Fleet & Crew
Here at Professional Drivers Academy, we have qualified road instructors who have their CDL Class A license. Most of our family has 20+ years of teaching experience. We are here to make sure you get the best training to be safe to yourself and everyone else on the road. We are a family run organization who have been around since 1975.

Janet has joined Shawn in creating the best quality driving school we can offer. She comes to us with years of teaching and administrative experience that are helping bring our organization into the next century.
