Mark and Bob started Blue Bell Driving School in 2001. They were both born and raised in the Plymouth Meeting area and also both graduated Plymouth Whitemarsh High School. Mark has years of experience in the trucking industry, from retail to equipment sales. Bob served in the US Navy and has years of experience in automobile sales.
In 1999, Mark approached Bob about possibly purchasing an already popular and successful driving school operating in Northeast Philadelphia. Bob was very interested in the idea. The two brainstormed for many hours and many evenings in Bob’s basement, putting together a business plan to purchase the up-and-running school. Things did not work out as planned with that venture. At that point Mark and Bob made a very nervy and important decision. To open a startup business to be called Blue Bell Driving School. After the purchase of a single car in 2001, an office/classroom was set up in Bob’s basement and Blue Bell Driving School opened for business in October, 2001. The rest is history. A decade and a half later, Blue Bell Driving School is the premier choice for driving instruction in the Delaware Valley, operating a fleet of 10 vehicles and employing the most qualified, dedicated and sought-after instructors anywhere!
