All three of our kids learned to drive with Ken. A man who not only knows the rules of the road, he knows how to make learning them fun. It's the best driving school in Ventura county hands down.

Customer Testimonials

Thanks to Sunshine Driving School I aced my drivers test on the first try...with compliments from the examiner for avoiding and accident with remarkable reflexes!

Ken taught me to drive in a month and a half at age 32. He also taught both of my children to drive. My daughter went on to drive buses while attending U.C. Santa Cruz. He is the best!

My daughter was 21 and was too scared to learn to drive. Sunshine Driving School was the only place where she felt safe enough to learn. Now she's a confident and safe driver. Thank you!

If you want to learn to drive this is the place to call! The skills you will gain will last a l lifetime. I have proof!
