northwest driving school welcomes you!

northwest driving school™ is a state licensed program with a progressive curriculum approved by the State of Washington Department of Licensing. All of our instructors have completed our rigorous certification process and are also fully licensed by the Washington State Department of Licensing.

Our teachers are experienced in adapting to the learning styles of students and use a variety of techniques such as cooperative learning, direct instruction, visual aides, discussions and hands-on experiences. They also have the unique ability to make the learning meaningful to the lives of their students.

We’re not strangers to working with young people and adults in the educational and teaching fields. The initiative for our driving school came because we feel mastery of skills in safe driving would save thousands of teen and adult lives each year. That’s why we are dedicated to teaching our students to DRIVE TO SURVIVE™.

We are a locally owned and operated private driving school in Kitsap County since 1991, with driving school locations in Port Townsend, Poulsbo, Silverdale, Port Angeles, Sequim, and Forks.


My daughter tells everyone she meets who is thinking about drivers ed that they should attend Northwest Driving School.

I asked a lot of questions and got all the answers I was looking for… I did very well on all my drives because of what I learned in the classroom… My drive instructors did not put me down in any way… They gave me more than one chance!

Your organization did a great job and I will be back with my youngest daughter next year so you can train her too…. You have the best reputation in the Silverdale area.
