Drivers education is a big step in every teen’s life that carries a lot of responsibility. Helping students get off on the right foot with the best education possible is our main goal.  Burgess Driving School is the best choice for putting your student on the right track to safety and success.

What makes Burgess Driving School different?  It’s our instructors.  At BDS we hire only the very best to instruct our drivers education classes. The Instructor’s knowledge and first-hand experiences are the keys to retaining meaningful information for students in a way no other curriculum can. Our students leave the program knowing what a great responsibility it is to have earned their Illinois driver’s license.

Burgess Driving School offers the very best drivers education program. Choosing the right school is an important decision and we know you’ll find our classes to be the best value with the highest quality training. The Basic Drivers Education Certification Course will teach students important skills and topics such as:

  • The Foundations of Safe Driving

  • Signals, Signs and Markings

  • Safe Driving Techniques

  • Rules of the Road

  • Knowing How Your Car Works

  • Starting and Stopping

  • Parking, Braking and Turns

  • Roadway Conditions and Car Handling

  • Sharing the Road

  • How to Handle Emergencies

  • State Drivers Test Preparation

Along with classroom theory and instruction, the student will participate in hands-on driving time with Burgess Driving School instructors. Students practice their defensive driving skills on local roads and highways.  Additionally, students will practice parking and other techniques essential to successful driving.
