Experience the freedom that comes with driving.
We'll show you how. 
And we'll help you stay safe.



Our children are precious cargo. You felt that way when you brought them home for the first time. And you still feel that way today. I understand that. I'm a business owner...but I'm also a mom. You can count on me to teach your son or daughter the rules of the road and how to handle a vehicle. But you can also trust me to help keep them safe. Oh - and by the way, I love teaching adults to drive as well. Because everyone is precious cargo to somebody.


Our Purpose

At Precious Cargo Driving School, we give you knowledgeable instruction and competent training in the operation of a motor vehicle. Maybe for you, driving a car is going to be a must...a lifeline to school or to work. Or perhaps your vehicle will represent fun and freedom...allowing you to meet up with friends, go on dates, or just do the things that make you happy - on your timetable. Whatever your reason for wanting to learn to drive, Precious Cargo Driving School exists to help you obtain that goal. We'll teach you how to operate your vehicle safely, how to understand traffic rules and stay on the right side of the law, as well as how to see, think and respond in a way that minimizes risk and helps you arrive alive.  

A key component at Precious Cargo is that we actually care about our students. You're not a number to us; we get to know you as a person and become invested in your story. Helping you accomplish your goal becomes our mission. A personal touch from a caring instructor...that's the 'PC' difference.
