Upcoming Classes

In order to sign up for an upcoming class, please text a picture of the perspectives students permit to 864-554-1071. Please indicate which class you would like to sign up for in your text.  I will respond back with a confirmation text once I receive it.    

 

 

I offer face to face classes as well as virtual classes done the same day. The virtual classes are live streamed using zoom and class codes are sent the Friday before class.  The face to face class is more interactive where we discuss car maintenance and how to change a tire.  We have several activities where students can do everyday things using intoxication goggles and they will have the opportunity to drive a golf cart through an obstacle course while wearing the goggles.  These classes are limited and will meet in Easley at 2515 Old Pendleton Road, Easley.  Lunch and snacks will be provided.  Cost is $350  

Please note: 

This does not meet the requirement for Alive at 25.  Alive at 25 is a separate course that allows students to park at schools across the state. Drivers Education allows students to get their restricted license/full license and gives them a discount on their insurance.

ABOUT

the Instructors

 

 

Instructor/Owner John Schumpert

I have been teaching driver's education for 22 years and have 24 years experience teaching and coaching in SC Public Schools.  After spending two years as the Athletic Director at Liberty High School, I decided to start teaching driver's education full time at the conclusion of the 2016 school year. I had always wanted to start my own driver's education company and I seized the opportunity following the 2016 school year.  The Ultimate Driving School officially opened its doors in November of 2016.  

Currently, I am teaching at Westside High School in Anderson and will continue to teach driver's education after school and on the weekends.  

I am committed to making SC Roads safer for you and your loved ones!
