Locally Owned, Locally Operated


We Care About You, and You Will Feel It Each Step of the Way

The Next Street is a family owned, family operated driving school with over 80 locations in Connecticut, and now Massachusetts. We have built our business by focusing on fanatic customer service and making the process of getting your driver's license fun, easy, and stress free. There are a few things that we know are important to you, our customers, so we focus on being the best in the business at these important things:


  • Flexible, Accessible Schedules: With our courses, you can enroll at any time, take classes in any order, at any location in your state, at any time they are offered. And you can finish in as little as 1 week during school breaks. There is no driving school that can offer as much flexibility as we do. 

  • Affordable prices: Though our offering is superior, we keep our prices in line with our competitors. We want to make sure that our outstanding program is accessible to everyone.

  • Fanatic Customer Service: Our dedicated Customer Happiness Team is available Monday - Saturday to support you through this entire process, from permit to Driver's Ed to license test, and everywhere in between. And our team is nice. Really, really nice. You'll love working with us. 


Driver's Ed is Our Thing


We've been in the Driver's Ed business for 13 years, so we know a thing or two about Driver's Ed. We've gone from 8 locations to 80, and under 20 employees to over 170, all while teaching more than 143,000 students to be confident and safe drivers. In 2021 alone, we tested 10,000 students with a 94% pass rate! Though we are a large driving school, you will get the personal attention that comes with a small business. 



Locally Owned & Operated


Though our company has grown across Connecticut and into Massachusetts, we're all local! Not only are we local, but we're passionate about making our communities a better place. Our classroom instructors, Customer Happiness Team, and driving instructors could be your neighbor, friend, or the person you walked by in the grocery store.
