Suncoast Defensive Driving School is dedicated to providing the very best quality In-Car Instruction throughout Sarasota, Manatee, and Pinellas counties. We specialize in defensive driving techniques for Sarasota, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Venice, and North Port areas. Driving requires practice. The more practice you receive, the better you get. In simple terms, defensive driving means identifying potential hazards before they become immediate hazards.
AAA Approved Driving School
Suncoast Defensive Driving School has met and surpassed all requirements of the AAA Approved Driving School program. This insures all students will receive the very best in driver training, curriculum, vehicles, customer service and community reputation.
As the area’s exclusive AAA Approved School, we are pleased to offer a 30 hour home correspondence driver education program utilizing the AAA How To Drive manual. Together with our in-car training, this program provides equivalent classroom time to public school programs, with the convenience of home based study and the advantage of private in-car instruction. For home schooling families, this course exceeds the standards from the Florida Department of Education for Driver Education and qualifies for a .5 school credit.
Teen Defensive Driving
Suncoast Defensive Driving School wants the family to know our purpose. We strongly encourage parental involvement with our young students. The Team Concept encompasses private defensive driver instruction coupled with frequent practice at home. Our instructors will meet with parents during the driving course for progress reports and suggestions.
Our one on one professional training courses yield superior results over public programs and are a vital start to driver safety. However, a course is still not enough time behind the wheel for new drivers. The state of Florida's requirement of 50 hours of supervised driving for teen drivers under the age of 18 years is extremely important.
