Learn Traffic Safety, Defensive Driving,
and Behind-the-Wheel Training
Welcome to Sabbadino Driving School where our priority is to make safety first and make safety last. Our driving courses, in Taylors, South Carolina, consist of sixteen hours of teaching time—ten hours in the classroom (split up over four class sessions) and six hours behind the wheel—for $300 (price subject to change). Students in Mr. Sabbadino's in-class driving course will learn the right attitude for drivers, defensive driving, the dangers of driving under the influence, nature's laws, railroad safety, truck safety, emergencies, and, as time allows, additional aspects of driving and traffic safety education. Classroom time is 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm once a week. The first session of behind-the-wheel driving will be scheduled during the first classroom time.
Driving lessons behind the wheel (BTW) are designed to teach smooth starts and stops, increased speeds with controlled safety stops, front/rear vehicle judgement, and turning forward and backwards. BTW driver training includes off and on street driving lessons in Greenville and Paris Mountain. Driver training students drive an average of 122.7 miles in the course of the BTW driving classes. A student does not need to have a permit to drive with the instructor; however, a student does need a permit to drive with anyone else. A 15- or 16-year-old has to have a permit at least six months before taking a license test. All students need driving time with parents. By law, 15- and 16-year-old students have to have logged 40 hours of driving time with parents before getting a driver's license. For an additional fee of $50, Mr. Sabbadino is certified to administer the highway department driving test to anyone who has completed a Driver's Ed course. Once you have completed this test with Mr. Sabbadino, you can take your paperwork directly to the DMV to get your license. (Note:
The DMV reserves the right to randomly select applicants for retesting.)

- Off-road forward and backing maneuvers
