Ms. Betsy & staff were incredibly helpful. We were only there for the road test, but they made us feel like family instantly. And the price was MUCH lower than the surrounding driving schools (I checked). I would highly recommend!
What a nice experience my son had here. Ms Betsy was very helpful before and during the entire process. They are very knowledgeable and seem to really care about the kids. I highly recommend them !!
WOW - Thank you Judge James Metts for the wonderful words and being a judge that impacted many lives for the good -mine being one of them. Many blessings in the new chapter in your life!
Thank you Mrs. Betsy!😇

Update:
I listened intensely to the Governor’s speech today and checked the list of businesses allowed to reopen starting today and May 22. To my disappointment Driving School’s DO NOT fall under this phase. I am in touch with the TDLR and DPS daily, as soon as I hear as to when we will be able to resume I will let you know.
All of us at G&P miss our students and can hardly wait until we can see those smiling faces.
For now, be safe and healthy!!!

05/10/2020

Update:
For those who have seen the ABC report on 'Drivers can now get their license without visiting the DPS'
ABC failed to mention that Third party testing has NOT been re- opened by the Governor or TDLR. We have not been allowed to start operations back up. In the ABC report it is for those that started the TPST process BEFORE DPS shut down, BUT it will continue after we are allowed to re-open. For now we wait.
I will keep you informed as soon as I know anything.
Please be Safe and Healthy out there.

05/05/2020

Update:
As of now we have NOT been given the OK to reopen from the State, TDLR or DPS. ☹️ As soon as I know anything I will post it or you can text me anytime.
We are ready to resume as soon as we can.
Please continue to be Safe and Healthy

UPDATE:

Good day,
I hope that everyone is safe and healthy.
I wanted to give an update to all the students who are patiently waiting to resume drive times.
There has been a lot of confusion out there concerning when Driving Schools can reopen and I will try to explain to the best of my knowledge.
Driving Schools are Licensed through Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations (TDLR). In order to reopen – not only do we need the state and the county’s ok, but we also have to follow what TDLR requires. As of now we have NOT been given the OK to reopen from the state or TDLR. As soon as I know anything I will post it or text me anytime.
We miss our students and are ready to resume drive times as soon as we can.
But unfortunately we CAN NOT resume until we get approval from TDLR and the state, so for now
Please continue to be Safe and Healthy

WOW - Thank you Judge James Metts for the wonderful words and being a judge that impacted many lives for the good -mine being one of them. Many blessings in the new chapter in your life!

Congratulations to my grandson, Joshua Metts, on receiving the Garison Steele Safe Driver Elite Award 2018 from G & P Community Driving School in Porter. Josh receiving this recognition, as my time as Justice of the Peace draws to a close, is very special and personal to me. For 16 years, part of my job has been to conduct inquests, and I’ve seen far too many young lives ended in automobile crashes. One of the earliest was Garison Steele. He was only 14 in December of 2003, when I was called to the crash where Garison and his 15-year-old friend died. The older boy was driving and lost control of the vehicle, which ultimately went airborne and struck a tree. I later learned the boys attended church that morning with Garison’s mother, and after they got home, the boys wanted to go to the store. That’s when they crashed and lost their lives. They were just going to the store after church, and then they were gone forever. Unfortunately, with any fatal crash, there are victims who aren’t in the vehicle that crashes. Garison’s mother, Betsy, was one of them. She went looking for the boys when they didn’t return from the store, and instead, she found her worst nightmare. Her only child was dead.

While they aren’t always at fault, young drivers are more likely to be involved in major accidents because they lack experience behind the wheel. Unfortunately, they sometimes lack proper training as well.

I have tremendous respect for how Betsy Steele dealt with her loss, and I feel she should be an example to others. Betsy Steele didn’t withdraw from society and wallow in her grief, although no one would’ve blamed her if she had. Instead, she made it her mission to prevent other mothers from suffering the same pain by establishing G & P Community Driving School. The “G” stands for Garison and the “P” for “Papa”, Garison’s grandfather. They provide an affordable and intensive local driver education program for teens (and adults), putting all their effort into making their students the safest possible drivers.

Several years ago, the school began presenting the Garison Steele Safe Driver Award (Scholarship) that I’m proud to say my grandson Joshua Metts received this year. He’s the third generation of Metts men to attend Splendora High School. Like Garison Steele, Josh is a fine young man who enjoys church, and his family.

Thanks to Betsy Steele and the rest of G & P Community Driving School for recognizing Josh, but more than that, thanks for working to make sure Josh and your other students have the skills and knowledge to avoid an accident that might take them from their families too soon.
If everyone could take tragedy and channel the energy toward helping others, this world would be a much better place.

It was an honor to speak at the G & P Community Driving School. These young men and ladies will be on the street with you and I. They have worked hard to learn how to keep themselves safe one the roadways as well as your and my families. They have pledged to not have distractions in the vehicle especially when it comes to cell phone use. Congratulations to them all and thanks again for allowing me to speak and be a part of the program.

Judge James Metts

I received this message a few days ago. I found it uplifting and inspiring, not just because this thoughtful lady took the time to write and thank me for something from 14 years ago and let me know she still prays for me, but because she suffered the worst loss anyone can experience, and she took her pain and turned it into something positive. She could have been bitter and angry at the world for the rest of her days and no one would blame her. Instead, she made it her mission to keep others from suffering like she has.
I wanted to share this, and she graciously agreed to let me.

Dear Honorable Judge Metz,
Thank you for taking the time to read this. The forces of nature have been at work and many people have been tested to the core, some spiritual and some physically and some both. Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria reminded us of the power of water, but also the power of love and unity, which is what our God commands. I am so proud to be in a community where leaders pull together, sacrificing and giving to all those around. I hope that you have been able to catch your breath since the Hurricane.
I attended Constable Hayden’s Citizen Academy in the spring of this year. One of the classes you were a speaker. I learned many things from your discussion. On Dec. 7 2003, my life was forever changed. My only child, my son, 14 years old was a passenger in a car with a teenage driver and the driver was going too fast, ran off the road, over corrected and the car went airborne -hit a tree and they were both killed. I have been meaning to thank you for many years now, concerning your decision in my case, it happened on a Sunday, they told me that my son had to go to autopsy and I would not be able to see him for 3 days. My heart could not bear it and I begged the Chaplin please just let me see my son and they told me it would take a judge’s order to do that. They contacted you and you honored my request. To this day I am very thankful.
During the Academy one of things you mentioned was that each case was different and you strive to make the right choice in each one. Looking back, I realize I should have spoken up that night and tell you in front of all those in attendance how your decision impacted my life for the good and how it gave me strength to start the healing process. My sister and I now own a driving school to teach teens and give them the tools they need to make good choices behind the wheel and started a scholarship in my son’s name to reward teens who promote Safe Teen Driving.
Thank you, I am so grateful that we have a truly honorable Judge who listens to his heart. We pray always for you and your family, and we are thankful to you for all the sacrifice you do.
Many blessings
Betsy Steele
