When I heard from Jay that he was finally opening his own driving school, I could not have been happier for him. Our community—especially those immigrants applying for licenses for the very first time—is better served with Jay and his teaching methods. I was very nervous upon learning how to drive, but Jay’s enthusiasm and professionalism immediately put me at ease behind the wheel. His strategy was to teach me to be a defensive driver—someone who is always on the lookout for any potential hazards.

Learn in a safe dual control vehicle with a certified driving instructor. Shield Driving School will assign a specific instructor to each student, who will provide an assessment to help you understand what driving skills should be practiced before you test.
Shield driving school is a place where a man who has policed drivers all his life will share his educational and first hand experiences with his students. Jay Alvarez is an intelligent man and his years as a police officer I believe makes him ten times more insightful than the average driving instructor. - Daniel O.
We assign a specific instructor to each student, that instructor does all of your lessons with you. We think that level of continuity helps our students pass the driving test the first time!
