Meet our favorite Bay Area Driving Instructors!

Meet Kenneth Dupree, instructor, advisor and getaway driver for Push Start Driving School. He has been behind the wheel since the age of twelve and actually drove himself to the DMV driving test alone.

If he were to pat you on the back, you would list it on your resume.  In a past life, he was himself.  If opportunity knocks and he’s not home, opportunity waits. His fortunes cookies simply say, congratulations.

Sharks have a week dedicated to him. Mosquitos refuse to bite him purely out of respect.  At museums, he is allowed to touch the art.  Therapists open up to him.  He once received a standing ovation from a jury box.

His “small talk” has altered foreign policy.  He once ran a marathon because it was on his way to the mall.  Bigfoot has taken a photograph of him.  He can speak French in Russian.  Even his enemies list him as an emergency contact number.

When he has a 50/50 chance, the odds are 80/20 in his favor.   The contents of his tacos refuse to fall from the tortilla.  He once burst open a piñata with a wink and a smile.

Ivy League Universities send applications to him.  When downloading software, it accepts his terms and conditions.
