Drive Rite Academy: An Innovative Approach

Drive Rite Academy is a family-owned driving school founded in 2014, with our first office in central Brooklyn. Since we started, our goal has been to lead the driving school industry in New York. In 2018, we opened our first branch office in Downtown Brooklyn, and in 2021, we crossed the Verrazano Bridge and opened our Staten Island branch office! 

We are a people-oriented driving school, dedicated to making the process of learning how to drive achievable for all. We aspire to break any existing barriers in the process of learning so that our students are able to reach their fullest potential. We value and respect our students and staff, and believe that creating a positive work culture in which employees are fulfilled, loyal, engaged, and motivated to perform at their very best is a key factor in providing top-notch support and customer service. We aim to leave a lasting impression on all of our students; we pass onto them the skills and knowledge they will need to be safe drivers for life. With learning said skills that are taught by our instructors, we contribute to making the road, and the world, a safer place for everybody. Along with our uncompromising commitment to our students, our mission is to make Drive Rite Academy a truly special place to work, in which our team members feel supported and encouraged to do their best work, and have opportunities to grow professionally.

Since 2014, Drive Rite Academy has served over 40,000 students throughout New York. However, our greatest contribution is in the local communities we service. Thousands of Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Queens residents credit their achievements as licensed drivers to the wonderful staff behind Drive Rite Academy. Our students are our biggest cheerleaders. They are the motivation behind our contribution to the community, and are to be accredited with our wonderful experiences in growing Drive Rite Academy.

In addition to serving our local community, we also service our local colleges, universities, and non-profit organizations. Many Brooklyn College students have achieved their drivers licenses with our assistance. We have also aided numerous participants of non-profit organizations in attaining jobs that required drivers licenses. Together, we are making our community a better place to live.

We place a high value on professional development at Drive Rite Academy. We offer opportunities for our current employees to advance in the company and provide them with the tools to get there. We believe that if you want to be successful, it should be feasible.

Because of our commitment to improvement, we reward our workers based on performance. The more you put into your work, the more you’ll receive in return. As you go throughout every day, working near the absolute best in the business, you will be continually gaining from your associates and passing along that information. Here, the advancement won’t ever stop.

Our training consists of a few elements: Formal Training, On-the-job Training, and Mentorship. When you begin working with us, you will be given Formal Training to learn our policies, procedures, and systems. Once you have familiarized yourself with our protocols, you will move onto On-the-job Training. This is where everything you have learned will come alive, and where our company culture will shine. You will be working alongside your branch manager to help you stay on track and receive guidance. Once you are ready to apply and spread your knowledge on your own, we will give you the independence you need to be brilliant. The Mentorship phase is where you will work with Management to make sure you are on the right track to achieving your ultimate goals.

Everyone at Drive Rite, from the C-suite to a newly-hired intern, shares information, knowledge, and ideas. Being radically transparent helps us all think like founders, and keeps us focused on our customers. At Drive Rite Academy, we don’t believe in micromanaging. We trust our team members to hold themselves accountable for work that directly impacts the business. You can move fast, and learn even faster. We’re committed to building an environment that is reflective of our team members’ unique identity, culture, and personal experiences, in which diversity of thought is encouraged. It goes without saying that our team members are individuals who have families, hobbies, and lives separate from work. Treating each and every one with respect, showing appreciation for their work, and being an encourager creates a healthy environment from which everybody benefits, including our customers. We are dedicated to building an environment where personal and professional growth is equally important to business growth. Because of this, we invest a lot of time into strengthening the Drive Rite Academy culture; we want to continue to create an organization that mirrors our core values – quality, respect, and integrity.

At Drive Rite Academy, we are committed to building a culture where amazing individuals, like you, can do amazing work. If you’re ready to grow your career while helping thousands of people achieve their dreams, you’ve come to the right place.
