About us

Our Mission

Every parent and experienced driver knows that developing good driving habits and techniques begin with a solid driving education. It lies in how well the driver understands that each and every time he takes the wheel, the greatest challenge is “staying in the moment.” Life threatening distractions range from negative altercations, to euphoric good news or simply too much media in the car. Focusing the mind each and every time one gets behind the wheel, putting distractions aside and preparing oneself for the unexpected, requires maturity and wisdom that often eludes young new drivers.
At Freedom Driving School, our mission is to instill life-long principles for mindful and safe motoring—principles that will guide and influence them throughout their entire driving career.

Company History

Our school was founded in July of 2013 in Puyallup, Washington. The motivational principle was our employees’ desire to offer a higher standard of driver’s education in an environment that is professional and safe for all students. Our goal was to raise the bar by hiring highly trained instructors, developing inviting learning spaces, and using highly ranked safety rated vehicles that are kept well maintained; while offering services at a competitive price to parents and guardians.

Today, we have six locations throughout the Southern Puget Sound and over one thousand students have successfully completed our program.
