This one of a kind program has been specifically designed to offer young adults on the Autism Spectrum the opportunity to receive their drivers license. This program takes the students from obtaining their permit, through getting their drivers license, thus, helping them reach their highest level of independence. 

Put YOUR child on the road to independence

Our courses are taught by state certified driving instructors. Gersh Academy now holds driving training classes for students in West Hempstead, Hauppauge, and surrounding areas.

New Technology

It is extremely important in this day and age to be able to know your vehicle and how to react to a situation that may arise while you're driving. Often times, a new driver is nervous or skittish when driving an actual vehicle for the first time. For this reason, we have implemented a state of the art driving simulator.

This will allow a new driver to confidently become comfortable with many of the roads unexpected issues with no danger. We have several simulations that will give that real driving experience. This is also a good way to get that "peace of mind" for anyone that has not driven in a while and are looking to get back their independence. Please call for more information.
