About the Speaker:

Steven M Wong is the founder and owner of Wong Way Driving Academy. With over 30 years of driving experience in Hawaii, Steven has been educating future drivers on the island of Oahu for over a decade. His driving school started with humble beginnings with his first class only consisting of handful of high school students, which included his second son, Matthew, and several of his friends. However, the school with a catchy name began to grow as word spread of this humorous driving instructor that made learning how to drive fun and easy. Now, Wong Way Driving Academy services hundreds of high school students from public and private schools on Oahu every year. Additionally, over the past several years, Steven has also leant his expertise to thousands of adult drivers around the island looking to earn their driver’s licenses.  To learn more about Steven and his business go to
