RIMS Driving School is owned and operated by myself, Suzanne  Rimington.

RIMS Driving School is licensed by NY State DMV to provide behind the wheel instruction as well as the 5 Hour Pre License Class. Until further notice, we are only holding 5 Hour Pre License Classes on Zoom. I personally instruct this class and it is available for anyone 16 and older with a NY State learners permit.  This is not pre recorded as the "online classes" and there are no quizzes or test.


As the owner and instructor,  I would like to assure you that I feel passionate about making the roads safer to navigate for everyone.  Having an instructor that is both enthusiastic as well as knowledgeable makes a huge difference in a classroom.  I do my best to make sure you are not only getting the most up to date information as possible but also in a way that is less likely to bore you to sleep.

In June of 2021, we  welcomed Lev Flournoy to the staff. Lev  is offering behind the wheel instruction in most of Ulster and some of Dutchess County.  Lev has more than 13 years driving instruction and is a former pilot among many other ventures!  

Nervous drivers rejoice! This guy has the patience of a saint and a sense of humor to boot.  He will not raise his voice and prefers to instruct with positive reinforcement which is a must here at RIMS


Still need reassurance we are the one? read the many reviews by past students on Facebook, Google and the home page of this website as well.
