Bill Petaccio, the owner of PDS, is a 1990 graduate of St. Pius X and lifelong resident of Royersford, PA. PDS is certified to operate through the approval of the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The testing route and location has been approved by Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
Last year many parents and students expressed to school leadership in a variety of settings, including our parents' satisfaction survey, there is a need for a driver's education program that provides training and services to improve driving skills while teaching safe driving. After investigating options, this past year PJP submitted our application and was recently approved as a site location for Petaccio Driving School to exclusively provide this service.
When a registered PJP student completes 6 hours (consisting of (4) ninety minute lessons) behind the wheel instruction with PDS, including the theory course, PDS can administer the driving exam. No need to schedule the test at the DMV. There is no additional charge to take the test. PDS will schedule the lessons at PJP. They will even provide home pick up and drop off for students residing in their normal service area.
If your insurance company offers a discount for Driver's Education, PDS meets all criteria and will provide a certificate when the course is completed. Lessons are provided 7 days a week.
For more information about the program, the costs associated, and/or to schedule your student call PDS at 610-948-4979 or visit their website.
