Trabuco Canyon Driving School

Varsity Driving Academy is proud to service the city of Trabuco Canyon. Varsity Driving Academy was born out of a desire to provide a driving school that would not only model and teach safe defensive driving techniques to its students, but that would also be a place where parents feel comfortable sending their kids to learn, and where teens feel comfortable with their instructors.

Welcome to Varsity Driving Academy Trabuco Canyon!

In Trabuco Canyon we offer free pick-up and drop-off for behind the wheel training sessions. Never worry about getting to our training session. Just let us know where to pick you up, and we’ll be there.

Classroom Learning

For our students who prefer it, we offer two summer sessions of classroom instruction. Same great information as our online course, but live and in-person with our professional instructors!

Behind-The-Wheel Training

You’ve passed the DMV written test and secured your learner’s permit – on to the next step in the process: behind-the-wheel training! First things first: You must complete your initial 2 hour driving lesson with a certified instructor, who will then validate your learner’s permit. This allows you to begin your 50 hours of practice driving time with a licensed adult over 25 (ten of those 50 hours must be at night).

DMV Package

After you’ve completed your behind-the-wheel training and practice time, you are ready for your final DMV driving test. You may be feeling nervous and anxious during this time, so take advantage of our DMV Package. We’ll make your DMV appointment for you, pick you up and take you to your test, AND you’ll use our car for your final road test! A final note… We want parents and students to know that we go above and beyond to ensure each student feels safe and comfortable. To that end, we provide highly screened, certified instructors who are professional, patient, and encouraging, providing an optimal environment for learning how to drive. We continually assess each student’s progress to determine the best course of action for his or her driving lessons, as our primary goal is to create safety-conscious, skilled, conscientious drivers in Orange County. Contact us today with any questions you may have, or to get started on your driver’s education! (949) 387-4400
