At Finger Lakes Driving School, our goal is to teach students to be better, safer drivers, through education and training.

The #1 cause of teen deaths (both nationally and locally) is automobile accidents. They can change lives—and families—forever. Finger Lakes Driving School is dedicated to helping lower this tragic statistic.

We don’t just stop at instructing first-time student drivers. We also offer programs for adult drivers.

Our car is safe, comfortable and clean. It’s size enables easy maneuverability. While most driving schools’ cars only have an extra brake (for the instructor), ours is also equipped with an extra gas pedal! Learn to drive in the air-conditioned comfort of the safest possible vehicle.

Students at the Finger Lakes Driving School will also receive personal one-on-one instruction directly with the school owner.  You can count on direct results in a caring and helpful environment.

With safety as his first priority, Dave has been teaching first-time students to drive for the past fourteen years. All of the testimonial quotes that appear on this web site are from actual former students (taught in the Seneca Falls School District).

You can rest assured that Dave will teach your son or daughter to become the safest driver possible when they get behind the wheel.
