Thomas RhodesDriving Instructor
Call Sign: Wolf
Tom is no stranger to teaching teens advanced car control skills. Before becoming one of our school’s very first instructors, he was an instructor for two other advanced driving schools. Tom’s taste in vehicles includes pretty much anything with four wheels, as long as it performs well for its designed function. He’s owned everything from a Datsun 1600 Roadster, and a classic 1955 Chevy, to a gorgeous 1967 Pontiac GTO. Now retired from being the senior IT manager at a major bank, Tom and his wife enjoy traveling, and spending time with family.
So why does a guy with classic cars and a great family continue to give up his weekends year after year to be one of our volunteer instructors? Tom sums it up like this; “Being an instructor for Teen Driving Solutions combines two of the things I enjoy most in this world, cars and people. I especially enjoy working with young people. But the most important reason is that it gives me the opportunity to perhaps save a young life or prevent a serious injury.” Well said, Tom. We are truly grateful for the dozens of weekends he has given up for us. Thank you for continuing to be a part of our team for all these years!
