Don't worry, we'll assist you in obtaining the state-required driving instructor certification through our paid training program - we are pretty good at this since we have over 150 instructors in 7 states!
All of our lessons are taught in a Coastline Car and recorded with a dashboard camera for the safety of you and your student.
