About Driving Academy of Northwest Arkansas


Welcome to the Driving Academy of Northwest Arkansas!

Driving Academy of NWA is a private school devoted to providing superior, comprehensive driver education for both teens and adults. It is Driving Academy's vision to help save lives and prevent headaches and heartaches by striving to produce intelligent drivers using methods of training that are fun and relaxing for everyone involved. Watch our promotional video or read our FAQ's for more information.

We offer a variety of dates to complete the 30 hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind-the-wheel lessons needed to promote safe driving for novice and/or young drivers. Students wanting only driving lessons may immediately start behind-the-wheel lessons to learn basic safe driving or to improve their driving skills. While we allow our accomplished, approved students to schedule an instructor and our car to take the road test for an additional fee, we do not rent our car to others for that or any other purpose.
