Island Driving School was founded in 1985 in Galveston, Texas and has expanded additional locations to Texas City and LaPorte. In addition, we offer our services at several high schools which include, Pasadena ISD, Anahuac ISD, and Barbers Hill ISD.
Island Driving School has been a part of the community for over three decades, and a majority of our clients are children. As our clients learn and grow with us, we considerate it a privilege and an honor to form a small relationship with them during this coming of age moment. We strive to create a comfortable and welcoming environment and treat each client past and present with the same care, consideration, and respect that we would if they were our own. We hope that we make a lasting impression with our clientele and would love to continue that tradition for many generations to come.
The new owner has over 26 years of driver’s safety experience in the industry and realizes the importance of teaching each student the critical skills of being a proactive, safe and responsible driver. At Island Driving School, we pride ourselves in providing the best classroom and behind the wheel training experience available. We are proud to announce we now offer Driver’s Ed Instructor training and we are an Approved Certified DPS Road Test Facility.
In October of 2017, Staffon and Stephanie Isaac assumed ownership of the school and have been diligently updating and renovating all locations with new equipment, and updated technology. They strive to offer the highest quality of service for their current and future clientele.
Staffon and Stephaine have been recruiting certified and qualified Drivers Ed Instructors and applaud diligence and perseverance in their staff. As well as encourage staff to think outside the box and help implement those ideals to our programs.
Island Driving School has proudly produced Top of the Line drivers in Galveston County since 1985, as well as Harris County (La Porte, Pasadena, Houston areas) since 2011.
