Our History

David A. Diamond and Erin Diamond founded Secure Driving School in 1992 after they both were working for four years at Kingsboro Driving School, Inc. They started as a one-car operation in Sheepshead Bay not far from the present location at 1504 Sheepshead Bay Rd. At that time Dave was doing most of the in-car training himself, while Erin was running the office making appointments, and teaching the 5-hour courses.

With thier patient, easy-going but thorough teaching style, they quickly built thier reputation as one of the most sought after driving instructions in the area. Training and hiring instructor candidates to teach in thier successful style, the school rapidly became one of the dominant players in the market.

Flush with success, Dave and Erin started a family and Dave opened a second school, AAA Driving School of Staten Island (now AAAA) in 1992.

Dave acquired the Scott's Driving School location at 3827 Richmond Avenue in January 2000. Since then, AAAA Driving School of Staten Island has been the #1 choice for driver training in the borough.

With Dave's recent untimely death, his family has decided to continue the business and Erin McGowan-Diamond will again become an intricate part of the daily operation and fulfill her husbands legacy. A fresh look, some new blood and Erin feels the schools can be bigger and better than ever. The Next Generation of Secure Driving dba AAAA Driving School and Diamond Driving School are born.
