Jay and Nancy Childress founded the Roanoke Valley Driver Training School in 1983.
Beginning as a single-car operation, we now have five cars with experienced driving instructors serving the Roanoke area. We were the first commercial driver training school in the state of Virginia to contract Behind-the-Wheel with a public school system and have been under contract with Salem City Schools since 1992. We enjoy training students from all area schools, including home-schooled students.
