Meet Our Team!

Kevin Knapp

Philip Knapp

Philip has been working for Virtual Drive since he was 15 years old.  He has worked in every department and has done about anything you can imagine over the last 20 years.  Philip is our Mr. Fixit.  If there is a problem, he takes care of it.  He currently is responsible for all of the 3-D animation and drone video that is part of this new redesign.

Shelby Massey

Shelby is a huge part of the team that put everything together for the redesign of our course.  She wore many hats during the redesign phase, but the one that made a tremendous difference to our course was her diligent work as the editor of our video department. I am proud of all that she brings to this team.

Joel Massey

Joel is your online instructor and he is also the person you will talk to if there are any problems as you move through the course. Joel has been with the team for over 10 years and probably knows more about this company and our mission than anyone else.  If there is one person who keeps this ship afloat, it would be Joel.

Ashley Knapp

Ashley has taken on the huge task and responsibility of our social media campaigns.  As you can imagine this is a huge task.  We count on Ashley every day to let the people know what we are doing and how we are doing it.

Becky Shelton

Becky is the newest member of our team.  She comes to Virtual Drive with a host of talents she brought from her previous assignment with Dell.  In addition to her assistance with our website optimization, she is our full time teen and school recruiter.  Our new program that will be launched in 2024 will keep her busy as she brings a whole new market to VDrive.

Virtual Drive of Texas – The Right Choice

Virtual Drive of Texas is the right choice for your driver education needs. Whether you are on the initial journey to helping your teen get their drivers license through parent taught driver education, or a young adult who’s looking to get their Texas drivers license for the first time, we have a course that’s ready for you to begin today.

It Takes Two

Our numbers above are impressive, but it takes two to be successful. It takes committed parents, like yourself, who see the value of providing a foundation of driving skills that will last their teen a lifetime. It takes that young adult who held off getting their drivers license to focus on their education, who is now committed to getting their license.

We welcome you to our Texas family. We know you have a choice in choosing driver education providers, and many of our competitors are not even located in Texas. We’re Texas based, with offices in Amarillo and Fort Worth. We didn’t move here, we *are* Texans! Let us guide you through this process and make it as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
