Because of the proud history and hard work that has been put into making Anchor Driving School what it is today, John and Michaela were very particular about the Instructors who represent the Anchor name. Each instructor was carefully chosen not just to fill a job, but because they are very patient, friendly and professional by providing a safe and happy learning environment. Since it’s early days, the school has grown in size and is one of the largest in the Logan area.
In 2018, John and Michaela passed the business reigns over to Mark and Joanne Hickson, who have been a part of the Anchor team for several years. With the support of John and Michaela, Mark and Joanne Hickson continue to maintain the highest professional standard possible, while still keeping that personal "Family Owned" touch.
