“We live by our core values of people first, transparency and efficiency. We believe the key to safety is finding and hiring the best instructors and holding them to the highest standard of instructor training,” said Nigel Tunnacliffe, Co-Founder and CEO at Coastline Academy. “We are the only driving school in most states to perform independent background and drug screens on all employees who interact with students, as well as recording audio and video of each lesson to ensure everyone’s safety.”
