Serving Southern Vermont since 2005

Thank you for inquiring about Westminster Driving School. Not all driver education programs are created equal. Accidents are often costly and deadly.╩ You wouldn't want to choose a cut-rate driving school to save a few dollars in the short run. Invest wisely in your child's safe driving career by enrolling in a quality school. We are not a "certificate mill". We care that your child becomes a safe driver.

  • Parents are surprised at how far driver education methods have improved since they took driver ed.
