About Redhot Scott's American Driving Academy

Redhot Scott's American Driving Academy, LLC was founded in October 2016, formerly American Driving Academy. The new owners are Rick and Peggy Scott from Logansport. They have been married for 35 years. Rick has worked in the Driver’s Education field for 15 years and is a retired P.E. teacher from the Logansport Community School Corporation. Peggy is a Kindergarten teacher for Logansport Community School Corporation. They have two daughters and two grandchildren. Abby is married to Peter Lundy, one of our Traditional In-Class and Driver Instructors. Their children are Isabel, 8 years old and Graeme, 3 years old. Natalie Scott, our youngest daughter, recently moved to Chicago.

As an employee of Karen Burkhardt, Rick felt the need to continue the same professional and safe environment that was established by American Driving Academy. We are committed to making this a family business involving our children and making the employees feel the same sense of belonging to this family. We believe strongly in family values and respect the individual needs of each student and try to make accommodations for their individual needs.

Redhot Scott’s American Driving Academy LLC continues to serve the communities of Howard, Miami, Cass, Carroll and Tipton Counties. We offer several sites for Traditional In-Class instruction and Internet Classes for those students that are too busy to attend a Traditional class. We continue to have many dedicated Instructors for the Traditional In-Class instruction and Driving Instruction as well as very efficient secretaries to help with all of your needs.

Our work and dedication of our Instructors and staff has led Redhot Scott's American Driving Academy LLC to be the leader in Driver Education for Kokomo and the surrounding counties.
