Lenny Plotkin


Lenny has lived in Pittsburgh for the vast majority of his life. He is a long-time owner of Nu Life Cleaners in Squirrel Hill, and he figured that since he had been a back seat driver all of his life, why not get paid for it. Lenny went through all of his prerequisites in order to obtain his instructor’s license, and now he is a proud member of our team.

His experience behind the counter and his years of coaching baseball and basketball make him a natural teacher and leader. Our students have found him to be helpful at relieving stress, precise in describing how to drive safely and properly, and thorough in preparing students for the driving test. Not to mention, almost every student will get at least one or two light moments in the car that will allow the lesson to proceed without the student being on edge.

When you work with Lenny to get your driver’s license, you’re sure to have a great experience!

While Mike takes driver safety very seriously, he has a silly sense of humor. Be prepared for “Dad” jokes.
