About Overbeke Driving School

Quality Driver's Education since 1993

Our Mission

Since 1993, the Overbeke School of Driving has been dedicated to providing quality driver’s education to students in Northeastern Ohio.

Our mission is to educate, encourage and help students of all ages develop competent, safe driving skills and help them understand the responsibilities and dangers implicit in the operation of a motor vehicle. Our ADHD Certified Driving School has one of the highest first-time success pass rates in Ohio and is fully licensed, bonded and insured.

Our Team

Ari Klarfeld, Owner & Lead Instructor

While working as an Emergency Medical Technician, Ari noticed that many drivers, (teens in particular), didn’t quite know what to do when confronted with an emergency vehicle. This concerned him, and he felt that he needed to do something about it. Becoming a Driving Instructor and the owner of Overbeke Driving School has allowed him to get his message across by providing students with the tools and information they need to become educated, safe, and well-informed drivers.

Ari has provided driving instruction to individuals with disabilities and educated Mature Adult Drivers to rehabilitate their driving skills with his very own Mature Driving Curriculum.

Ari grew up in Beachwood and currently resides there with his wife Ariana and children Jake, Max, and Sadie.
