A Driving School of Gig Harbor is the second oldest driving school in the state. It is the oldest in the Kitsap and Gig Harbor Peninsulas. It is owned and operated by local college-certified instructors. The school offers a variety of class times for student convenience and the instructors promote an atmosphere of favorable attitudes toward learning. Class sizes are small and the visual aids and presentations are interesting. Classes include 15 class sessions, six behind-the-wheel sessions and at least one observation. A driving permit isn't needed. Its office is located on 56th St. NW, adjacent to the Inn at Gig Harbor and located right behind Umpqua Bank. Classrooms are across the street. Classes are available for all ages from teen to adult.
