Our Story

Frank’s Driving School has been serving the community of central CT since 1968.

Ask anyone you know, and we bet he/she or someone they know learned from us! We are the leader in driver’s education in central CT, with one important goal always in mind; we strive to provide the safest, most comprehensive driver’s
education for teenanadults.


Many things have changed since we first opened. New roads have been built, new driving laws have been passed, and we have expanded the areas we serve. However, our commitment to excellence and our dedication to the families we
serve will never change. We are a genuine family-run business and we recognize how stressful it can be to think of your loved one behind the wheel of a car for the first time. With our school’s experienced instructors, those first moments behind the wheel don’t have to be filled with anxiety. We know firsthand how crucial it is for teens and adults to become lifelong skilled and confident drivers. Our instructors are kind and always willing to meet our students where they are, literally and figuratively! We offer flexible schedules, competitive prices, and a fun, relaxed experience. Look no further then one of CT’s first family-run driving schools. Let Frank’s Driving School lead your family members down the road to driving success!
