Anyone who has been in our wonderful state of Alaska knows that winter is our longest season! Let us help you with mastering the most difficult roadways in the United States by taking our winter driving course. Our Winter Driving course includes a 4 hour classroom and 3 hours of behind the wheel instruction. Due to the unpredictable nature of our weather, the winter driving class has limited scheduling.

Please feel free to contact us to schedule your driving course or with any questions.
