Our Promise

We will always work to be the best we can be. We will follow the MVA curriculum guidelines and curriculum written by the MVA. Our classroom will be fully stocked with materials needed to teach all steps of driving skills, safety features and good decision making while driving. Our vehicles are fully insured, will have a full tank of gas and will be clean for each drive time scheduled. We will always have instructors that have been certified by MVA through trainings and background checks.

We may be new as a business, but we are not new as well-trained instructor, so we let our testimonials speak for themselves. We strive to be the best in teaching both in the classroom and BTW.
We are committed to making sure that your time is valued when you schedule for classes and BTW training. We will be prompt for each class and BTW training. We will do our best to work with your schedule that is needed for drive times.
We have set our fees at a reasonable price, not because we are less than in teaching what is required. We want to offer competitive prices in a time that fees can make it difficult for some to be able to attend driving schools. Our price promise is to not make anyone struggle with being able to become more independent in their journey of life.

Our staff from office personnel to instructors will always maintain professionalism throughout their time with Topz N Tipz. We are a team working together for one common goal, to help students become successful in the journey of driving.

Rain or shine, we have your drive times. We understand that life can be busy, and offer drive times and courses to fit a variety of schedules.
