Arizona’s Most Comprehensive Driving Schools Celebrates 20 Years in Business with 20 Days of Discounts, Deals.

DrivingMBA, with locations in Glendale and Scottsdale, celebrates 20 years of keeping teens safe on Valley roads. DrivingMBA is the only driving school in Arizona that offers a comprehensive program using a combination of simulation labs and on-road instruction to teach driving fundamentals and defensive driving skills to teens, and other drivers, across the state.


“Since opening in November 2003, our singular mission has been to provide teen drivers with the training and tools necessary to become competent, responsible and safe solo drivers,” said Maria Wojtczak, Chief Operating Officer at DrivingMBA. “Our system is unlike any other driving program available in Arizona and the whole country.”


According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, more than 3,000 people are killed each year in car accidents involving a teen driver (aged 15-18 years old.) Driving is the single deadliest thing teenagers do every day.


“When my husband Rich and I started this business two decades ago it was a true passion,” said Wojtczak. “At that time, our daughter was in middle school and learning to drive was on the horizon. We were shocked at the lack of professional driver training and education needed to attain an Arizona driver’s license.”


Arizona’s high rate of red-light runners, road rage incidents and wrong-way drivers compounds the complexity of educating inexperienced drivers. DrivingMBA mitigates these dangers through its in-depth training for teens that highlights skills needed to avoid these and other issues like distracted driving.


“Our goal was to develop a program that would ensure novice drivers were prepared for the many situations that come up daily when driving,” Wojtczak added. “Driving has changed over the last 20 years, vehicles are faster, roadways are more aggressive, and the level of distraction today is significantly higher with all of the technology available in cars, cell phones and of course, social media.”


In 2021, DrivingMBA expanded to a second West Valley location and now trains roughly 1,200 students each year in a variety of programs, including classes for adults, seniors, exceptional learners and fleet drivers. The pinnacle of these options is the DRIVE Certification Training Package, a 30-hour course that is one of the most thorough teen training programs in the nation. Spread out over six months or more, it takes participants from permit to official license and includes 14 hours of driving in simulation labs, both driving fundamentals and defensive driving and a minimum of 10 hours of on-road training.


Additionally, DrivingMBA incorporates elements of partnering with parents of teens who play a key role in the total learning process.


“Over the years, DrivingMBA has invested more than half a million dollars in simulator equipment, some of which is used to train police, firefighters, and truck drivers to be defensive drivers,” Wojtczak said. “It is all part of DrivingMBA’s effort to provide all drivers with the advanced training they need to return home safely each and every day.”

To celebrate 20 years in business, DrivingMBA will host an open house for guests to see the school and check out the cutting-edge simulators at the Scottsdale location 17787 N. Perimeter Drive A-115. Thursday, Nov. 16th from 12–2 p.m.

DrivingMBA will commemorate its milestone anniversary by offering an added extra 2-hour, on-road lesson with our DRIVE Certification 10 program, a $180 value, or $50 off any other package offered by DrivingMBA from November 16-December 5, 2023. Visit or call (480) 948-1648 to learn more about anniversary specials or to schedule an appointment.
