The Largest Driving School in the County

Precision Driving School South is the largest driving school in the county. We have been providing driver’s training, driver’s education, driver’s evaluation and adult refresher courses from San Luis Obispo and North Santa Barbara Counties for over 20 years. Our superior quality of service, education and calm understanding has earned us a reputation of being the driving school of choice for first timers as well as for seniors.

We offer convenient payments options such as credit cards, checks or cash. You have the choice of paying the whole course in advance or as the lessons occur.

Appointments are available 7 days a week.
