Top Notch Driving Schools Inc. (TNDSI) is a veteran-owned and family-operated driver training school in Newport News, Virginia. We provide services for areas of Newport News, Hampton, Yorktown, and Poquoson. We are licensed by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. We have partnered with 3A Method Driving Schools to provide our online courses and we are certified to teach AAA's Driver Improvement Clinic in the classroom.
Our mission is to equip student drivers with the skills needed to be defensive, safe, and responsible drivers. We serve our community by providing driver training that helps to improve safety and reduce accidents. Over the years we have helped hundreds of students gain their driver's licenses and prepare for the fast and furious world of driving. And we look forward to working with you!
TNDSI opened on October 1, 2014, in Yorktown, Virginia. Our customer base was built from our array of courses, great customer service, and our ability to train students that needed extra help. We operated in Yorktown for three years before we relocated to Newport News, Virginia.
TNDSI has cars that receive regular maintenance and annual state inspections. The cars have automatic transmissions and are equipped with a dual-brake and passenger-side rearview mirror for the driving instructor.
Our classroom has a maximum capacity of 32 attendees. There is a testing area for our online final exam students. We have multiple Chromebooks available for online testing.
While not all instructors are certified for all types of training, we have at least one instructor on staff for each of these: in-car training, online training, and re-examination courses.
