FIVE-O

About

FIVE-O DRIVING SCHOOL

Founded in 2013 by retired police officer Bill Golden, FIVE-O is the only driving school in the area that uses primarily 1st Responders to teach in the classroom and behind the wheel (BTW) instruction.

Bill was a highly decorated officer serving in Glenview, Illinois for 32 years. Bill started FIVE-O to continue to give back to the community by offering his years of experience to teens and parents, preparing them for the challenges they’ll face on the road.

Bill knew he couldn’t achieve his goals all by himself, that’s why he brought together a group of passionate 1st Responders to join his team. They range from other law enforcement officers, firefighters, and emergency medical paramedics as well as flight safety personnel.
