Todd's Mission

"Today’s teenagers are tomorrow’s drivers. At Bee Safe Driving School, our mission is to equip our students with the skills, techniques, habits and attitudes essential to safe, defensive driving; not only for passing their license test, but to prepare them for a lifetime of responsible, alert, safe mastery behind the wheel. Our guiding philosophy is that better drivers, from the learning stage on, make safer roads for all of us."

Shea Smith

Shea is the mother of two wonderful daughters , both of whom she taught how to drive, (defensively mind you) at a very young age.
A  proud native of South Carolina  Shea spent the better part of her adult life substitute teaching and volunteering  as much as possible to stay connected with her daughters education as well extra curricular activities. 
Shea has been happily married  for over 30 years, and is an avid dog lover.  Her and her husband relocated  to Murrells Inlet over 10 years ago from Rock Hill South Carolina.  Once here, with her daughters now "out of the nest" Shea decided that she missed being active in  the education and development of young students.  Shea recognizes the growth our area continues  to see and the need to educate our youth on the importance of safe DEFENSIVE driving. We are lucky to have Shea on our team as a Certified Driving Instructor. Shea possess the communication skills as well as patience required of  a Bee Safe Driving School  instructor. Shea is a huge asset to our team and is often requested to provide Driving instruction....
