About Our Grafton and Shrewsbury Driving Instructors

Our Grafton instructor services Grafton and Millbury. We pick up at the following schools: Grafton High and Millbury High.

The Shrewsbury instructor services Northborough, Shrewsbury, Westborough, and Zip Code 01604 in Worcester. We pick up at the following schools: Algonquin Regional, North High, Shrewsbury High, St. John's, St. Paul's, Westborough High, Worcester Academy, and Worcester Vocational.

Please note: If you live in a different area than where you go to school, you cannot be picked up at school and dropped off at home. An example of this is living in Grafton and going to St. John's. You must pick which centralized location (Shrewsbury or Grafton) you want to do your lessons from.

Our goal is to provide our students with a quality driving education by giving them the tools to be confident, competent drivers. We have developed a checklist of driving skills for students to practice with our instructors on all on-road lessons. We will expose them to driving 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.

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.

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 that 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. One way we differ from other schools is that we pick-up and drop-off at school, home, or work for their on-road lessons even after the schools release time. Other schools pick-up and drop-off at a specific location, example: the town hall, making the parents do the running around.

On-road lessons are available Monday through Friday 12:45pm - 5:30pm, and Saturday 10:00am - 4:00pm. This can change depending on the student demand.



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!
