When choosing a driving school, you may ask yourself what exactly makes a difference between school to school? Why is driver training so needed? Driving a vehicle without any supervision will always be a privilege, and Wisconsin requires your education if under the age of 18 to even obtain the learner's permit. We take drivers education very seriously in the State of Wisconsin and want the safest drivers on the road (especially during all 4 Seasons!).

Oldest - Since 1965 we have been serving the greater Madison area. With over 50 years of experience and being state-certified, we are sure to have all the resources necessary to provide you the most inclusive all around experience.

Largest - The Madison area is constantly growing, and you need your driving school to be growing with it. We now offer 2 convenient locations (Westside and Eastside) with over 15 instructors to choose from!

Schedule ? You will not find much more flexibility when it comes to scheduling your lessons than here! We hold lessons as early as 7am, and as late as 8pm, all 7 days of the week.

Professional - We pride ourselves in professionalism and taking pride in our role in the community for any individual or family that chooses to use our service. We hire instructors of all ages and backgrounds that translate to a optimized and diverse experience to fit your needs. Did we mention we have a service dog? We understand that building confidence and comfort with driving is just as important as the skills themselves needed.

Vehicles - We schedule routine maintenance and tire changes for all of our vehicles, as well as weekly cleanings to ensure everyone's comfort and provide an optimal experience every lesson. Every two years on average we purchase new vehicles to provide the latest technology for learning.

Modernized ? We have an office readily available for walk-in or phone call for quick assistance and questions to be answered for the very unique experience that may hold many. We now have mobile capabilities for scheduling lessons and tracking your progress throughout. Last lesson & road test on the same day? No worries, we will be there to make sure all your paperwork is submitted in a timely fashion!

It is very important that parents take a role in their teen drivers education. It is mandatory that a parent/legal guardian drive with their teen for at least nineteen hours over the six months a teen is required to hold their learners permit. 4 Lakes will do twelve required hours with your teen. We encourage parents to practice with your teen in between their professional driving lessons. Additional practice will help driving become second nature to the novice driver.

We understand that modern day parents have busy schedules and it is hard to fit driving time in with their teen. Many of us at 4 Lakes are also parents! But, we know that even small drives from here to there are crucial to developing good driving skills. Please take time out of your busy schedules and help make your children safe and courteous drivers. It is one of the best investments you will ever make!

Thank you for your work with Patrick. You have done an excellent job! Your attention to detail and the stressing of how serious driving is, is most appreciated by my husband and me.

All the best to you,

Dear Mr. Tracy,

You have made my driver ed experience amazing. I am truly grateful to have an instructor like yourself. You never fail to put a smile on my face. You deserve the world, Mr. Tracy, not just a simple Thank You. But I do want to thank you, because you are a teacher who makes learning fun.

P.S. Happy holidays and I hope your greatness lives on forever.
