The thrill of cruising down the open road is surpassed only by the thrill of watching a chicken cross the open road, but not asking why. Saddle up for four-wheeled thrills with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $19 for a five-hour prelicense classroom-training class (a $40 value)
  • $29 for a six-hour defensive-driving class (a $60 value)

The prelicense class reviews the essentials of the driving manual, DMV point system, and highway system. With lectures, videos, and other activities in the classroom, the instructor discusses basic defensive-driving techniques and tips for driving safely and smartly. The defensive-driving course coaches accident prevention skills while the student and instructor are in a vehicle. The course is DMV-approved and can reduce insurance rates and points on driver's licenses.

Ena's Driving School

Although Rajendra Hariprashad was in the Marines, his most trusted weapon—the one that launched him into private enterprise as a business owner—was not a rifle, but a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse. During his four years of service, he taught students behind the wheel of his own compact sports car. When he was discharged and went back to New York, he shelved law-enforcement career ambitions and opened Ena's Driving School.

Today, the school teaches road safety to new and seasoned drivers alike. Along with prelicensing and defensive-driving classes, instructors lead motorcycle, CDL truck, and CDL bus lessons. Rajendra's business savvy and entrepreneurial acumen have won him press in Forbes, Fox Business, USA Today, and other media outlets. He even partnered with truTV's Impractical Jokers to prank students who were behind the wheel for the first time. Afterward, several neighbors and new customers called to inquire about classes and how to fit a spring-rigged banana-cream pie into the glove compartment.

Rajendra's law-enforcement career continues to remain on hold. "I'm lucky," he says about his driving school and other business ventures. "This is fun. I want to be in the open road."
