843 Lets Drive Prepares Student Drivers for Anything

This month, we are highlighting AAA Approved 843 Lets Drive driving school, whose vision is “to educate Low Country youth and residents to properly operate a vehicle in an effort to keep them and other drivers as safe as possible.”


843 Lets Drive serves the Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester County, SC area and is operated by Charleston native Christi Dangerfield Warthan. Warthan graduation from Hanahan High and received a BMA in Management from Charleston Southern University and a MS in Organizational Leadership from Columbia Southern University.


On her wildly popular driving school, Warthan said, "when we began this school a little over 3 years ago our goal was very simple; to help the students of the Lowcountry become safe, effective, defensive drivers!  That’s it.  We are not concerned with teaching them how to pass a 20-minute driving test, because their life is way more important and bigger than that 20-minute test.  The truth is, when we do our job correctly, the test isn’t an issue for the student.  Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester Counties have under gone massive growth in the past few years and because of that, our roadways have become overcrowded.  This causes additional risk for our teens.  We spend time with our students, driving them in the traffic environment in which they live, go to school and work.  It is yet another way we strive to ensure that our students are truly “road ready” before we administer the state road test to them.  Risk is everywhere, and we cannot eliminate it, but we can help our students be as prepared as possible to face those risks."

843 Lets Drive offers:
