Mercer Island Driving School

You can complete your coursework and prepare for your driving and knowledge tests at our professional adult and teen drivers education program in Mercer Island.

Our driver’s ed classes are taught by experienced and dedicated instructors who understand how to create a supportive environment that is fun, engaging, and effective.

When you enroll for a class at our convenient location in Mercer Island, you can participate in the required courses and even (depending on the package) take your road and knowledge tests.

Drivers Education for Teens and Adults

Whether you’re an adult or a teen, getting your license can be an exciting time. The SWERVE instructors will ensure that you get the education you need to become the best driver you can be.

Our teen driver program is designed to build a strong foundation in safe driving, collision avoidance, and dealing with unexpected situations.

Our adult classes can be tailored to your needs, whether you are trying to acquire your first license or if you just want to build your confidence out on the open road.

Why SWERVE?

SWERVE is a different kind of professional driving school. The curriculum was designed to move away from many of the conventional forms of driver’s education in order to steer our students toward a more relevant methodology that will produce better drivers.

Throughout these classes, whether you’re a teen or adult, every student will learn the fundamentals of safe driving and understand what it takes to develop good driving skills.

Each of our instructors focus on developing safer and more responsible drivers while keeping the learning environment fun and engaging.

We are all dedicated to your success and look forward to see you out on the road.

Working Together to Teach New Drivers

We believe that it takes a combined effort to make sure teen drivers become safe, skilled drivers. That’s why we want to the teachers, students, and parents to work together and keep the lines of communication open.

We always encourage parents to ask us any questions about any concerns they may have. We want to let you know how your teen is progressing in the classes.

When you stay involved, you can help keep your teen safe when they’re behind the wheel.
