Driver's Education

St. John’s Prep, in partnership with Olbash School of Driving, is proud to announce an all-new driver’s education program on our campus. This program is open to Prep students, as well as girls and boys attending other schools.

Earning a driver’s license has long been a rite of passage for teenagers. For over 20 years Olbash School of Driving has been helping boys and girls earn their driver’s license and learn valuable skills in safety, rules of the road, and decision-making. Classes and road lessons are taught by professional instructors with over 15 years experience.

The St. John’s driver’s education program provides students with a complete understanding of the Massachusetts rules of the road in preparation for the Massachusetts permit test. The professional and friendly staff will work with students and parents to arrange driving lessons around your schedule. We offer convenient pick-up and drop-off at St. John’s Prep and in many cases, depending upon location, students may be dropped off at home.

St. John’s offers flexible programs designed to meet the needs of busy families. Choose to take the classroom instruction, the road lessons or both. Students must be 15 years and 9 months to take the course.
