The BTW Team
It is important that both parents and students have trust and confidence in those that will be teaching them to drive. We are extremely selective about who we train and employ, and we hold every instructor to a high standard of conduct. If you are interested in becoming an instructor–but are not currently certified in Driver Education–we are also an Indiana-certified driver education training school. Complete our convenient online application and we’ll be in touch!
