We are cheerful to announce our new Online Theory Course! We have a new location for our class in the Butler Area! We are continuing the course that we originated for the Butler Area school students in 2004. The district no longer sponsors the program, so we've moved it from the Intermediate High School Building to. Class dates for fall 2009 can be found at Classes & Registration.

I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Our mission is to teach safe driving techniques and habits. To impress upon our students that, when driving an automobile, they control great power and that with great power comes great responsibility. Our students will realize that they are not only responsible for protecting their own lives, but that they are also responsible for the lives of every man, woman and child that they encounter on our nation's roadways.
Over the past ten years, we have taught the D.I.A.N.A. driving safety course in hundreds of classes, to thousands of students. However, due to the immense popularity of our Online Driver's Education course, we now offer the Online version exclusively. The student can access the course from their home computer 24 hours a day, seven days a week and work at their own pace. There are several reasons why this course will benefit your entire family, not just the student who will be taking the course.

Normally, only the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) can conduct the actual driving test and provide your driving license, but as a State licensed Private Driver Training School, Driving In A New America (D.I.A.N.A.) will schedule the PennDOT test for you, and assist you in passing it. We also have access to a testing facility that is independent of PennDOT and charges $80 to test at their facility. D.I.A.N.A. package prices will remain the same. Please phone our office for details.
For the private driving lessons, we normally pick the student up at your home or after school. However, if you are outside our normal pickup area, we may occasionally request a meeting place that is convenient for all parties. The private lessons are conducted in our company vehicle. Although we have never had an accident with a student driver, for safety purposes all vehicles are all-wheel-drive, and are equipped with an instructor-side brake pedal, antilock brakes, driver and passenger side airbags, and side impact/curtain airbags.
Our rate for driving lessons is $ 80 per hour, so a 3-hour lesson is $240. The most popular packages are listed below, but you can always customize your lessons by phoning our office at 724-538-4653. If you make installment payments they must be for $240 each, and we will schedule each lesson as you pay for it. If you pay in advance, we can schedule all payments in advance, you will get the multi-lesson discount for 4 appointments or more AND you can use a credit card. Limited time only! Designed specifically for the busy, working family: Driving lessons for only $60 an hour!
T.S.D.I. is a joint project by Butler County District Judge Wayne Seibel and Driving In A New America. It is a one-day class designed to give a judge an alternative to current sentencing guidelines, which would require a guilty verdict to be followed by assessing of a fine and points. This class is specifically designed for teenagers who have already obtained their driving license. This is not a standard "Driver Education" class, and we prefer to call it a "Driver Enlightenment" class. Emphasis will be given to the legal and economical consequences of unsafe driving practices, and particular focus will be placed on safety issues.
This website, and indeed this entire school, are both dedicated to the memory of our beloved daughter, Diana. A student at Seneca Valley with a promising future, her short life came to a sudden end on July 24, 1999 as a result of a tragic automobile crash. The following is a flier that I wrote for the Regional Highway Safety Project, which is a federally funded program contracted through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. It is the sincere hope of our entire family that, with this school, Diana will not have died in vain, and that she will continue on to outlive all of us.
