Bellevue 911 Driving School & DOL Approved License Testing Center
You can receive your driver’s education from experienced police officers who are specially qualified to train adult and teen drivers for a lifetime of safe driving.
911 Driving School of Bellevue is owned and operated by two retired Bothell police officers who have more than 35 years of experience in law enforcement. We teach today’s teens and adults how to become tomorrow’s safest drivers, making the roadways a safer place for everyone.
What Makes Us Different?
Our instructors are the cornerstone of our driving program. Here, we only hire the very best police officers to provide instruction for our students and observe their progress. These officers have seen it all, and they bring their unique experiences to our professional driving school to help every student really understand the importance of defensive driving. .
At 911 Driving School, we have proven time and again how an instructor with a law enforcement background can provide the knowledge and build the trust that is necessary for an effective and successful learning environment.
These instructors – and all their stories and experiences – really make the 911 program different.
