Established in 2001.
Express Driving School was originally established in 2001 by Frank V. Vongsawat. Frank immigrated from a war-ridden Laos in 1976 and has always dreamt of owning his own business in America. After his retirement from UCSD Medical Center in 1998, Frank embarked on the journey that would lead him to his American dream. Frank started his career in the driving business as a driving instructor. After a few years, he learned enough about the business to open his own, Express Driving School. In 2016, Frank happily retired and handed off the business to his daughter, Doreen. She is currently the owner and operator of Express Driving School.
