Rite-Way Driving School was originally founded by my grandfather, the Late Great Deacon George A. Turner in Detroit, MI in 1966. He managed the business for many years until his retirement in 2010. As his grandson, I had the privilege of joining him on many of his private lessons. I observed his skillful teaching techniques and personable ways of encouraging his learners. I have incorporated those same techniques in my own instruction style. I started working as a part-time driving instructor with my grandfather before I ventured into the telecommunications field where I enjoyed 19 years of employment.
When I was given the blessing to change careers later in life, I allowed myself to dream again. And those dreams led me to the wonderful times working in my grandfather’s driving instruction business. I choose to reignite my earlier passion of being a driving instructor. After returning to school and gaining the necessary certifications, I taught for other driver’s training programs to gain more experience and update my expertise. Like destiny, entrepreneurship called me and I decided to open my own driving school. To honor the legacy of my grandfather, I named it The Rite Way Driving School. We will continue the tradition of excellent and skillful instruction, superior customer service, and an unwavering commitment to safety. The new school was certified by the State of Michigan on Aug 10, 2020. We officially opened for business with our first on-the-road driving instruction a week later.
My grandfather passed away on April 6, 2020 just 4 days before his 90th Birthday. I am so honored to be able to continue his legacy. I will take pride in every single lesson I provide as I hold fast to the principles instilled in me by my grandfather. We will take good care of our student drivers!
