First Step Driver Training opened last month and offers education programs to drivers in Beaufort and the surrounding area.
Offerings include programs for teenagers working toward their restricted licenses and courses that drivers who've been ticketed can take to knock four points off their licenses, owner Tommy Collins said.
The company also provides additional driving classes, he said.
Collins, a retired state trooper, said he spent more than 28 years in law enforcement.
"As our son turned 15, we saw the need for a good driver-training program, and with his experience, Tom was the perfect fit," Collins' wife, Cecilia, wrote in an e-mail.
A home-based business, First Step Driver Training does not have a storefront, but motorists might soon see a car with the company's name on it driving local roads, Collins said.
