About Safe Driver Drivers Education

Meet the Safe Driver Staff!

Mr. Chris Rolwes

Mr. Rolwes teaches all of the classroom portion of the course and drives with students as needed. He has taught Drivers Education for 17 years and enjoys teaching students a skill that they will be able to use throughout their lives. It is rewarding to be able to teach the basics of driving which hopefully will help build a foundation of safe driving habits for years to come.
