• Meet Our Team

    All of our driving instructors have an Occupational Driving Instructor License, a license that is obtained throughout the Department of Motor Vehicles after meeting all California State requirements. The State of California requires driving instructors to complete an instructional program for a minimum of sixty (60) hours covering traffic laws and motor vehicle safety. Also, instructors need to pass physical and background tests, have a clean driving record and strong communication skills.
    All our Driving Instructors are employees supervised by the school driving operator, and they are not independent contractors.

    In addition to these driving instructors, our school has additional substitute instructors that are not listed on our website. This helps us to be able to accommodate your needs when is necessary.

  • Antonio Brito

    I have been working for Kanor Driving School for over twenty-six years now, I consider this is a very good company to work for in many ways; but more important than anything is that I love what I do, teaching a new driver to be a safe driver. My goal is to prepare students not only to pass the driving test but to prepare them for many unexpected driving situations; I may have to be very strict at times with my students like when I am teaching anything to my own two teens at home; but, when it comes to safety, I believe no one can ever be too careful. I am at your service, and I hope to see you soon behind the wheel!
