Rated Excellent from 18 reviews
Allan Cantor opened the first Cantor's Driving School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1976. This father of four was a History Teacher and Disciplinarian at Overbrook High School in West Philadelphia. He began teaching students how to drive part-time and on the weekends. Soon, he had taught nearly every teen in the area how to drive.
Allan was the best driving instructor around. He was known for his jovial personality and relatability with his students. A stop off to grab a famous Philadelphia cheesesteak during a lesson was not out of the question - and something his students loved about him. Of course it was the 1970s and times were different then, but Cantor's Driving School has always been about Family, Community, and Safety.
As years went by, Cantor's Driving School grew into the neighboring Philadelphia suburbs. And as his children grew, his youngest son Frank joined the family business. Learning the ins-and-outs of being a great driving instructor from his father, Frank was able to expand Cantor's Driving School into four states - Pennsylvania, Florida, Nevada and Arizona.
Today, Frank Cantor owns and operates Cantor's Driving School with his wife, Cheri, continuing the tradition of a family-owned and operated business. They are committed to teaching the pillars of safe driving to their students - Respect for the Road, Respect for Other Drivers, and Awareness of Outside Distractions.

Our family had a fantastic experience with this company. The owner was extremely helpful, organized and customer-service oriented. Our teen's driving instructor, Jeff, was skilled, supportive and provided superior driving education and guidance. I would highly recommend this company to any parent who wants the best for their teen driver. Thank you again to Frank and Jeff for everything!

Thanks to Cantor Driving School. Our son gained confidence driving, and he learned much. He passed with a perfect score!!! The instructor was friendly, patient, and prompt every day of instruction. The instructor knew the driving road course well. We were so relieved when we left it to the pros. This nervous mom couldn't handle being the driving instructor for her son anymore. It was a great experience for us all.

I highly recommend Cantor's Driving School! I used them for both of my sons. They are knowledgeable and professional. The instructors are friendly and made my children feel comfortable while learning important driving skills. Frank is very helpful, flexible and patient when dealing with challenging school and sports schedules. Use Cantor's Driving will be happy you did!

Can't thank Joe and Cantor's Driving School enough for the wonderful lessons and confidence the classes gave my daughter (and no joke, I learned a few new things about driving myself)! This school was highly recommended to me, and now it's my pleasure to recommend this school to YOU! Truly outstanding business: professional, courteous, excellent communication! South Fl residents, ask for Joe, he's simply the best!

I purchased the 10 hour driving package as a complete beginner and was able to pass my road test and get my liscense the same day. I certainly got what I paid for! The experience of my instructor Kathleen was invaluable!, And her encouragement and support reinforced my confidence and I would like to thank cantor's for the unforgettable experience.Thank you Cantors Driving School!

My daughter Becca just completed the Green Light Package with Monty. Monty was so professional, understanding about my daughters nervousness being on the road. He spoke with me after every lesson to go over what she needs practice on and told me every where they went. She even went on the freeway, which I as a mother am scared to take her on! Becca will be going to the MVD in two weeks to pick up her drivers license. I will be nervous to let my child go solo for the first time, but know that she has received exceptional training from Cantor's so that eases my mind!! My baby is growing up:) Thank You Frank for handling some scheduling changes I had to make and always was so nice to talk to. Happy Thanksgiving!

Cantour's driving school is truly great program I encourage anyone who's learning to drive to partake in this program. My teacher was Boyd he was patient and helpful, whilst also telling great stories keeping the long (but beneficial) driving lessons interesting. I encourage anyone who's considering this program to take all 4 days as that is the most beneficial and includes the opportunity to take the actual driving test.

I love this driving school!! They are so nice, I got Skip as my instructor and he makes you feel so comfortable driving. He's a very nice and social guy. He gave me lots of tips and tricks with the rules of the road and driving. I only needed 4 lessons, and I got my TCC! I'm glad I got these lessons, it honestly made driving a lot easier! 10/10 recommend getting lessons from Cantor's.
  Testimonial by Nick Reecer
Just got my certificate of completion for this driving course from my instructor Kathleen today! She was an immensely wonderful and pleasant driving instructor. She was patient with me, pointed out and critiqued my mistakes, and let me through the process of becoming both a safe and better driver overall. Along with that, she was very kind, humorous, and fun to talk to on our learning sessions, with plenty of stories to share to make the time fly by. I would recommend both her, and this driving school for anyone looking for a great and comfortable "learn to drive" experience.

Cantors Driving School was incredibly helpful in helping me get past my fear of driving. I was very nervous before starting lessons, and wasn't sure if I'd be successful on the road. Thankfully, my instructor, Skip Mcomber, was kind, patient, and gave me useful tips to take with me moving forward. If you're just starting out like me, and are seeking driving lessons, I highly recommend Cantors because it was a truly great learning experience!

I highly recommend both my instructor Jeff and Cantor's Driving School to any students. I really enjoyed my driving lessons. My instructor Jeff was very exceptional. He is the best instructor who taught me from the scratch. He really gave me confidence in my driving skills and was very effective. He helped me learn so many driving skills within the time frame that we had in 10 hrs of package.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Cantor's Driving School!! Sean is AMAZING and was the perfect instructor. He helped me overcome a fear of driving and made me comfortable, confident, and at ease, all the while enjoying each of my 5 sessions. I credit him with passing my road test the first try! Every single member of the Cantor's team was fabulous- they were informative, supportive, friendly, and clearly approach each client with compassion and professionalism. Sean, Dani, Heather, Cameron, Kim, Sherri- everyone was an absolute pleasure to work with!! They helped navigate the process, including DMV challenges, as I moved from NYC to PA, every step of the way. I highly recommend this driving school to anyone navigating obtaining a license in a safe and supportive setting. Thank you so much Cantor's for helping me on my journey! Forever grateful

I was a student at Cantor's Driving School AZ and I really enjoyed my lessons and the professionalism that the school gives. The driving school was very helpful and easy to reach for any queries that I had. My instructor Jeff was very remarkable. He was simply the BEST instructor!! He really gave me confidence in my driving skills and he was very effective and helped me learn so many driving skills within the time frame that we had in the green light package. I really appreciate the driving skills that I attained which will enable me to become an assertive defensive driver. I highly recommend both my instructor Jeff and Cantor's Driving School to any forthcoming students.

A huge thank you to Cantor's Driving School! Teaching my teenage son to drive was challenging and stressful! Making the phone call to schedule lessons was the best decision ever! From the first phone call to the driving test, it was the easiest process ever. Gene, my son's instructor, was awesome! Showed up on time, followed all CDC guidelines and taught my son how to drive. My son was very prepared for the driving test that he took with Glenn through Cantors. Cantor's Driving school provides quality lessons with reliable instructors. The driving test was stress free, actually the entire process was stress free! I am so grateful to Gene for teaching my son how to drive. These lessons provide piece of mind and I would highly recommend them! From the scheduling, to the lessons, and the driving test, everything was smooth and it was a great experience! If you are looking for quality driving lessons, Cantor is the best!

  The best driving instructor
by Caroline Casey

I definitely recommend Cantor's Driving School! My instructor, Emily, was the best driving instructor I could've hoped to have. During my three lessons with her, she patiently helped me to refine driving skills and made sure to explain reasons for each route, turn, etc. Her patience and kindness made driving stress-free, while also allowing me to become a better driver and pass my road test this morning!
