The Mission of our driving schools is to prepare students to become successful beginning drivers and life long defensive drivers.
- To provide an academic and a practical driving program to enhance the development of each student so that he or she may become a safe and successful defensive driver.
- To provide a learning environment that will enable each student to reach his or her full potential and to develop a positive attitude and self-confidence in their driving abilities.
Because of the nature and risk associated with driving a motor vehicle and consistent with the requirements of the Kansas Driver License Bureau, Kennedy Driving Schools require that each student must demonstrate adequate proficiency in speaking and understanding English before any academic classroom or behind-the-wheel driving instruction can be provided. If English proficiency is a concern, please call our office to discuss the situation before submitting a registration or any payments (refer to our refund policy below).
