The American Automobile Association (AAA) has added The Mid-Ohio School and its Defensive Driving Program to its Approved Driving School Network. AAA, through the Ohio Auto Club committee, nominated and certified the Defensive Driving Program to become just the third driving school of its type in the nation to meet the high standards of the AAA Approved Driving School Network.

“This was not my first time, as I had done another course, not exclusively for women. Either one was fine with me, but it was great to get my mother-in-law and two sisters in-law with me, and it gave the other women a chance to show what they can do. Everyone saw a great deal of improvement and I would do it again in a heartbeat.”
Cathy MacLean - Grass Lake, Michigan, who took the Women’s Only Defensive Driving Program.
