We are thrilled to officially be opening our doors in the heart of New Canaan at 111 Cherry Street (next to Swirl Frozen Yogurt). Behind the Wheel lessons will start on March 18th and we are planning for classes to begin on Monday, April 1st.

Why choose Fresh Green Light?

We create safer drivers. Over the last 10 years, we’ve trained almost 15,000 Fairfield County teens to be both safe and confident when they’re behind-the-wheel. In fact, Fresh Green Light students have less than a 13% accident-rate in their first year of driving, compared to a national average of 50%.

We make the experience special for everyone. Getting a license is a time-consuming process that can be stressful for both teens and their parents, so we strive to make the experience friendly, flexible and fun. The 5-star Google reviews from our customers speak to the special Fresh Green Light experience better and more authentically than we can.

We’re part of the community. My wife Laura and I live in Fairfield County and started Fresh Green Light 10 years ago when we underwent the search for a quality driving school for our four children and couldn’t find one. Today, we serve families throughout our area with locations in Greenwich, Darien, Wilton, Westport, Fairfield and Rye, NY.

We’ve served over 50 families in New Canaan in the past few years and, with their prodding, felt it was time to establish a classroom presence in the community.

You can learn more about our program and sign-up for one of our driver education packages at or give us a call at 203.861.1188.

We’re excited to be part of the community and begin working in partnership with New Canaan parents to create the next generation of safe, confident drivers!
