Our InstructorsVDA Instructors are fully licensed by the State of California with extensive Behind The Wheel experience. We pride ourselves on providing a patient and supportive style when working with both teens and adults. Each instructor is mandated to have and pass a livescan (national fingerprint database) before they are hired by us and approved by the DMV. Finally, we have an expectation that each of our instructors always act in a professional and courteous manner when giving instruction. Please visit our Instructors Bio section for additional information.

As an additional enhancement each of our training vehicles is equipped with dual brake controls to provide a less stressful and safer Behind The Wheel experience for new drivers.

All of our vehicles are new.  We train in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017 four door Hyundai Elantra & Accents.  Click here to check out the vehicles and the safety of these vehicles.

Really good program. Easy program to manage. My son squeezed in a full on-line class, permit test at the DMV, and 2 hours of driving behind-the-wheel before he returns to boarding school next week. Will reconnect with Varsity Driving Academy when he is home over Thanksgiving and Winter break to take some more driving lessons. Excellent customer service, great instructors, and an organized program. Thanks for making everything so easy on the parent. The whole experience was really managed by my teen son once I paid the fee. Super convenient and I recommend them to anyone looking to get a teen on the road safely.
