Testimonials

  • "Easy and Enjoyable!"

    The Next Street made my drivers education experience not only easy but enjoyable. My instructor Kevin Wilson has a great personality and taught us everything we needed to know while making the classes fun. I would recommend the Next Street to anyone.

  • "Convenient Locations and Class Times"

    Driver's Ed is a very helpful program in preparing for my license. It reviews prior knowledge about the road while also introducing new laws and information I was previously unaware of. My program at Wolcott High School is convenient because of its location and timing directly after school.
