Our Story

Our commitment to teaching safe driving skills began with a traumatic “change in plans”.

…. A split second before the tour bus was going to flip on its side, Mark grabbed Dorothy and yelled “GET DOWN!” That action might have saved their lives…

The founders of Primo Driving Schools (Mark and Dorothy Primack) were on a chartered tour bus with a large group of friends. At one point, the bus driver became distracted and lost control of the vehicle while travelling at 70 MPH. The bus flipped on its side and slid for a long distance before coming to a stop. When the dust settled, one friend was dead, many others were severely injured. Mark and Dorothy were fortunate to have survived.

That life-changing event caused them to re-evaluate everything in their lives. It gave them a new and deeper level of gratitude for their friends, family, health and life. That “accident” led to their life’s mission; To teach as many new drivers as possible to drive safely. Primo Driving Schools was created to fullfill that purpose.

That’s Why…

-we teach every student the skills required to effectively deal with distractions.
-we place so much emphasis on developing defensive driving skills.
-we encourage higher levels of instruction than the state mandated minimum.
-we strive to make the entire customer experience a pleasure, from start to finish.

And it’s also the reason that we support Streetwisemedia.org, who’s mission is to… “empower teens to make smart driving choices through peer driven multi-media programs”.
