A tree never hits an automobile except in self defense.

We are the only driving school in West Tennessee that provides private, one-on-one driving instruction in our dual control fully equipped driver training vehicles. This provides steering, gas and brake for both the instructor and client. This gives us full control of the vehicle providing unparalleled safety which minimizes distractions and allows hands-on training with an emphasis on driver safety.

  • I wanted to thank you all for the hard work and effort you have put into teaching and driving with me. You have taught me more than you know and inspired me. I only wish that more students will take your class because it is amazing. I'm so glad I took it! Again, thank you so much.

    I was on I-40 going north-west yesterday when an 18-wheeler tried to get into my lane with out seeing me and clipped my driver-side bumper. It sent me spinning across the lanes and back before almost going over the right-shoulder railing before I got the car under control and was able to pull over. I have to thank Max Maxwell for this. I took the driving class in 2011 and can remember Mr. Maxwell telling us how to react when hydroplaning or skidding; keep calm, don't lock up, don't panic, wait to gain traction and then react. The truck driver that clipped me was able to block traffic so that no one hit me while I was skidding across the lanes, but he told me that he thought I was going to go over the railing. The only reason I didn't was because I remembered what I learned and it saved my life. Thank you so much.

  • Thank you Maxwell Driving School! My daughter, Femia, learned everything that she needs to learn to become a responsible teen driver. She passed her written test for her driving permit because of your program. She is scheduled to take her driving lessons at your school next week and I'm very confident that she'll do just fine because I trust your program! Thank you Max and Lisa (and staff) for your generosity and willingness to help. I highly recommend your school to all teens who want to learn and be trained as responsible drivers!
