More than 25 Years in the Business
Back in 1997, driving school veteran Isaak Tsifrin, Internet entrepreneur Gary Golduber, and academic Gary Tsifrin came up with the then-wild idea to put traffic school online and so founded WebTrafficSchool.com. Shortly after realizing the benefits of online courses, the idea for DriversEd.com—or online drivers education—was born.
The rest is history. Since then, DriversEd.com has grown to become the largest and most visited online drivers education site in the nation. We've been providing high-quality, state-approved courses to students since 1997 and helped more than 6 million students become safer, more confident drivers.
As a company, we're always striving for improvement in our courses. Our Driving School Advisory Board, which includes all our driving school owners and associates, reflects that commitment and helps us to maintain our high level of excellence and quality.
