Trusted family business.

Uptown Driving School is a 3rd generation family-owned and operated business. In 1965 Janette and Jerry Christal opened their driving, Dwight Auto School, in Inwood NYC. As children of immigrants they worked hard and built a business they were able to pass down to their children, and now their grandchildren. Uptown Driving School is a staple of the community and upholds the decades of excellence by treating every student with respect, care, and patience, as they learn to drive safely and confidently.
