Products and Services
Drivers who must take a DMV drive test to renew a license, or avoid a suspension, may be uncertain of their skills and what will be required during the driving exam. A brush-up lesson or evaluation may be helpful to restore confidence, minimize anxiety and improve skills. The better prepared you are the less nervous you will feel. We want to help, and that includes being straight forward about your current driving skills and safety.
We provide Drivers Education for teenagers under the age of 18 at our classroom on the west side of Farmers Lane, across from Montgomery Village. Each class is 4 days, from 8:30am to 4:00pm. Makeup days are available for students who cannot complete the course due to illness, or a family emergency, but if a class is full, a return student may have to wait for a class in which a seat is available. Check your school, work, vacation and personal appointment calendars before enrolling.
Owner & Behind-the-wheel Instructor
I began teaching Driver Education and Driver Training for other driving schools in 1993. I felt there was a lack of quality instruction, integrity, and service in the industry, so I opened Roadrunner Driving School in 1997. My background includes traffic accident investigation at Santa Rosa Police Department and completion of Defensive Driving and Emergency Vehicle Operations Courses at the California Highway Patrol Academy. I drove a tractor trailer for several years making deliveries between San Jose and Fort Bragg, and I drove a school bus in Sonoma County for 4 years. When I was sixteen, and newly licensed, I often hauled several horses to Annadel State Park or Point Reyes National Seashore to ride for the day. A couple of horses in a trailer behind you will teach you to drive safely up and down hills, on winding roads, on the freeway and at night.
Brad has been teaching with Roadrunner for over eleven years. He is a very professional, thorough and conscientious instructor. He is also an accomplished musician. Brad performs with several bands, gives private drum lessons, and teaches music to elementary school children. He relaxes by playing a wicked game of ice hockey.

In his spare time, Mr. Cohen loves to play golf and paint. Recently, he has exhibited a delightful talent for creating the most endearing greeting cards!

I have to wonder about at least one of the reviews from an out of town reviewer. I enrolled my daughter at John's driving school for their classroom portion and it was terrible: basically glorified babysitting. But we tried a behind the wheel with them and it still was not satisfactory, so we did the second behind the wheel driving class with Roadrunner and the difference was dramatic. My daughter said the instructor was much more professional, she learned much more and felt much more confident than she did with John's. For her final behind the wheel session, the instructor said she would prepare her for the behind the wheel test by actually running her through like a driving examiner at the DMV. Not the actual drive, but similar so she could be prepared.
