Welcome

Welcome to Keys Driving

Keys Driving classes are taught by Thomas Keyes and his wife, Barb Barteau. Both university graduates, we have each completed the State of Michigan training classes and exams to receive instructor licenses. We offer our students professional and individualized instruction with 45 years of combined teaching experience.

Classroom lessons focus on the rules of the road, legal licensing requirements and safety obligations of the driver. Through class discussion, lecture, quizzes and videos, students prepare to become safe and responsible drivers. They learn analytical defensive driving techniques and are taught to recognize potential hazards in their own and others driving including weather, ice, aggressive drivers, driver fatigue and drug and alcohol use. They will be able to pass the State of Michigan driver education exam and earn a certificate of completion to present at the Secretary of State’s office for a level one driver’s license.

We try at all times to share our love of driving with our students. On the street, in the car, we patiently coach our students in considerate highway use. In low stress driving lessons, the students progress at their own pace with encouragement and reinforcement in developing their own responsible driving behavior.

We have enjoyed teaching driving to teens and adults for many years. We welcome you to come visit Keys Driving; meet with us and discuss how we can best meet the needs of your student driver. We pride ourselves on our ability to successfully teach each student who comes to us.
