Due to Covid-19, the following steps will be taken to keep both the instructor and student safe and healthy:

1.  Instructors will be masked during the duration of the lesson.
2.  All students are required to wear a mask for the duration of the lesson.
3.  The vehicle will be sanitized prior to the first lesson each day, and again at the end of each day.
4.  Any student who feels ill, has a cough, or an elevated temperature should reschedule their lesson. Late cancellation fees will be waived if the student is ill.

"Bill Nelson and Springfield Driving School were the best instruction we have experienced (and we've had 5 daughters go through instruction).  He provided a safe, comprehensive and fun process for our daughter to learn how to drive and be confident in any situation..."

"Excellent instruction from an amazing instructor who goes above and beyond to see students excel in their driving skills.  Can't recommend this program enough and is well worth every penny spent.  Our daugher gained so many life long driving skills... "
