O'Rourke's Auto School is a family owned and operated driving school. All driver education courses are accredited and licensed by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) and taught by state certified driving instructors. Plus, you'll love the convenience of our online scheduling for classroom and behind-the-wheel training.
O'Rourke's Auto School has been a family owned and operated business since its inception. It was established in 1947 by John (Jack) O'Rourke. John and his wife Eileen ran the school together for many years until they sold to the Reed family in 1983. Ernest Reed Jr, his wife Eva, and their son Ernest Reed III operated O'Rourke's Auto School as a family until Ernest Reed Jr.'s passing in 1993.
The driving school was then passed on to Ernest Reed III. He operated the school until 2007, at which time he decided to sell to a good friend of his, Donna Hoernig. She later retired and her son Kurt and his wife Natalie Hoernig took over ownership and the day to day operations of O'Rourke's Auto School.
In January of 2021, the Demers family purchased the school from the Hoernigs. Rob and Becca Demers now continue on the tradition of excellence in this family owned school.
We thank you for entrusting the driver's education needs of Northampton and beyond to the O'Rourke's Auto School family since 1947!
