A car emblazoned with "student driver" can cause other motorists to approach with trepidation, but that title can also represent a new beginning and endless opportunities for many people. Rhodes Driving School seeks to make the freedom of the open road accessible to teens and young adults seeking permits and licenses. Its teachers lead students through a state-certified program that includes both classroom or online studies and behind-the-wheel instruction. Having partnered with a court-approved program, the school also hosts defensive-driving courses that help increase drivers' awareness and safety. Those courses can help drivers get tickets dismissed and receive discounts on car insurance.
