We simply can’t say enough good things about Midwest Driving School, and especially instructor Ted Zuzzio. Ted made the entire 6 hours of driving instruction an amazing and memorable experience for our son, John. He gained a great degree of confidence while driving with Ted, and had a blast, too! It was a joy to meet you Coach Ted, and we thank you! God bless!
Excellent driving school. Johnny’s classroom instruction provides crucial information, knowledge, and familiarity with the laws that are essential to operation a motor vehicle. Wes, the in-the-car instructor, was patient, careful, and attentive. All documentation needed is provided upon completion. An excellent choice with a great group of folks.
Our daughter actually said, “Never thought I’d say this, but I’m actually having fun in driver’s ed’. Thank you for making this a positive experience for her!
Mr. Beane did a fantastic job with our daughter. He has a calm and comforting demeanor which is exactly what she needed. We cannot thank him enough!
Two of our teens have done the course and driving with an instructor. Easy, awesome experience both times. Will use again for child #3 and always recommend!!

Johnny was such a nice instructor! He was a little tough at first but he’s so nice. He made the class go by very quick and makes having to drive in the car for 6 hours a fun time. 10/10 definitely recommend going here!!
Everyone in Midwest Driving School was very kind and very patient, they made learning to drive and navigating the road easy and a little fun! JB was incredible, and they all want to see you succeed. Highly recommend if you want to learn at a steady pace.
My sixteen-year-old grandson was already a pretty experienced driver when we enrolled him, but he still came home after his final driving session exclaiming about how much more he had learned at Midwest. His instructor was Johnny, and my grandson had nothing but praise. Well worth the money!

Johnny Beane made the driving experience very fun. He also made the class less boring and had it go by very fast. He was very funny and I enjoyed talking to him. I also liked how short the experience went including the driving and class.
Wonderful instructors and a wonderful experience for my teens. Two kids went here and they came out great drivers! The staff is fantastic! Would recommend to anyone! A+++
My teacher was Johnny and he was also my driving instructor. When I first had to drive, I was soooo nervous and I didn’t want to go at all. After driving with Johnny, I fell in love with driving because he made it fun. I recommend going to Midwest Driving School. And you won’t regret it.
Wow. It’s a very nice driving school in Lawrence. I just finished my driving class. I loved it and I enjoyed it so much. They are all good. May you continue serving people. May God bless your school.

I had Mr. Johnny Beane for both driving instructor and teacher for the class. He is an awesome teacher. He makes driving time very fun but also very serious. Johnny has a great personality. He is really good at what he does!
We highly recommend Midwest Diving School!!!! One kiddo behind the wheel… 3 more to go. Thank you to all the patient and great instructors!!!!
My son really enjoyed the class, which is more than I expected. He speaks very highly of Johnny Beane.
The class work went really well, but the 6 hours of driving made a lot of difference in our daughter’s ability and confidence. Mike, her driving instructor, was very flexible scheduling those hours. It was a great experience all the way around.
I really enjoyed it, easy and straight to the point. Their guys get it done right while having a good time. The instructor was fun to talk to in the classroom and even more fun to drive with. 6 hours seemed like a lot but it went by fast. Thanks Midwest!!!
I learned a lot in the time when I came and it was fun.
Fantastic teachers that made 8 hours on a Saturday very enjoyable. Very helpful with driver’s ed.
