Fair Lawn Driving School was established in 1959 by Joseph Lomonico, the former Director of Driver Education at Fair Lawn High School. Joseph took his experience and skills from the classroom to the road, teaching students to become safe and competent drivers. Later his son, Neil, took over for his father. A licensed driving instructor since 1979 and a NJ Law Enforcement Officer, Neil has combined his knowledge of driver and traffic safety with his father's passion and expertise in teaching.

"It breaks your heart a little bit when you read about a student who gets killed out there on the road," says Joe Lomonico, who founded Fair Lawn Driving School in 1959.

That's why he insists that instructors model, as well as teach, safety behind the wheel.
"Some of our instructors have gotten into crashes in their haste to pick up students," Lomonico relates."That's embarrassing.One guy had three accidents, and we had to let him go."
Fair Lawn Driving School, now owned by Lomonico's son Neil and his wife, Phyllis, employs a dozen mostly part-time instructors of both genders.
"The typical person we hire is not trained to be a teacher but has natural attributes that make them good teachers," says Lomonico.
...
If they pass the test, new instructors still can't work at Fair Lawn Driving School until they've had additional practice learning when and how to grab the wheel and use the auxiliary brake -- techniques they will seldom use if their verbal coaching is up to par, Lomonico says.
...
Most novices -- even those with physical or learning disabilities -- can succeed if the instructor shows confidence in them, says Joe Lomonico, who founded Fair Lawn Driving School and taught driver education at Fair Lawn High School for many years.
