Our history:

Opening its doors in 1974, Midwest Driving School is one of the oldest commercial driving schools in the state of Kansas. For the past 40 years, we have taught thousands of students the knowledge and skills to protect themselves from accidents and to promote a quality Driver Education Program. Our mission is to work together to ensure the highest quality of instruction to Kansas drivers and to fully prepare our students to live safe and accident free lives when they exit our school. Midwest Driving School’s motto is “Drive to Arrive Alive.”
