About the School

Jerry’s Driving School (JDS - Jerry’s) is a 2nd generation, mom and pop organization, being family owned and operated, fully licensed and insured – We utilize successful teaching techniques, promoting safe driving practices, through classroom lecture and training aides in various road and weather conditions, defensive driving, drug and alcohol education, vehicle knowledge, mock scenarios/settings, experience, classroom participation, CT DMV manual training and test preparation.

JDS offers flexibility and ease of training, with tailored driving lessons (we pick you up and drop you off, door to door, within our service area), teaching concurrent (rolling, back-to-back) classes without tight windows to complete training and without missed classroom penalties.

You finish training at your own pace!

Our School prides itself on fair pricing, quality and reputation, coupled with safety, reliability and customer satisfaction – Jerry’s continues to be the staple of local driver education and further propels its Founder’s vision into the 21st Century.

Jerry’s sets itself apart from the pack, as leaders in the Industry for nearly 50 years, offering personal service, with various packages, group rates, pricing plans, classes and driving lessons for youths and adults.

You can use (rent) one of our certified cars for your CT DMV driving test with our Instructor driving you there for the test. We need at least 10 days notice, due to training scheduling and possible extra behind-the-wheel training needed by the trainee. Once your driving test commences, you will be one-on-one with a CT DMV Driving Inspector.
Note: As per CT DMV statutes you have to train, behind-the-wheel, at least 2 hours with our car prior to your driving test.

We service Hamden, Waterbury and Bridgeport DMV’s.

16/17 year old trainees (and select 18 year old trainees) may be eligible to take their driving test off-site at our location with one of our cars.
