Driving Schools – adapting to USA driving


Moving from another country and adapting to driving in Seattle can be challenging.

A quick lesson from a driving school can totally help boost confidence and help avoid getting a ticket from breaking a rule that you didn’t know about. I haven’t personally used any of these but am hoping that it might be useful to you.

My colleagues have referred these schools but I am sure there are others I don’t know about.  These all have locations in or near Seattle and some of them are national companies that have locations outside of Washington State as well. They all require scheduling a time for your lesson and can get all booked up, so you might want to contact a few of them! I hope that this information is useful for you and that it helps everyone feel more confident about their driving!
