Donna & Richard Christo (Owners)
At Christo Driving School, Inc., we have been focused on developing safe, responsible drivers for over 70 years. Our outstanding success record has made us the educator of choice in the metro-west area. Through our unmatched curriculum of classroom lectures and on-road training, we ensure our students possess the proper skills and abilities to make safe driving decisions and to continue to practice responsible driving habits throughout their driving careers. Our instructors constantly challenge our students throughout their training with distractions, defensive situations, and common-sense conditioning, and they do so in a fun, encouraging environment that students enjoy and respond well to. We care about the way our students drive, and we're sure the drivers we put on the road are the safest, most reliable drivers they can be.
We realize the demands driving school puts on the already hectic schedules of students and parents, so we make every effort to accommodate our customers through flexible class schedules and convenient locations, as well as offering group driving lessons and private lessons in our fleet of current model pre-approved vehicles. It is recommended that you call the Main Office to arrange your 12 driving lessons/observation times as soon as you get your learner's permit (Please note effective May 1st, 2019 the 2 hour Parent Class must be completed in order to begin the on the road training/observation). This will avoid a delay in scheduling your license exam at the completion of the program.
We make road tests easy by arranging the RMV examiners to meet at our Northboro location to administer the tests.
Classes are available for students of all ages, and we gladly offer our services and vehicles
to non-students for road testing with the Registry of Motor Vehicles.

Penalties will be a $100 fine for a first offense, $250 fine for a second offense and a $500 fine for subsequent offenses (View on RMV Webpage).

The RMV and your professional driving school want to ensure students receive the full benefit of their educational experience. The RMV is changing its policy on the timing of your participation in the Parent Education class. It is expected that parents will attend a Parent Education early in the student’s education process. *Students will not be allowed to start on road training and/or observations until this class has been completed effective May 1st, 2019.*
