About Us

We excel at teaching you driving techniques that will help you on the road!

Suburban Driving School (SDS) is owned and operated by Michael DeMay. He has over 20 years of driver's education and teaching experience. Our classroom is in the Perinton Community Center at 1350 Turkhill Rd. Fairport, NY. Suburban Driving School has been in operation for over 28 years.

We are unique in that we are a driving school, but do not give behind the wheel driving lessons. We specialize in classroom discussion and instruction. We offer both the 5 Hr. Prelicensing Class for people with permits and the 6 Hr. Point/Insurance Reduction - Defensive Driving Class for people with licenses. We also offer the 8 hr. New York Safe Boating Course for people who wish to operate a personal watercraft or motorboat.

By not offering behind the wheel driving lessons, we can focus all of our expertise on classroom instruction.

Michael DeMay is the instructor for all of the classes. Mike has been a driver education, physical education, health teacher and coach for over 20 years. He prides himself on making his classes fun, informative and interactive. He will teach you how to handle real-life driving situations without showing bloody movies or using scare tactics. Some of the driving situations that are covered in our classes are:

  • Drivers who don't signal
  • Distracted drivers
  • Effective defensive driving techniques
  • Right of way rules
  • Safe following distances
  • Train track and parking lot safety
  • Drinking and drugged driving
  • Road Rage

We have been teaching good, safe driving techniques for over 20 years. This is all that we do and we EXCEL at it!
