"I did the 15-5 program with Rich and my class time helped me pass my written test on the first try without any trouble! He is so knowledgeable of the rules of the road and really knows what he's doing. I'm so glad I chose him as a driving instructor!"Matt Sablan - Driving School Student

The owners, Dr. John Kenny and his son Patrick Kenny started Northwest Driving & Traffic School to meet the needs of the community for a friendly, family-oriented approach to drivers ed learning. All of the Kenny siblings, Stephanie, Thomas, Michael and Stephen, are involved in developing the most modern, safe and enjoyable learning and driving experience available in Clark County.

The Kenny Family, founders of Northwest Institutes, is an established educational provider in the Las Vegas Valley owning and operating a group of educational institutions including Northwest Career College, Northwest Education, Northwest Health Group and Northwest Driving & Traffic School. Unlike larger, more impersonal driving & traffic school, Northwest Driving & Traffic School is family owned and operated.
