Our reputation for quality, years of experience, and friendly service is well known throughout the community. Branch's now offers the Alive at 25 course, required by some high schools or traffic court. Also, take the 5-hour course (required before you schedule your road test) & 6-hour defensive driving course (save 10% on your auto insurance and reduce points), and ask about Driver's Ed. We have a fleet of NEW and SAFE autos, the two latest being 2016 with all the new features - back up cameras - and other technology. Generations have chosen Branch's because of our community partherships and corporate responsibility to our community - we give back!  Before you go out on the road, trust the instructors at Branch’s to teach you the rules of the road, and how to drive safely. If you are a new driver learning how to drive for the first time, or looking to refresh your skills, we have the most "patient" New York State Certified instructors to help you achieve your goals. We have served over 600,000 customers since 1963!
