The Premier Driving School Staff has over 100 years of private and public school driver's education experience. 


PDS instructors have spent the majority of their career in education, business management, community service, and social work.  Three of our instructors have officiated for the Kansas State High School Activities Association and coached locally for the past 30 years.  With this combined experience, they noticed the ever growing demand of students' and parents' time outside of school for camps, training sessions, out of season leagues, extracurricular activities, work, and much much.


Because of the demands on family time, they decided to make a convenient, affordable, and more importantly a highly effective way to provide drivers education for students who want to obtain their Kansas Permit and/or License.  We have currently have 3 locations in Central Kansas: Newton, Hutchinson and Derby.


With year around classes, front door pick up, one on one driving, and one day classes, a student can obtain the proper certificates for his/her permit and/or license without interfering with their family, work or school schedules.  Please explore the website for more information and how to sign up.  

  • "I was able to schedule my daughter's lessons around all of her school and family activities.  On one particular driving lesson, they picked her up from school and dropped her off at softball practice when they finished.  The whole process was simple and convenient.  My daughter learned a lot and is becoming a very good driver.  Premier Driving School was super convenient.  It was very cost effective when you compare the convenience to the amount of time we saved"….........Julie S

  • "Do to work schedules, my husband and I could not take my son back and forth to public school drivers education classes.  So, we took him on a Saturday to an all day class and then shortly following the class, he was driving on the weekends.  He had his permit on the day of class, he even drove us home!  We loved it"...............Jan H
