About AAA Driving Academy
Who are we?
Button Transportation has been in business for 42 years as a leader in the transportation industry. Over those years they have developed a proven system to train professional and safe drivers.
It was a logical choice to open up a truck academy and utilize the years of experience and knowledge to train new drivers. And so, began AAA Academy, LLC.
Our goal at AAA Academy, LLC is to provide the very best training available in the state, if not the country. We support you, our students, from the beginning of the permit process to the final skills and drive test with DMV to obtain your Class A license.
What we stand for
Every day you attend our program you can expect to be treated like one of the family. We strive to create an environment that is fun, yet disciplined. Success is the GOAL!
