About Us

Our Story


Great Start Driving School has formed a partnership with the Oconto Falls Area School District to provide the first locally owned and operated driving school to serve the Oconto Falls area!  For your convenience, we offer classroom instruction for teenage driver education students right at Oconto Falls High School (Room 101).  Behind-the-wheel instruction takes place throughout the local area.  As a member of the Oconto Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, we are strongly committed to ethical business practices and aim to provide the highest quality services for the local community.

Great Start Driving School is owned and operated by Lee Kornaus, a longtime educator and guidance counselor at Oconto Falls High School.  Lee has a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology and over thirty years of teaching/counseling experience, including 19 years teaching teenage driver education. 


Our Mission


Great Start Driving School provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to become safe and successful drivers.   Our goal is to instill in each student the importance of safe and defensive driving.   Becoming a Licensed Driver involves facing new risks and responsibilities, so we strive to prepare our students for success in the most comprehensive way possible.

Our interactive and entertaining curriculum is designed to provide students with the tools and skills they need to drive successfully in all situations.  At Great Start Driving School, we take driver education very seriously.  Our students learn much more than just how to pass their road test.  Our students learn driving habits that will keep them safe on the road throughout their entire lives.


Our Advantage


At Great Start Driving School, we believe in individualized instruction.   Our patient and courteous instructors help students build confidence by addressing all of their individual needs.  Great Start Driving School‘s instructors have over 75 years of collective teaching experience in public schools and 35 years experience teaching Driver Education at Oconto Falls High School.  Thus, students will be instructed by high-quality, professional educators who have had many years of experience working with teenage students on a daily basis.  We even offer free pick-up and drop-off services as well as flexible scheduling options for our busy students and their families.  Here at Great Start Driving School, we strive to offer the best drivers education services available, because we understand the importance of the big milestone our students are approaching–obtaining their drivers license!
