Licensed by the Michigan Department of State
Advanced Driving Academy (ADA) was started in 1996 (over 17 years ago) by retired Canton Police Officer, Leonard Schemanske and Debi Schemanske. The owners, administrative staff, and coaches work very hard to meet the training objectives set by the state. ADA is widely recognized for its Instruction from a Law Enforcement Perspective and offers Drivers' Education, and Road Testing in the Plymouth/Canton, Livonia/Westland and Northville areas.
Vehicles Used for Driving with Students
Advanced Driving Academy rotates vehicles within the fleet no older then three years old. The vehicles that are used currently are 2012,2013 Buick Regal's and Verano's. The vehicles run seven days a week. The drives are finished soon after the last day of classroom instruction. On average, each student will drive about two times per week in order to correlate the drive times with the classroom instruction. All our vehicles have the ADA logo and "STUDENT DRIVER" lettering on them. All vehicles are equipped with a passenger side brake for the instructor.

There are many driving schools out there so be careful.
Driving Coaches with a Special Edge in Training!
ADA's coaches consist of instructors with law enforcement backrounds, school teachers with years of driver education experience and all are state certified. At ADA we take a serious approach to driver education. ADA has taken the state objectives and incorporated years of knowledge from law enforcement and teacher experience and designed a curriculum which in our eyes goes above and beyond the state objectives. This educational environment motivates and allows all students to grow, develop, and perform to their maximum potential.
Driver Education Costs
Parents/Students........ While it may seem that ADA charges a little more for our programs, we do not have hidden costs for books or a gasoline surcharge. Other driving schools advertise low rates and then tack on these fees. ADA takes pride in the quality of our programs as well as having the most dedicated, caring instructors/examiners in Michigan.
At ADA we believe you can't put a price tag on safety......safety on the roads with our newer vehicles and a quality program from a law enforcement perspective with only the most experienced, educated, caring instructors are the most important issues when choosing a driving school.
