Coaches Driving Academy was established in 2002 and is owned by Coach David Smith, who is a South Carolina Certified Driving Instructor.  Coaches Driving Academy is a comprehensive driver’s education program which centers on the IPDE method of training and also teaches “accident avoidance” methods to give the novice driver tips on how to avoid an accident before they happen.

Professionalism is paramount within our company and lends itself to the outstanding quality of education and service that we provide every client.  The moment you contact us you’ll notice how informed our staff is and how delighted we are to serve you.  Each staff member and driving instructor is carefully screened and selected to mesh with our family of professionals.  Knowledge and patience are essential to a successful mission of a complete driver education and traffic safety program.  The educational process we provide in the classroom setting, and the one-on-one driving instruction, is totally interactive and complete in every detail with the knowledge and skills you as a client require.
