 Ballard Driving School by SWERVE

SWERVE Driving School Woodinville

We have moved out of the Sunset Community Center and into our very own location starting in December of 2018.  Our new address is:  1104 NW 85th St. Seattle, WA  98117

You can complete your required coursework through a professional driving school at our convenient location in Ballard.

SWERVE has a convenient location in Seattle, Washington where new drivers can work with dedicated instructors and coaches to learn how to drive safely and defensively, even on crowded Seattle streets.

Why SWERVE for Washington Drivers Ed?

SWERVE Driving School’s curriculum content and support materials are always current, relevant, and lively. Our classroom material is designed and organized to support teen drivers who are just getting behind the wheel and starting their journey toward receiving their license (and a little more independence).

Our instructors are the pride of our driving school. Each of these dedicated teachers exceed the state requirements and understand how to deliver the curriculum in an engaging way. Our instructors are committed to teaching Seattle students to be safe and responsible drivers in a fun and supportive environment.

Getting Your License

While you’re attending Ballard High School, you’ve probably got a lot of things on your mind.

Preparing for the Washington State testing should be simple and easy and not interfere with everything else you need to do in a day. In order to get your Washington license, you will need to:

  1. Complete a new teen driver training course
  2. Pass the WA state written and road exams
  3. Hold your permit for at least 6 months
  4. Have 50 hours of practice driving (10 hours are required at night)
  5. Be at least 16 years old

A Combined Effort

We take our responsibility to new teen drivers very seriously, and making the best drivers requires a combined effort from the teachers, students, and parents. We want (and need) parents to be involved throughout this entire process.

Parents of SWERVE Driving School students are encouraged to ask questions, clear up concerns, check on progress, and generally be in touch.

Are you ready to get your license and become a great driver? Are you looking for adult driving lessons in the area? SWERVE Driving School is committed to providing the knowledge and support you need to pass your tests and get your license. We have a number of Seattle area driving school locations, and this one is really close and convenient for Ballard High students.
