About Jon's Driving Academy, LLC

Born of Necessity – Founded in 2002

"All private driving schools are not created equal.
The State of Wisconsin does not provide curriculum for driver's education classes.  Each school must create their own.”

    ~ Quote from a Competitor and Corporate Franchise.

About Jon's Driving Academy

Jon’s Driving Academy is a family owned and locally operated driving school with close ties to the local community. JDA’s curriculum was created based on the needs of the communities in which it serves. We feel that we have developed a driver’s education program second to none and in doing so have built strong relationships within the community. Through these relationships, we have earned the trust of students and parents alike.

In creating the curriculum for Jon’s Driving Academy, we called upon the expertise and input of members of State and Local Government Officials, Law Enforcement Professionals, Roadway Engineers, School Bus Drivers, Fire Fighters, Teachers, and Parents. Their input is always respected and utilized wherever and whenever possible. This is what gives our students an edge above the rest.
