Smart Start Driving School Adult Driving Classes

Services / Rates

Our Grafton school services Grafton, Millbury, Northbridge, Sutton, and Whitinsville. The Shrewsbury school services Northboro, Shrewsbury, Westboro and Zip Code 01604 in Worcester.


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 - 7:00pm, Friday 11:00am - 6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am - 6:00pm.

We do a weekend road exam at our Shrewsbury location about every 6 weeks (with a R.M.V. Examiner) so students don't have to miss school for a weekday road exam at the R.M.V.
