We are located at 28 Cross Street, New Canaan, CT 06840.

Lewis School of Driving, Inc. was established in 1970 by Chester R. Lewis, Jr., a retired New Canaan police officer who wanted to continue to protect our neighborhoods by creating a school that was committed to teaching new drivers safe driving skills.

Mr. Lewis was very active in the business until his death on February 16, 2006. He has left an indelible mark in the area and will be forever loved and remembered.

The family of Mr. Lewis continues to carry on his tradition. In 1990 Marie Winters Trant, his stepdaughter, bought the business and took on the honor of guiding her elite team of driving instructors. Mrs. Trant ensures that all students receive thorough training both in the classroom and behind the wheel.

We are licensed by the State of Connecticut and our Instructors and Cars are annually inspected by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

All of our instructors are trained personally by us and have to be tested by the State. They go through a rigorous screening process which includes FBI fingerprinting, DCF history check, driving records and health history.

We have seven vehicles for behind the wheel instruction. They are all late model Toyota Corollas installed with dual control brakes and mirrors.

We drive seven days a week and pick up students at their home, school or work in our surrounding towns.
