About Us

At Blue Ridge Driving School we strive to be the BEST driving school in Augusta County, Va. Our focus at BRDS is to recognize each students’ strengths and to access the positive in each one.  We concentrate on each student individually and provide them with the most up to date learning materials as well as educating them on the dangers of Alcohol, Texting and Aggressive driving behaviors which are the leading causes of fatalities on our roadways.

We provide each student with the proper training to obtain their drivers license and teach them how to drive a vehicle safely.
