My youngest and only son will turn 15 this summer and you know what that means….driving school. I remember driving with my daughter when she was just learning and it was very stressful. In fact I remember asking then trooper Ball from the Washington State Patrol for his help in teaching my daughter how to drive. well fast forward 10 years and he actually retired from the WSP and started 911 Driving School.The school is located in Kennewick and it taught entirely by Police officers.
