Our New Normal...COVID Safety Protocols

Students will be required to wear a face covering. Exceptions are for those who are fully vaccinated (meaning 2 weeks after their final shot). If students who are vaccinated still prefer to wear a mask while in the car, that is also okay. Additionally, all surfaces of the driver and passenger area will be cleaned before and after each lesson.


All concerns about wearing a mask must be discussed prior to the lesson.




  • Students are required to have their Pennsylvania Drivers permit available.

  • Exceptions will be made for those students whose permit has expired due to COVID-19 and the DMV being closed during that time of quarantine.


As always, my objective is to provide a safe environment and deliver an exemplary level of education and instruction for every student every day.


I am looking forward to working with all of you!
