, driver’s ed is becoming a generational endeavor because she’s now teaching the children of former students!

We would NEVER ask a student to go to another town to finish their classroom instruction; we think this approach puts additional stress on the students and their parents. Keep in mind, some schools with locations in multiple towns must cancel classes when their staffing requires it. We NEVER cancel classes unless it’s for inclement weather although we do close between Christmas and New Years. We’re located in Fairfield, so whether you have DMV issues, or need another certificate, unlike others we’re able to help you immediately! Some driving schools make students wait up to 2 weeks to get their certificates; we think that’s ridiculous! When you finish your classes with us, we give you your CS-1 certificate immediately! We’re extremely bothered by the fast-food style of instruction that’s spreading in our industry, companies trying to run many locations throughout the state. This cookie cutter approach to driver education may help the company’s bottom line, but the students suffer. Our instruction is tailored and adjusted to fit each student's needs, and we believe this is critical. Each student brings a unique set of driving skills, and our approach to driver education allows us to make sure each hour of instruction is as productive as possible.

When you compare your options, I strongly suggest you ask yourself one question, “which driving school puts the student’s needs first?” Answer that question, and you’ll know where to send your child for their driver education.
