State Licensed Driving Teacher – License #4403-004

Sunshine Driving School is based in Ojai, California and serves students of all ages and abilities throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. First time teenage drivers, seniors refreshing their skill sets, and drivers with physical disabilities all benefit from the highest degree of skill, professionalism and experience that Sunshine Driving School instructors possess.

Founder and main instructor Ken Cornelius, has made traffic safety both fun and interesting for thousands of students over the last 41 years. He worked in management and training for three of the largest driving schools in America before opening his own company, Sunshine Driving School. Known for his humor, depth of knowledge in defensive driving, and ability to connect with students of all levels, Ken brings refreshing insight and a passion for teaching the skills that create confidence and save lives.

Not all driving schools are created equal! Just as all your teachers in high school or college were not equally skilled or dedicated, the same is true for driving instructors. Ken, and all Sunshine Driving School driving instructors, are patient, experienced and 100% invested in making you the best driver that you can be!

-Debbie Godfrey, self employed

Ken and Sunshine Driving School were the best things that could have happened to me during learning to drive experience. After a horrible set of lessons from another local driving school, after which I vowed I would never drive again, Ken reestablished my confidence in my driving abilities. His calm demeanor assured me that I was always safe, and his encouragement (and occasional humor) helped me learn in a positive and constructive way. Folks, Ken is undoubtedly one of the best driving teachers out there. His experience shows in every lesson and interaction. It was a pleasure and honor to learn how to drive from Ken, especially after encountering the worst. Heck, I even passed my test first try!

I hope that this suffices! I could probably write you an in-depth 5 page paper if you really wanted it. I'm thinking a catchy title would be: KEN CORNELIUS, PRAISE BE UNTO HIM! :) hahaha.

I hope that you and all of your family is doing well. I recommend you to EVERYONE! Truly!

Best wishes always,
Olivia, Thacher Student
