EmployABILITY Champion: All Star Driving School

All Star Driving School, based in Rancho Cucamonga, provides online and in-person drivers’ education services to teenagers seeking their drivers’ license and seniors needing a refresh. One of All Star’s owners, Michael Sayegh, met with us to celebrate his business's new status as an EmployABILITY Champion and learn what that means to him.

How did you start your business?

In 1996, the state of California stopped funding drivers’ education in high schools. We saw a need and knew we could step in and fill it. It can be a challenging business because we have to stay up to date on laws and licensing requirements to make sure we’re teaching our students everything they need to know to be safe, legal drivers. We’ve continued to teach people to drive and to grow our business for 28 years now! 


How do you plan to use EmployABILITY Business Grant funds to grow your business? 

We plan to hire individuals with disabilities and buy accessible equipment that can be used by those new hires. One thing we’re very excited about is that this grant will allow us to purchase hybrid vehicles, which will help us take on more students and also be more eco-friendly.

How do you think the EmployABILITY Business Grant will affect your business in the next year?

This grant is going to help us find great employees and purchase those new vehicles and new accessible equipment for our existing vehicles, which will mean we can teach more people to drive safely. It feels like a win-win for everyone! 


What does it mean to you to be an EmployABILITY Champion? 

This grant has opened up a new talent pool for us to find the exact right employee for the job. It really does take a special person to do this job. I’m grateful that the grant is helping us remove barriers and learn more about what it means to be a truly inclusive workplace.
