About Us

Helping students reach their destination through every mile

About Superior Traffic School, Inc.


Our certified traffic school instructors teach a variety of different defensive driver safety courses; to those students in need of a class for a traffic ticket, mature driver insurance discount, driver’s license reinstatement, and student driver learner’s permit. They also provide our students the benefit of acquired “on the road” driver safety knowledge and experience. Each of our classroom instructors teach from a unique perspective based on their previous careers, backgrounds, knowledge and experience. 

Our Mission

Superior Traffic School's mission is to make the roads safer through proper education of new drivers. It's our belief that we can help make a fundamental difference in the way that you perceive other drivers on the roadways, and how you react to critical traffic situations. Practicing defensive driver safety is a personal choice that each of us can make to help reduce accident risks. We sincerely hope that you will join us in this endeavor.
