About Our Grafton and Shrewsbury Driving Schools

Our Grafton school, located at 53 N. Main St. in N. Grafton, services Grafton, Millbury, Northbridge, Sutton, Upton, and Whitinsville. The Shrewsbury school, located at 415 Boston Turnpike in Shrewsbury, services Boylston, Northborough, Shrewsbury, Westborough, and Zip Code 01604 in Worcester.                          

Our Goal is to provide our students with a quality Driving Education by giving them the tools to be confident, competent drivers. We will expose them to challenges like construction zones, highway and city driving, Worcester's famous Kelly Square, and all the things we know they will have to contend with on their own once they get their license. We focus our attention on those aspects of driving many parents fear due to safety issues. We don't set mileage limits for our on-road lessons like some other schools.                                                                                 

Safety is our number one priority. Our cars have dual brakes allowing us to teach your teens how to drive in situations you may avoid, in a calm, supportive, and controlled enviroment. We use Kia Fortes which have a 5-STAR crash rating.

The owner is not only involved in the day to day operations but also instructs in the classroom and on the road.

We pride ourselves in our students feeling comfortable with the same car and/or instructor if desired. Excellent customer service is important to us. Please make us aware of any preferences to ensure a wonderful learning experience with Smart Start Driving School.


We understand in many families both parents work. This can make it difficult to drop-off and pick-up their teen at a specific location for their on-road lessons.  We are happy to pick-up our students at home, school, or work.

On-road lessons are available Monday 2:00pm - 6:00pm, Tuesday through Thursday 11:00am - 8:00pm, Friday 11:00am - 6:00pm, and Saturday 9:00am - 6:00pm.

We do a weekend road exam once a month at our Shrewsbury location so students don't have to miss school for a weekday road exam at the RMV. We use the same cars on the warm-up and test so the students feel comfortable on their test date.                                          

GIFT CERTIFICATES NOW AVAILABLE!                                     

It is tough knowing what to give today's teenagers. The newest gadgets are likely already in their hands or out of our budget. However, we have a wonderful gift idea. Driving Lesson Gift Certificates in any denominations.

What a great idea for grandparents and family members to give the teenager who seems to have everything. Call our office today and we'll help you with your Birthday or Christmas shopping list!
